Printing refers to taking a blank substrate and printing all of the required information such as on a blister package or a shipping label as examples.

Coding and Marking describes the method to print variable information and data on different surfaces.  All kinds of products have to be marked and coded at time of packaging with information such as lot number, best before date, bar codes or other required data for product tracking and sales purposes.

Why Pay More for a Thermal Transfer Overprinter (TTO)?

Since the inception of thermal transfer overprinters (TTOs) in the early 1990’s, Griffin-Rutgers has been there. That’s why we know that all TTOs function in the same manner, based on the identical operating principles – energize the print head, heat the ink on the mylar carrier,  and with a little head pressure leave an image […]
