What is the Difference Between YMCKT and YMCKTK Ribbons?

YMCKT vs. YMCKTK Card Samples

Entrust Datacard ID card printers use color ribbons that are sectioned into a number of panels. The panel types vary and can be a little confusing if you’re not aware of the different types. The ribbon panels are represented by letters, most commonly including:

Y = Yellow dye sublimation panel
M = Magenta dye sublimation panel
C = Cyan dye sublimation panel
K = Black resin panel for printing crisp text and barcodes
T = Thin, clear overlay to protect the cards and delay fading

Two of the most common types of ribbons used in a Entrust Datacard direct-to-card printer are YMCKT and YMCKTK. What's the difference? Entrust Datacard YMCKT ribbons print in full color (YMC) and resin black (K) on the front of the card with an overlay (T) to protect the card. If you are using a dual-sided printer, you may print in YMCKT on both sides of the card. Entrust Datacard YMCKTK ribbons, on the other hand, are designed for use in dual-sided printers. They print in full color and resin black on the front of the card with an overlay, plus have an extra K panel for printing in black on the back of cards.

The ribbon that best suits your needs will depend on your printer model, what you’ll be printing on your cards, and how your cards will be used. If you need assistance finding the right Entrust Datacard color ribbon, call an ID Professional at (800) 321-4405.

What is a Half Panel Ribbon?

Depending on your card printing application, you may be able to get more with half. That is, half panel ribbon for your Entrust Datacard printer can save you money!

Entrust Datacard half panel color ribbons include half-size color panels, for printing full-color images on up to half the card surface. Specifically, Entrust Datacard half panel ribbons consists of yellow (Y), magenta (M) and cyan (C) panels that are half the size of the standard YMC ribbon panels, while the black resin (K) and overlay (T) panels are full-size panels.

Entrust Datacard half panel ribbons offer a higher card yield per ribbon and a lower cost per printed card. Entrust Datacard half panel color ribbons are ideal for cards that feature a full-color picture and some black resin text or a barcode, such as student ID cards or employee ID cards. See the SP25+ color ribbon example and sample cards below (based on retail price):

Standard YMCKT Ribbon vs. Half-Panel YMCKT Ribbon

The color panels in half panel ribbons are shorter than standard ribbon panels, resulting in a higher card yield per ribbon and a lower cost per card.
