Fargo 86212 Color Ribbon Details

Genuine Fargo 86212 YMCFKO 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. The fluorescing F panel allows for grayscale text or images, only visible with ultraviolet (UV) light, to be printed.

On the front side of the card:

  • Y - yellow panel
  • M - magenta panel
  • C - cyan panel
  • F - fluorescing 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 86212 YMCFKO ribbons.

Fargo 86212 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 86212 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 86212 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.
