What is the Difference Between YMCKO and YMCKOK Ribbons?

What is a Half Panel Ribbon?

Depending on your card printing application, you may be able to get more accomplished with half. In other words, sometimes using a half panel ribbon with your Fargo printer can save you money!

Fargo half panel color ribbons include half-size color panels, for printing full-color images on up to half the card surface. Specifically, Fargo 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 (O) panels are full-size panels.

Fargo half panel ribbons offer a higher card yield per ribbon and a lower cost per printed card. Fargo 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 DTC1000 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.
