GoDex Thermal Transfer Barcode Ribbons
GoDex thermal transfer printers are a popular choice for businesses across Canada. When using a GoDex thermal transfer printer, you will need a thermal transfer ribbon. Barcode ribbons contain ink, which is released onto the label with a heated printhead.
Before purchasing GoDex thermal transfer barcode ribbons, you’ll want to be sure to understand the different types of ribbons available and their purposes. This will ensure you purchase the best thermal transfer ribbons for your specific label and barcode printing application.
- Godex Wax ribbons — Wax ribbons are the least expensive type of barcode ribbons and are best for general purpose labeling where durability is not a consideration.
- Godex Wax-Resin ribbons — Wax -resin ribbons offer better durability than wax ribbons. The inclusion of resin helps the ink to bond with the label material for better longevity. Wax-resin ribbons tend to produce crisper graphics and text and should be used with smooth or coated labels.
- Godex Resin ribbons — Resin GoDex barcode ribbons are the most durable choice and are best for printing chemical GHS labels and water-resistant labels on synthetic label materials.
In addition to understanding the GoDex ribbon types, it’s important to know if your printer requires the ink-side of the ribbon to wound facing IN or OUT. Most GoDex printers require the ink to be wound with the ink-coated side facing OUT. Choose from a large selection of wax, resin, and wax-resin ribbons for GoDex desktop or industrial barcode label printers.
