Ribbons for all Materials
We can supply printer ribbons (often also referred to as “foil” or “ink”) for all Thermal Transfer and Near Edge printer brands used in any environment.
Printer ribbons generally fall into three primary categories:
- Wax Ribbons: The cheap and cheerful of the three main variants; these generally suit lightweight, standard applications that involve printing on paper and used in dry straightforward environments.
- Wax Resin Mix: This mix offers more defence against smears, scuffs and UV damage. They are good for most paper and synthetic materials, and are a solid mid-range general purpose solution for most requirements.
- Resin Ribbons: These ribbons offer maximum protection against the elements, chemical processes and rough handling. They’re suitable for all materials and are particularly useful in cases where the image must last in challenging environments or difficult applications
We also hold standard ribbons as stock items so you can get your hands on printer ribbons quickly without the need to stock up to achieve the best unit cost. In the unlikely event that we are unable to supply you with a fit for purpose solution, a custom product can be produced quickly.
Printer ribbons are essential for a range of different applications including compliance labelling, asset tracking and more rugged conditions were a direct image is not suitable.
