Zebra IQ Color Labels for Thermal Barcode Printing

If you’re looking for a good thermal printing method, but would like to add a bit of color, you may want to check out the Zebra IQ Color Label.

Based off existing thermal technology, the label is heated in order to create a print. However, the Zebra IQ Color takes things a step farther by making use of labels coated with an invisible, heat-activated ink. The ink is placed in pre-specified areas by the user and allows users to print color shapes, reverse images, graphics and text all atop the thermal label.

Best of all, the Zebra IQ Color Labels will work with your existing Zebra printers.

So you’re thinking great, these labels will solve my problems but I don’t want to buy new printers to print them. Well, great news these labels will work with your existing Zebra printers!
