Half-panel ribbons allow you to print color on up to half the length of a standard CR80-size PVC card, while resin black may be printed on any area of the card. If you're only printing full-color on part of your cards, Fargo 45714 half panel ribbons allow twice the normal ribbon yield than a standard YMCKO ribbon, at a lower cost per card.
