The suggested labelling system for cartons that will be on the shelf for over a year is?

• A.

Direct thermal

• B.

Thermal transfer

• C.

Pressure sensitive

• D.

Hot melt label

B. Thermal transfer
Explanation
Thermal transfer is the suggested labelling system for cartons that will be on the shelf for over a year. This method uses a thermal print head to transfer ink from a ribbon onto the label, creating a long-lasting and durable print. Unlike direct thermal printing, which fades over time, thermal transfer labels can withstand exposure to light, heat, and moisture, making them ideal for long-term storage. Pressure sensitive and hot melt labels are not specifically designed for long-term durability, making thermal transfer the best option in this scenario.

Hot melt tape is the recommended box sealing tape for a damp environment because it is made from synthetic rubber adhesive that has good resistance to moisture. This type of tape is designed to maintain its adhesive properties even in humid conditions, ensuring that the boxes remain securely sealed. Acrylic, filament, and masking tapes may not offer the same level of moisture resistance and could potentially lose their adhesion in a damp environment.

Unlike regular slotted cartons or roll end tuck tops, Tri-Tubes have a triangular shape that allows them to fit snugly together, minimizing wasted space.
