IDP 659380 Color Ribbon Details
Genuine IDP 659380 YMCFKO ribbons are used to print a combination of full-color images and single-color (monochrome) text or barcodes.
The IDP 659380 color ribbon consists of yellow (Y), magenta (M), and cyan (C) panels that produce the full color spectrum by applying varying degrees of heat; a flourescing "F" panel for producing text and/or images in grayscale that are invisible unless viewed beneath an ultraviolet (UV) light; and a black resin "K" panel for printing text and barcodes to the backside of your cards.
The IDP 659380 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 659380 ribbons.
Did you know that IDP 659380 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 659380 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.
