Are you scanning the barcodes and how long do they stay scanable? Is a few months less than a year or a little more? Are you using a thermal transfer (has a ribbon that transfers to the stock) or direct thermal (burns directly on to the stock)?

We print barcodes and labels with a thermal printer. I love my little<br>printer, but the printing fades with exposure to ultraviolet light.
