Custom Wax/Resin Ribbon Solutions

Custom Wax/Resin Ribbon solutions offer more durability than Wax Ribbons and less than Resin Ribbons. These labels are capable of withstanding rough handling, abrasion, occasional chemical exposure, and some outdoor elements; however, its construction limits its ability to withstand contact with water and moisture.

This material is designed to print on smooth paper and paper-coated labels, such as semi-gloss or high-gloss. Our custom Wax/Resin labels are often used for printed images and information that must withstand multiple scans, despite exposure to the aforementioned elements.
