Zebra YMCKI Ribbon are for both single and double sided cards. The YMC panels are used for the front of the card, whilst both the Black (K) and the Inhibitor (I) panels can be used on both the front and reverse of the card.
The Inhibitor (I) panel allows cards with Foil or Signature Strips to be printed on because the Inhibitor (I) prevents the retransfer film from printing in those areas. The main use of the I Panel is due to signature strip cards as the over laminate will make it difficult to write on.
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.
