Frequently Asked Questions
What makes SCTTL so different from the Durable/Permanent labels listed on Google and Yahoo?
The labels you see listed on other sites are usually pre-printed labels from label converters and printers. They cannot be printed On-Demand with Direct Thermal printers. In most cases you order rolls of pre-printed labels and use them sequentially.

SCTTL allows you to print what ever information you want, when you want, on a durable, long lasting-label with a Direct Thermal printer! Print variable data on demand. No one else can offer this unique durable label because it's our own patented technology.
I think my current Direct Thermal labels work fine why all the fuss over durability?
You might not realize how delicate your direct thermal labels really are. Even the slightest mishandling or exposure to sun and heat can quickly render the labels useless. Even with careful handling and storage thereís no guarantee how long the image will last.

Thermal transfer labels have a much longer life by the nature of their construction and can be designed to resist abrasion, heat, sun, chemicals and moisture. SCTTL can provide the durability you need and the convenience of direct thermal printers.
What do you mean by label construction?
SCTTL consist of a number of components that make up each label which can be mixed and matched to meet the specific requirement for the label. We select the label material, paper or synthetic (plastic). Then we choose the type of ribbon; wax, wax-resin or resin. Then the best adhesive to use; rubber, acrylic or modified acrylic. Choices are made to meet the specific needs for the particular label application.
I donít see the label size or printer I use listed on your site can I still use SCTTL?
We frequently develop custom labels to fit a customerís requirements. SCTTL works with most direct thermal and thermal transfer printers on the market today. Labels can be customized by size, label color, print color, adhesion and resistance to environmental hazards.
