Genuine Datacard 534000-002 YMCKT color ribbon kit. Datacard recommends using authentic Datacard supplies to ensure the best performance from your ID card printer.

Datacard 534000-002 YMCKT ribbons are used for printing a combination of full-color images and one-color text or barcodes, and feature an Earth-friendly biodegradable core.

YMCKT ribbons consist of yellow (Y), magenta (M) and cyan (C) panels for printing a full spectrum of colors by combining the colors using varying degrees of heat. The K panel is a black resin panel, typically used for printing text and barcodes and the T panel is a thin, clear protective overlay.

ID Wholesaler offers a low price guarantee on the Datacard 534000-002 YMCKT ribbon.

Note: The Datacard 534000-002 replaces the Datacard 552854-204 ribbon.

Did you know that Datacard 534000-002 color ribbons have a shelf life?

When stored under proper conditions, Datacard 534000-002 dye-sublimation color ribbons typically have a shelf life of up to one year. Ribbons that are more than a year old, and improperly stored, will not print optimally and will likely end up costing more money and time in maintenance and in reprinting cards.

ID Wholesaler is an authorized Datacard reseller specializing in ID card printing products. We guarantee that our 534000-002 ribbons are genuine Datacard ribbons, are properly stored, and are always 'fresh'.

Comments about Datacard 534000-002 Color Ribbon & Cleaning Kit - YMCKT - 250 prints:

My company uses the product to print company badges, we have also used it for user conferences. This product has been a rock for us, the only negative is every so often I will print a badge and it will come out too light and will need to reprint. Overall I would buy this again.
