YMCKT Printer Ribbon

YMCKT Printer Ribbons

This is a print ribbon for single sided ID card printers. The YMCKT abbreviation is used by Datacard and stands for the following:

Y – Yellow
M – Magenta
C – Cyan
K- Monochrome Black
T – Topcoat

The yellow, magenta and cyan panels provide the color for printed card. Each panel provides a part of the specific color needed. Color from each panel is released as it passes under the printhead. The panel colors released combine to produce the desired result. The K panel produces the black color needed for bar codes, text and more. The T is a thin, protective overlay that covers all of the the YMCK colors printed on the card.
