Choose the interfaces you want and then select the version of printer, eg Direct Thermal (no ribbon required) or Thermal Transfer (ribbon required). Direct thermal labels are short term labels whereas Thermal Transfer is used for labels that are meant to look good for a long time. A thermal transfer printer can do either method whereas a direct thermal printer can only do direct thermal printing.
