When it comes to direct thermal labels, quality can make or break your business operations. Recently, we conducted a print test comparing our labels with those from Company X, using the same machine and adjusting the printing speeds for both. The results were telling. Company X’s label displayed fading on the left side of the zebra image, a common issue when cheaper paper materials are used. The blacks lacked richness and depth, which can be particularly problematic for printing barcodes and QR codes. Incomplete fill-ins in these areas can render scans unsuccessful, leading to operational inefficiencies and potential customer dissatisfaction.

In contrast, our Continental Data Label (CDL) labels showcased true, solid blacks, thanks to the high-grade paper we use. This quality ensures that barcodes and QR codes are fully legible and scannable, maintaining the efficiency and reliability that your business depends on. Even when we adjusted the print speeds for Company X’s labels, the print quality remained subpar. This experiment underscores the importance of choosing high-quality materials for your labeling needs.

When selecting direct thermal labels, it’s crucial to consider the quality of the print. Opting for cheaper alternatives might save you money initially, but it can cost you more in the long run. Don’t let compromised quality affect your business. Contact us today for a quote and experience the difference that premium quality labels can make.
