Thermal transfer printer produce images by burning dots onto special paper.

Thermal transfer printers use colored waxes and heat to produce images by burning dots onto special paper. The colored wax papers are not required for black-and-white output because the thermal print head will register the dots on the paper. For people who want the highest-quality color printing available with a desktop printer, thermal printers are the answer. However, they are expensive, and they require expensive paper. Thus, they are not generally used for jobs requiring a high volume of output.

It is not uncommon these days to receive a crisply printed letter rendered on a word processor in an envelope with a handwritten address. Why? Because the person writing the letter does not have, or doesn’t know how to use a printer envelope feeder for printing addresses. Envelope feeders and label printers are only one of several considerations to make when buying a printer. (Specially printers are also available, useful for businesses that do large mailings, that print nothing but envelops and labels.)
