There are many types of direct thermal and thermal transfer label face-stocks in the marketplace, from uncoated to full top-coated. In one of our previous blog posts we talked about how top-coated labels – which is the only face-stock that we use – will lower your total cost of ownership compared to uncoated labels. And while that’s a major reason why you should switch to top-coated labels, there are actually many more benefits you get from making the switch.
Benefits of top-coated labels over uncoated labels include:
- Improved label quality – top-coated labels are more resistant to scratches, moisture, light, chemicals, and other contaminants than uncoated labels. This means that the labels can better withstand a variety of environments and will remain scannable for a longer period of time compared to uncoated labels.
- Improved efficiency – top-coated labels can be printed at higher speeds, so you can print more labels in a shorter period of time.
- Improved level of satisfaction – 100% of the clients who switched to OMNI report an increased level of satisfaction over their previous label supplier.
If you’re currently using uncoated or even semi-coated labels, now is the time to switch to top-coated labels. Give us a call at 1-800-252-2533 today. You’ll be glad you did!
