Advances in ribbon technologies across all brands have enabled sharp, crisp text and impeccable color images on plastic ID cards, along with an array of user-friendly features.

For example, Zebra ribbons now offer TrueColours® Multi-panel ribbons, which deliver photo-realistic images and the sharpest text and bar codes around. Zebra's patented technology protects the printer's print head by minimizing ink debris, while protecting cards from dye migration and abrasions.

Other advances include high-tech features like RFID Technology (Radio Frequency Identification), which guarantees proper ribbon selection, error-free alignment, and monitoring of remaining ribbon capacity. For example, the High-Trust RFID line from Evolis ribbons adds a protective overcoat layer to protect cards from abrasions, wear, and tear for up to three years.

With all the available ribbon choices, choosing the right ribbon for the job can be confusing. ID Card Group regularly assists customers over the phone or via email with questions - and has published an informative blog post: YMCKO, YMCK, YMCKOK - How to Choose the Right Card Printer Ribbon. The popular resource helps customers select the right ribbon for the print job. It reviews the top five considerations when choosing the right ribbon as well as the following four ribbon types:

Single-Color Monochrome - Monochrome ribbons come in an array of colors and can print single-color images and text. They are ideal for personalizing a pre-printed plastic card, adding detailed information to the back of a card, or creating layered monochrome images on a colored plastic card.

YMCK - Full, four-color ribbons print vibrant full-color images and black text on a single side per pass, making them ideal for simple, single-sided plastic cards with ID photos and text.

YMCKO - Four-color with overlay. These ribbons include a clear coating overlay to provide extra protection from tampering or wear and tear. YMCKO ribbons are for single-sided printing only, but are common choices for cards that are handled often or contain secure information.

YMCKOK - Four-color with Black on back. YMCKOK is a full-color ribbon that can also print black text or bar codes on the back of plastic cards. YMCKOK dual-sided printing capacity is often used for membership cards, loyalty cards, student IDs, event passes and tickets.

Every ID printer ribbon is backed by ID Card Group's low price guarantee, as are all products and brands in the store.
