HID FARGO 084051 – HDP Color Ribbon YMCK


Important Notice:


HID Global will be upgrading the RFID communication technology utilized by some print ribbon and overlaminate consumables used in HID FARGO Card Printer/Encoders beginning in October 2013. This technology upgrade will include the product sold here.  After HID implements the new technology, most in-field printers and laminators that were manufactured before mid-2010 will require a firmware update to ensure compatibility with the new consumables technology. – See more at: http://www.horizonsidsystems.com/products/1023-fargo-084051-hdp-color-ribbon-ymck-500-images.aspx#sthash.2UJ9Dxn7.dpuf


Product Description

This is a YMCK dye film only. The HID FARGO HDP 5000 is a reverse transfer ribbon which requires a separate retransfer ribbon to print on the cards. This color ribbon will print 500 cards on one side, 250 cards with color on front and black only on the back or 250 cards with color on both sides. This is a YMCK ribbon, which means it has a Yellow panel, Magenta panel, Cyan panel, Resin Black panel and then starts again with the Yellow panel. This ribbon uses a resin black panel to print black where needed. This is the most effective for barcodes, or if the customer wants the black to stand out. A YMCK ribbon will still only print 250 two-sided cards, even if only black is printed on the back side of the card. If you wish to print color on the front and black only back of the cards look for a YMCKK ribbon such as the FARGO 84052 dye film. This ribbon is for a retransfer printer, which initially prints the image onto a film ribbon, then transfers the film onto the card. For this reason, there is no overlay panel on the dye film ribbon because the transfer film acts as an overlay panel. – See more at: http://www.horizonsidsystems.com/products/1023-fargo-084051-hdp-color-ribbon-ymck-500-images.aspx#sthash.2UJ9Dxn7.dpuf
