Datacard 534000-004 YMCKT short panel ribbons are used for printing a combination of full-color images and one-color text or barcodes, and feature an Earth-friendly biodegradable core.
Short panel YMCKT ribbons consist of short yellow (Y), magenta (M) and cyan (C) panels for printing a full spectrum of colors by combining the colors using varying degrees of heat. The K panel is a black resin panel, typically used for printing text and barcodes and the T panel is a thin, clear protective overlay.
Datacard 534000-004 short panel ribbons allow approximately twice the normal ribbon yield than a standard YMCKT ribbon, at a lower cost per card. Short panel ribbons allow you to print color (YMC) on half the length of a standard CR8030 card, while the resin black (K) and topcoat (T) panels may be printing on any area of the card.
