Zebra is an international leader in the field of electronic equipment especially known for its printing equipment and devices. Zebra printers are created for small-scale printing items such as Zebra labels, tags, invoices, tickets, packing slips and bracelets. Zebra labels are printed using direct thermal or thermal transfer printing techniques. Depending upon their application, output and efficiency qualities Zebra printers are classified into mobile, desktop and commercial printers. Easy and light-weight, Zebra printers include functional updatable software and need very little upkeep in order to produce top quality Zebra labels.
There is a big spectrum of Zebra printer labels, tags, tickets and other printer accessories differing in sizes, shapes and materials to be used as premade consumables for Zebra printers. Zebra printer labels and items include:
Self-adhesive Zebra labels
Zebra labels are printed by means of direct thermal or thermal transfer printing method on paper or synthetic products. Zebra labels have a three-layer structure consisting of a surface material (with or without finish), a glue layer and a base.
