Label printer/applicator

The TwinPrint label printer/applicator can print on both sides of p-s label stock--the top surface and the liner. By selectively die-cutting the label construction, a portion of the liner remains with the label. A 4x4-in. label can contain as much information as a standard 4x6-in. PS label, which is a 30-percent reduction in label material, the co. reports. The printer/applicator uses direct thermal/thermal printing or direct thermal/thermal-transfer printing. In the case of direct thermal/thermal printing, the label printer applicator can use the patented 2STTM direct thermal paper, a thermally sensitive facestock with a thermally-sensitive coated liner.
