Printer Ribbons Advice

Genuine and Compatible Thermal Ribbons for All Major Brands

We have a full range of all Genuie Zebra and Toshiba ribbons as well as compatibles. We also have ribbons for all major brands such as TSC, Citizen and Intermec.

Which Type Do I Need?

Wax ribbons are cheapest type of ribbon. They produce good quality print. Wax ribbons perform best on paper material.

Wax/Resin ribbons produce excellent quality print at all print resolutions. Wax/Resin ribbons work very well on most synthetic and paper materials

Resin ribbons are designed to be highly scratch resistant, chemical and moisture resistant. They produce excellent print quality and are designed for printing on synthetic materials. These are also recommended for high performance printers such as the Zebra Xi4 range.

Which Size?

The maximum ribbon size is dependent on the print width of your printer also ideally the ribbon should be just wider than the media (paper,label etc) that is being printed onto. For example if you are printing onto a 50mm wide label you should use a 64mm wide ribbon. This will reduce the chance of ribbon creasing.

Desktop ribbons should only be used in Desktop Printers as the ribbon space is usually to small to house larger industrial printer ribbons.
