IDP 659378 half-color ribbon consists of half-size yellow (Y), magenta (M), and cyan (C) panels that combine to print a full spectrum of colors made possible by varying degrees of heat. The full-size resin black (K) panel is used for printing text and barcodes, and the overlay (O) panel is a thin protective panel that is applied to the card surface.
The ribbon comes in a kit that includes a cleaning roller made for a Smart-51 card printer.
Half-panel ribbons can be used when the card design only requires full-color on half of a standard CR80 PVC card. Use the resin black panel for the the second half of the card, or over the entire surface. Since only half the card is treated with full-color, IDP 659378 half panel ribbons allow twice the normal ribbon yield than a standard YMCKO ribbon.
You can shop with confidence at ID Wholesaler, knowing you will always receive a genuine IDP 659378 ribbon - we never sell generic, imitation ribbons. Be aware that using non-IDP certified supplies can void your printer's warranty.
Did you know that IDP 659378 color ribbons have a shelf life?
When stored under proper conditions, IDP 659378 dye-sublimation color ribbons typically have a shelf life of up to one year. Ribbons that are more than a year old, or improperly stored, may not print properly. Further, presumed savings result in more money spent to cover purchases for the correct ribbons and the reprinting of replacement cards.
