  • AS1016TTR-S is our group code for security thermal transfer ribbons, irrespective of printer/substrate. It serves a range of substrate/labels applied by a broad base of manufacturing/distributing/printing outlets to protect counterfeiting of their products. So, please specify substrate material type when you enquire/order  
  • Using a standard 25.4mm ID core, we offer ribbons to suit substrate & printer ribbon inking/winding/core make-up. Core material options; cardboard & plastic.  Custom Cores are considered, even for less well known thermal transfer printers. Just forward a sample, in this case!
  • View Printer Brochure & Ribbon M.O.Q. Brochure below to aid selection of printer and specification of box size/quantity of ribbon you wish to buy. Usually, M.O.Q is 1 box per ribbon size
  • Why this ribbon? Crooks are not able to create thermal transfer ink ribbons in the exact hue of the colour of the print from our ribbon.  So, this means our UV TTR makes your property even more secure and authentic.  Customers, warehouse staff and distributors know that your property is genuine only when the property/document/product or its label, packaging film and barcode are security-printed.
