Businesses in Canada love DuraFast's Zebra thermal ribbons. Not only is it convenient to buy Zebra ribbons online, we have a huge selection of high-quality ribbons for mobile, desktop, and industrial thermal transfer Zebra printers.
How to Select the Right Zebra Ribbons for Your Business Needs
The first step in selecting a ribbon for your Zebra thermal transfer printer is to determine the ribbon type. Since ribbons come in different formulations, it's important to have the right ribbon type for your print job.
- Zebra Wax ribbons are ideal for printing general-purpose matte paper shipping labels, barcode labels, and retail tags. They produce black images. The wax bonds with the matte paper label material, resulting in a durable print.
- Zebra Resin ribbons are perfect for printing synthetic labels that will be exposed to harsh environmental conditions, alcohol, such as extreme temperatures or moisture. They also produce high-quality images on a wide variety of polyester and polypropylene label materials.
- Zebra Wax/resin ribbons fall in between, offering better durability than a wax ribbon and a lower price than a resin ribbon. These are great with color labels, polyester and polypropylene labels and Valeron labels & tags.
Once you know the type, you'll need to be sure the ribbon physically fits your printer. You’ll need to know the core size as the maximum ribbon width and length. Zebra industrial printers, for example, can accept large Zebra industrial thermal ribbon rolls with one inch cores while desktop models will generally take smaller half inch core based rolls. Zebra mobile thermal ribbons are the smallest of all due to the limited size of the device.
Thermal transfer ribbons are available in various widths to match your printer's specifications. That said, if you have a 4-inch desktop label printer, you do not necessarily need a roll of 4-inch Zebra desktop thermal ribbons. For example, if you will be printing 1.5-inch labels and barcodes on this printer, it's more economical to purchase a narrower roll of Zebra ribbon, such as the 2-inch width.
The length of the ribbon affects not only the number of labels you can print at one time but also the life of the ribbon. The longer the ribbon, the more prints it can produce before it must be replaced. It's important to select a width and length that meets both your business needs and your budget constraints.
After you've determined the type and size of ribbon, it's time to choose the color. Black is the most common choice, but other colors are available for specific applications. For example, DuraFast Label Company sells white thermal transfer ribbons for printing white text on dark-colored materials. We also have red, green, blue, silver, and gold Zebra thermal ribbons.
