Genuine Zebra Color Ribbons for the ZXP Series 3 ID Card Printer from an Authorized Zebra Reseller.

ID card printers typically use ribbons that are made up of different panels for printing colors and providing other functions. Panels are typically identified by a letter or two with the most common dye sublimation panels being:

  • Y = Yellow dye sublimation panel
  • M = Magenta dye sublimation panel
  • C = Cyan dye sublimation panel
  • K = Black resin panel (K = Key = Black)
  • O = Overlay panel
The YMC (Yellow, Magento and Cyan) panels are used together for full-color printing and composite black text. For crisp, black text (e.g. for printing barcodes), then a ribbon with a Black resin (K) panel can be used.Other common panels are
  • O = Overlay (aka Overcoat) panel for providing a protective finish for added card protection
  • T = Topcoat (same as an Overlay panel)
  • Uv = Ultraviolet panel for printing text and graphics that can only be seen under an ultra-violet light
  • I = Inhibitor panel for restricting where text and graphics can be printed

Another type of ribbon is a "Half-Panel Color Ribbon" where the Yellow, Yellow, Magenta and Cyan panels are half the size of the regular panels but the other panels are full-sized panels (e.g. a "ymcKO" ribbon). These ribbons can provide cost-savings where color is only required on up to half the card with black available for any part of the card).

Zebra ix Series KdO Monochrome Ribbon, 500 Images/Ribbon. For use with Zebra ZXP 3 ID Card Printers.

The black d stands for dye sublimation so two different printing processes are used with KdO ribbonsdye sublimation for the black panel and thermal transfer for the clear overlay. The dye sublimation process allows you to print on a grey scale, creating shading and shadows and are great for printing black and white images or logos. The Overlay panel provides a thin layer of clear protection which helps with fading and normal wear and tear.

If you are printing barcodes, we recommend the use of a KrO ribbon which prints lines and text more crisply (without any shadows).
