First there were price increases on thermal labels — now there are price increases on thermal ribbons.

Why is there another price increase?

We have received notices of price increases from our ribbon suppliers.

Inflation continues to impact our industry with cost increases on many of the raw materials associated with the manufacture of thermal transfer ribbons. These include polyester film, pigments, carbon black, solvents and packaging materials.

What does this mean for me?

Effective March 4, 2019 there will be a 3% increase in ribbon pricing.

What will happen in the future?

While we’ve been able to offset and absorb much of the cost, it is necessary to pass on a 3% price increase. This increase affects all thermal transfer ribbon orders shipping on or after March 4, 2019.

All Barcode Systems will continue to work with our suppliers to minimize this trend. We are committed to providing you with quality label and ribbon products at a competitive price, and we thank you for your business and trust.
