IDP 659378 Color Ribbon Details
Genuine IDP 659378 half-panel HYMCKO ribbons are for dual-sided printing and include a half-size YMC color panel, one (1) full-size resin black panel for printing text and barcodes, and one (1) clear, protective overlay panel.
Half-panel ribbons allow you to print color on up to half the length of standard CR80-size PVC cards; while resin black may be printed on any area of the card. If you will only be printing in full-color on part of your cards, IDP 659378 half-panel ribbons provide twice the print yield than a standard YMCKO ribbon.
The IDP 659378 ribbon kit includes a cleaning roller to ensure optimal daily printing and is compatible for use with IDP Smart-51S, Smart-51D, and Smart-51L ID card printers.
IDP card printers require specialized IDP ribbons to function properly. To maximize printed card quality and printer durability, use only genuine IDP 659378 ribbons.
Did you know that IDP 659378 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 IDP reseller, ID Zone guarantees that our genuine IDP 659378 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.
