Advanced Barcode & Label Technologies stocks a wide selection of Industrial Thermal Transfer Labels. Supplies include receipt paper, tags, thermal transfer paper and ribbon for all labeling solutions.
We work with you to give you a label designed to suit your needs not our production capabilities. We encourage producing samples for testing before production begins, this way any problems are uncovered before your labels are installed.
Racking labels can be made of a number of different materials but in our experience Polyester (sometimes referred to as Mylar) produces the most long lasting and durable label.
We have different options on how the labels are printed including UV cured inks (the most durable) and thermal transfer.
All labels can be laminated with a clear or matte clear Polyester film.
Additional options include:
- Magnetic backing
- Retro reflective surface for long range scanning
- Block-out material to cover up old labels
- Dual bar codes to allow close range as well as long range scanning
Destructible – After label bonds to the surface it becomes impossible to remove the label in one piece.
Stock labels are printed 1 color black with the words “Warranty Void if Removed” laminated with protective clear polyester on rolls of 1,000.
Labels for cars, trucks, heavy duty tractors, mass transit vehicles and replacement parts.
Automotive & Industrial Equipment industries requires the need for:
- Barcoding for Item level tracking
- High tack long term adhesive
- High performance UL & CSA facestocks
- Durable graphics for easy brand identification
- Equipment and processes in place to prevent duplication of serialized labels
Providing Customized Automotive & Industrial Labels
Many times the combination of two or more of the above requirements leads to the creation of custom labels designed for a particular customer’s application. ABLT specializes in developing label systems to address the specialized needs of the Automotive & Industrial Equipment companies that we work with.
Our custom food product labels make that great first impression that leads to sales.

Our digital press uses brilliant colorfast UV inks to produce an image that will make your products stand out.
Digital print means we can produce very short test runs or gang a number of SKU’s together to cut down on setup costs for our customers.
Gold or Silver foil adds a rich and distinctive touch of to your product for a lasting impression.

Scanners – Portable Data Terminals
ABLT has partnered with a small number of AIDC (Automatic Identification and Data Capture) manufacturers that have demonstrated that they can deliver both quality and cost competitive data collection equipment. The two standouts in our opinion are Honeywell and Unitech.
In 2007 Honeywell purchased HHP the leader in linear and 2D handheld barcode scanners based on imaging technology. Time and again Honeywell has demonstrated superior quality with ultra fast image capture when it comes to barcode data collection.
Unitech offers a very diverse line of portable mobile computers and data collection terminals. From their straightforward HT580 with a DOS OS to the PA968II with WiFi, GPS, color camera, and color touch screen, Unitech has something to fit every need.
ABLT designs custom label blanks to your unique specifications using a wide array of poly-face stocks, papers and specialty adhesives.
All label blanks can be pre-printed with eye-catching customized logos.
ABLT’s label consultants walk you through the process of understanding where the label will be applied, to what surface, in what environment and any other conditions that will affect the label’s performance.
Variables include shape, size, material, adhesive and/or partial print for in-house serialization.
A short list of materials include:
- Metalized Poly and Paper
- Clear with Eye Marked Liner
We have carefully selected a small group of third party software vendors to represent who offer very important tools in the collection of variable data.
Bartender by Seagull Scientific
Years of printing bar codes and variable data labels have lead us to conclude that we get the cleanest reading barcodes when using Bartender label design software. Seagull designed the very first windows print driver and their print drivers are included with many of the thermal transfer printers sold today.
Bartender label design software is easy to use and can be integrated with the customers current software systems.

ABLT has been using Thermal Transfer printers in the production of numbered and barcoded labels since the mid 80’s. During this time we have developed an extensive knowledge of the printers on the market. We can provide our customers printers based on their specific needs, printing environment, and print volume.
In our manufacturing process, we currently are using printers from Datamax, Zebra, Sato, and QuickLabel Systems. We are a Datamax-O’neil partner and are resellers of Zebra and Sato.
Our experience with many of the different ribbon manufactures is that there is no substitute for consistent quality. After close to 30 years of testing thermal transfer ribbons, we have chosen to align ourselves with ITW thermal films because of their consistency of quality.
In addition, we have a group of ribbons that when combined with 3M’s TT3 labels stock are resistant to many oils, greases, solvents, and abrasion. For numerous customers, we have been able to design printing systems that allow them to print their labels in-house without the need of an overlamination film.
We keep in stock many sizes of Wax, Wax/Resin and Resin ribbon for immediate delivery. We only sell ribbon that we would use in our own production.
Custom Asset Labels and Serialized Labels
Quality – Asset tracking labels, produced from extra durable polyester label stock, are resistant to heat and chemicals. Our custom asset labels can be imprinted with your logo to distinguish your assets from that of any other and to reinforce brand awareness. A white background is most desirable when adding bar codes to labels, but matte silver can also be used.
Fast – Samples can be shipped same day and normal orders are usually shipped in 5 days. [Read more…]
Tactile Triangle Hazard Warning Labels
The symbol consists of a raised equilateral triangle and is normally made of a clear plastic with permanent adhesive. EU countries require that toxic, flammable, or dangerous products carry this mark. These tactile labels comply with BS EN ISO 11683: 1997.
Because these labels are embossed, the tactile triangle mark will not crack and fall off during application like some others do. [Read more…]

Hot Foil Stamping
Hot foil stamping and embossing create richly textured labels that add perceived value to products. These processes are often used on specialty foods, wine, and high-end retail packaging to denote an exceptional level of quality.
Hot foil stamping is a dry printing process in which color pigments or metallic foil is transferred from a continuous roll to the label using heat, pressure and time. The foils can be a solid color, metallic (gold, silver or copper), refractive, or holographic.
Embossing gives labels a 3D look and feel. The process requires a male and female die that presses an image into the label material to create raised design.

- University seals and documents
- Business anniversary decals
- Retail gift boxes and bags
