Choosing the most cost efficient and productive plastic card printer ribbon can be challenging.
What’s the difference between a YMCKO and YMCKO-KO card printer color ribbon and what do these acronyms mean?
T or O=protective top coat or overlay
YMC colors are used for full color card printing.
K is a black panel commonly used for text.
The ‘T’ or ‘O’ panel helps prevent card colors from fading, and offers some protection from scratches, dirt, and moisture.
YMCKT-KT is used in double-sided card printers, printing full color on the front and black only on the back with a top coat/overlay on both sides.
