Datacard 534000-113 YMCKT short panel ribbons includes half-size YMC panels and full-size black (K) and clear topcoat (T) panels. The yellow (Y), magenta (M), and cyan (C) panels are used 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 layer.
The Datacard 534000-113 short panel ribbon allows for twice the normal ribbon yield than the standard YMCKT ribbon, at a lower cost per card. Short-panel ribbons allow you to print color on up to half the length of a standard CR8030 PVC card, while resin black may be printed on any area of the card.
Ideal use for the Datacard 534000-113 YMCKY short-panel ribbon is when a color image such as an ID picture or logo is needed, along with some black resin printing. Examples of use of the Datacard 534000-113 short-panel ribbons include pre-printed cards, student ID badges, transportation ID cards, employee badges and club membership cards.
