Monochrome ribbons (1-color ribbons) are used in ID card printers to print a single color on PVC or PVC-PET composite cards, a cost-effective process for personalizing cards.
Printing with monochrome ribbons is an ideal solution for cards that do not require color personal elements such as a picture. Monochrome ribbons are used mainly for basic text, numbers and one-color line art.
Note: Resin ribbons are needed to print readable barcodes. Monochrome ribbons are not designed for bar code printing.
