Thermal Transfer Printing Systems
Frequently Asked Questions about the printing systems.
What are the main differences between the SEW02 & SEW03?
The SEW02 comes with a ZD220 Printer which has a 200dpi print-head and the SEW03 comes with the ZD420 printer, which has a 300dpi print-head. The difference between the qualities is minimal; however the 300dpi is better suited for smaller fonts, finer details and single colour logos. The 200dpi is more suited to just printing text/care symbols on to the materials. The SEW03 printer can also use larger printer ribbons (the inks) up to 300 Meters per ribbon, supplied on 1” (25mm) Cores.
Does the Keep away from fire need to be printed in Red?
As warning information it needs to be bold and visible on the labels. It is therefore recommended that the warning information “KEEP AWAY FROM FIRE” should be printed in Red.
Does this System come with any software?
Yes, it comes with Label Design Software called “Designer Essentials 3”, you can design all the text and care symbols (using our windows fonts) in the software, and import your single colour logos to add to your design too.
What label widths can I print onto?
Our printers can print from 20mm width up to 100mm Widths of material; you just need to make sure you have a printer ribbon (the ink) wider than the label material, with a maximum ribbon width of 110mm.
How many colours can I print on to the labels?
These are Desktop thermal transfer printers, which are mono-colour. This means they can only print 1 colour at a time on to the materials. With Warning information often printed in Red, we would therefore recommend printing a separate label for the Red Warning Text.
Can you print onto Front and Back of the labels?
Our Printers are only able to print onto 1 side of the material, although some of our materials can be printed double sided, you would have to feed flip the material over and run it back through the printer, however its rather tricky to match it up.
Can I use your printers with an Apple MAC?
Thermal Printers have been manufactured to work with Microsoft Windows. So we would always recommend using our printer package deals with a Windows based computer. We do supply a MAC printer driver (at an extra cost), that can then enable you to use the printer with your MAC; however we currently do not have any suitable label design software.
How much do the Printer Ribbon (Inks) Cost?
We offer various different colour inks, with the most common ribbons a Black Printer Ribbon. These start from £8.00 + VAT
Does the Printer come with a Starter Kit?
We offer both package deals with 1 Printer Ribbons and 1 Roll of Satin to get you printing!
