The Magicard MA100YMCKO colour ribbon is designed to produce expert image quality outputs on your card using Magicard card printing systems and is perfect for businesses printing a small quantity of cards.
The color ribbon is polyethylene terephthalate (PET) with thin layer of specialized coating. The concentration of colorant is very low and they are insoluble in water. In the printing process they only diffuse at temperature above 50°C.
To get the most out of this product, we recommend using the ribbon within one year and storing it in a cool, dry environment absent dust and direct sunlight which can damage the panels from heat exposure. The precise lifespan of ribbon supplies will vary by manufacturer and model, but as a rule of thumb most manufacturers estimate that ribbons have a lifespan of up to one year.Once a ribbon has expired, the panels will start tearing during the printing process.
A YMCKO colour ribbon is designed to print full-colour cards. In addition to the standard colours [Yellow, Magenta, Cyan and Black], the YMCKO ribbon also includes a protective varnish [Overlay] panel that is used to protect the elements on the card post-printing to retain a high quality professional image which can be used for up to 3 years. This process makes it possible to optimize the quality of printed images and logos with a 300 DPI resolution that guarantees expert presentation on single-sided or dual-sided cards.
Choose a YMCKO ribbon if you wish to print on a single or dual-sided card that requires full colour presentation. The YMCKO image below shows a visual representation of the ribbon that is capable of producing vibrant images. The panels are separated by YMC (Yellow, Magenta, Cyan), shown below.
It includes the monochrome black resin panel denoted by the letter (K) and is used for printing sharp and accurate text or barcodes and it includes a final panel called the Overlay for the ribbon which is denoted by the letter (O). This transparent overlay is a protective varnish that is applied onto the ID cards which helps retain a high quality image.
