Why Would I Use a Monochrome Ribbon?

PVC Cards

Monochrome ribbons are a cost-effective solution when printing in one-color is an option. They are most often used in conjunction with pre-printed cards. Many pre-printed cards feature a full-color, branded design. The monochrome ribbon is used to personalize the card with one-color text or images.

Monochrome ribbons are also often used with colored PVC cards. Colored cards are an easy way to classify groups of cardholders or to distinguish employees from visitors.

When choosing a one-color IDP ribbon to use on a pre-printed or colored card, carefully choose a ribbon color that will stand up against the pre-printed design or card color. While black is the most popular type of monochrome ribbon, a variety of colors are also available, including white, blue, red, silver, and gold.

What Type of Monochrome Ribbon is Best for My Application?

While all IDP monochrome ribbons are one-color, not all are suited for the same application. There are a few types of monochrome ribbons. If you will be printing barcodes, you’ll need to choose an IDP Black “K” Resin ribbon. Resin has a more concentrated formulation that is easily read by barcode readers. Most barcode readers require that the black barcode be printed on a solid white background.

The "O" panel that is included with some monochrome ribbons is a clear overlay panel, which provides basic protection from wear and fading, helping to extend card life.

If you will be printing photos on your cards, you may want to consider using a full-color ribbon. One-color ribbons can print images and photos, but color ribbons produce that highest quality photo.

Use the chart below to help choose the best type of monochrome ribbon for your application:

Ribbon Type Application
Black "K" Resin Barcodes and crisp text
Black "KO" Resin Barcode and crisp text (added durability and fade resistance)
IDW-Handshake--blue
