Thermal Transfer Ribbon – price increases

Over the last few years, the pricing for thermal transfer ribbons has remained quite stable – if anything, the competitive nature of the market has been forcing pricing downwards.

At the moment however, that situation is changing. The main culprit is the polyester film that is used as the carrier for the ink in the ribbon rolls. There is a serious supply issue because there is only a limited supply of these films and the manufacturers have discovered profitable, high demand applications for these films in consumer electronics and solar technology that is causing the price to increase to thermal ribbon manufacturers.

If you use thermal transfer printing in your labeling operations, you can expect to see price increases for wax, wax resin and resin thermal ribbons by the end of the year – regardless of which manufacturers products you use.

All is not lost however, here at Winco ID we have great relationships with many of the top manufacturers in the industry which enables us to offer some of the best pricing around. We can also help control costs by evaluating your applications and making sure you are using the most cost-effective ribbon formulations.

Do you want to be able to control the costs of your labeling? Give me a call at 603-598-1553 x237 and our team of experts is ready to help!
