Thermal Transfer Ribbon industry continued price increases

It appears that the month of March will be the Euby blog’s continuing material cost increase announcement month  !  TTR ( Thermal Tranfer Ribbons ) material ( PET Film ) which is the most significant material in making the ribbons continues to be in very tight supply.  World events are not helping…..and the manufacturers continue to move their capacity away from TTR to more profitable lines.  These coupled together are driving the pricing higher and higher…add to that the resins, waxes and solvents ( there is a common thread  in those products ) that make up the balance of the raw materials are all seeing increases,  reulting in even more upward pressure.  Stock up on TTR ribbons now if you use them…it will get worse for a while before it gets better. Have a great weekend !  EUBY
