Polaroid recommends cleaning your printer after each ribbon change.

Did you know that Polaroid 3-4500-1 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 Polaroid reseller, ID Zone guarantees that our genuine Polaroid 3-4500-1 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.
