With a monochrome printer, you can print 1 single color at a time. So you can choose between thermal direct and thermal transfer or Foil printing. Foil printing is when you apply a layer of foil in, for example, gold, silver, red, green, black or white over the printed material in certain areas. Foil printing gives a luxurious look and highlights certain areas extra well. With a layer of gold or silver foil on certain parts of your design you give a very special effect to your labels. Using a black ribbon allows you to create perfect high quality black and white prints.
