Have Questions about Zebra Monochrome Ribbons? We Have Answers!

How Do I Know which Monochrome Ribbon to use in my Zebra Printer?

There are two ways to find manufacturer-approved Zebra monochrome ribbons for your specific printer model.

  1. Use the Printer Supplies Finder at the top of this page. To quickly and easily find monochrome ribbons for your Zebra ID card printer, simply select your Zebra printer model. It’s a great tool to bookmark for future ordering!
  2. Use the "Narrow Your Results By" options in the left column to drill down by printer model, ribbon type, and more!

As always, if you have any difficulty finding the Zebra monochrome ribbon you need, you can also call an ID Professional at (800) 321-4405 x2.

Why Would I Use a Monochrome Ribbon?

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 Zebra 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 red, blue, white, gold, silver, and more!

What Type of Monochrome Ribbon is Best for my Application?

While all Zebra 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 a Zebra Black “K” resin ribbon or a Black "KrO" resin ribbon with overlay. 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 "KrO" Resin with Overlay Barcodes and crisp text (added durability and fade resistance)
Black "KdO" Dye Sub with Overlay Photos (added durability and fade resistance)
