4 Inch X 7 Inch Thermal Transfer and Direct Thermal Labels

4" X 7" Thermal Labels

Over the past few years, we have seen a growing demand for 4 Inch X 7 Inch thermal transfer and direct thermal labels.  Why the reason for the change?

4 X 7 Inch Thermal Labels With A "Tab" Allow For Additional Content

Most times it’s a move from a standard 4 Inch X 6 Inch thermal label to the larger 4 Inch X 7 Inch thermal label to allow for expanded information and most times a removable 1 Inch tab to apply to internal documentation.

The tab commonly contains information such as:

  • Order Number
  • Order Date
  • Tracking or Pro Number
  • Pick Ticket Number
  • Internal Barcode

4 X 7 Inch Thermal Labels With NO Tab

In some cases, Labelmatch has produced a 4 X 7 thermal label without the 1" tab at the top.  In these cases, 4 X 6 or smaller labels will not suffice without giving up content.  Labelmatch does have the tooling to produce this product but it is not a stock product.

Questions and Answers Regarding 4 X 7 Thermal Labels

Q:  Can we run the 4 Inch X 7 Inch Thermal Labels as direct thermal (no ribbon required) and thermal transfer (ribbon required)?
A:  Yes, Labelmatch can provide either direct thermal (no ribbon required) or thermal transfer (thermal transfer ribbon required)

Q:  What 4 X 7 roll size options are available?
A:  We have produced the following variations.

  • 3″ Core with 8″ Outside Diameter – Direct Thermal or Thermal Transfer Labels Wound In or Wound Out
  • 1″ Core with 4″ Outside Diameter -Direct Thermal or Thermal Transfer Labels Wound Out
  • 1″ Core with 5″ Outside Diameter -Direct Thermal or Thermal Transfer Labels Wound Out

The 8 Inch diameter rolls are used in industrial/commercial sized thermal printers.  The 5 Inch and 4 Inch diameter rolls are generally used in desktop (clamshell) printers.

Q:  Can you produce the 4 X 7 Thermal Labels as a fanfold product?
A:  Yes.  Generally, we produce them as 1000 or 2000 labels per stack with 2 stacks per carton (we love the fanfold option as it allows users to run large batches and leave the printer unattended to re-stack as they are printed.

Q:  Does Labelmatch carry 4 Inch X 7 Inch thermal labels as stock items?
A:  No, and to our knowledge, they are not available as stock items in the marketplace.  But, we have all the tooling required so the only cost is the labels and shipping.
