Fargo 44230 Color Ribbon Details

Genuine Fargo 44230 YMCKO color ribbons are used to print single-sided full-color cards with black resin text or barcodes and a clear overlay (protective layer) over the entire card.

On the front side of the card:

  • Y - yellow panel
  • M - magenta panel
  • C - cyan panel
  • K - black resin panel
  • O - overlay panel

Fargo card printers require specialized Fargo ribbons to function properly. To maximize printed card quality and printer durability, use only genuine Fargo 44230 YMCKO ribbons.

Fargo 44230 ribbon kits include a cleaning roller to ensure optimal daily printing. Fargo recommends cleaning your printer after each ribbon change.

Did you know that Fargo 44230 ribbons have a shelf life?

Dye-sublimation ribbons typically have a shelf life of up to one year, when stored under the proper conditions. Ribbons that are not properly stored, and are more than one year old, will not print optimally and will likely end up costing more in maintenance and more money in reprinting cards.

As an authorized Fargo reseller, ID Zone guarantees that our genuine Fargo 44230 color ribbons are stored properly and are always 'fresh'.

How to find the shelf life of your color ribbon?

Look for the manufactured date on the sticker on the box, which is above the part number. If this date is over one year in the past, then your ribbon is past its shelf life.

Comments aboutFargo 44230 Color Ribbon - YMCKO - 250 prints:

It is used everyday to print membership cards for our fitness room. Sometimes we have technical difficulties but we can usually figure them out and get it to work. All of our 6 parks use this system.

Comments aboutFargo 44230 Color Ribbon - YMCKO - 250 prints:

One of the ribbons that we purchased snapped. When I called to get a new one they told me to put Scotch tape and tape together. I didnt think that this would work, but it did. Im not sure if this is a good thing that there is a quick fix, or a bad thing that this happends. But from what the person on the phone said, it is very common.
