Fargo 84516 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.
Fargo 84516 half panel ribbons include Y, M, and C half panels and a full-size resin K panel.
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 84516 half panel ribbons allow twice the normal ribbon yield than a standard YMCK ribbon, at a lower cost per card.
The illustration below shows the difference between when a standard YMCK ribbon is appropriate and when a Fargo 84516 half-panel ribbon may be the right ribbon for you.
