Fargo 84057 Color Ribbon Details
Genuine Fargo 84057 YMCKI color ribbons are used to print single-sided full-color cards with black resin text or barcodes, over the entire card, with an inhibitor (I) panel.
The inhibitor panel allows cards with front-of-card surface foils or back-of-card signature panels to be printed on by preventing the retransfer film from adhering to those areas. The inhibitor panel is mainly used for printing cards with a signature panel or magnetic stripe.
On the front side of the card:
- Y - yellow panel
- M - magenta panel
- C - cyan panel
- K - black resin panel
- I - inhibitor panel (front or back of the card)
Fargo card printers require specialized Fargo ribbons to function properly. To maximize printed card quality and printer durability, use only genuine Fargo 84057 YMCKI ribbons.
Fargo 84057 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 84057 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 84057 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.
