Available in 3 types which match with different label materials. Wax for paper, wax - resin for polypropylene, and resin for polyester labels.


Ribbons can be slit to any width but common widths ar 55mm, 60mm, 76mm, 104mm, 110mm.


Typically ribbons are sized in length to fit into specific printer ranges.


  • The Zebra Desktop printers take a ribbon that is 70 or 74mm long with a small 13mm Core.

  • The usual desktop industrial printers such as the Zebra Zt220 and S4M take a 360M ribbon - the Core size is usually 25mm.

  • Some higher end printers such as the industrial Zebra XiIII range and the Intermec PM4i range take 450M long ribbons, also on a 25mm core.


Divide the length of the label and its gap into the length of the ribbon to establish the number of labels that you can print with a single ribbon.
