Datacard 552854-105 Color Ribbon Description
Datacard 552854-105 half-panel ribbons include half-size yellow (Y), magenta (M), and cyan (C) panels, for printing full-color images. The full-size resin black (K) panel is used for printing text and barcodes, and the topcoat (T) panel is a thin protective panel that is applied to the card surface.
Datacard 552854-105 half panel ribbons include Y, M, and C half panels and a full-size resin K and clear T panels. A cleaning card and adhesive cleaning sleeve are also included with this ribbon.
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, Datacard 552854-105 half panel ribbons allow twice the normal ribbon yield than a standard YMCKT ribbon, at a lower cost per card.
The illustration below shows the difference between when a standard YMCKT ribbon is appropriate and when a Datacard 552854-105 half-panel ribbon may be the right ribbon for you.
Did you know that Datacard 552854-105 color ribbons have a shelf life?
When stored under proper conditions, Datacard 552854-105 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.
