Zebra’s full line of certified labels ensures that your printer provides the quality, reliability, and performance you expect.

Printing supplies can impact everything from printhead lifespan to operational efficiency. That’s why Zebra designs, produces, and rigorously pre-tests our own line of thermal printing supplies to ensure consistent, optimized performance of your Zebra printer. Zebra labels are also known as Certified Zebra Supplies.

Genuine Zebra Labels: Available in Many Different Materials

Zebra paper labels are designed for shipping labels and short-term asset tags.

Zebra polypropylene labels handle demanding internal environments.

Zebra polyester labels provide superior print quality with an extremely rugged material to survive any internal or external environment.

Zebra labels also come in hard-to-find label sizes and can be created custom to your specific requirements. Which Zebra label is right for your printer?

Direct Thermal Printer Labels

Direct thermal printers utilize a chemically treated label/stock that turns black when the thermal printhead applies heat to the surface of the material. These printers don’t require any ribbon, ink, or toner to print, making them a very cost-effective solution. Direct thermal printing can fade over time and should avoid excessive heat or exposure to sunlight for best results. 

Thermal Transfer Printer Labels

Thermal transfer printers are the perfect solution for long term labeling as they utilize a ribbon for printing. As the printhead applies heat to the ribbon, it melts onto the label surface which can be a variety of materials including polyester and polypropylene. With a longer lifespan and options for rugged label materials, thermal printers are ideal for product labeling, inventory and asset tracking, and outdoor applications.

It’s a fact: Not all labels are made the same. While most labels serve the same identification purposes, different application environments may call for different-structured labels, which is why there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all labeling application. To help you evaluate your label’s performance, Barcodes, Inc. suggests searching for the following tell-tale signs of poor label performance: 

  • Fading/smeared barcodes
  • Peeling adhesives
  • Scraped printheads
  • Frequent printer jams caused by adhesive build-up
  • Pre-printed color build-up

Choose the better option

Crafted from consistent pre-tested materials, Zebra’s Certified Consumables are designed to eliminate the effects of inferior labels such as the ones listed above while also delivering:

  • Temperature-resistant labels that can take the heat of thermal printing
  • High-performing RFID labels that secure 99.99% visibility
  • Smooth coating to avoid printhead scraping
