Here at eXpress badging we carry a complete selection of Fargo card printer consumable supplies, including Fargo overlaminate films and a wide range of Fargo Printer ribbons and SmartLoad ribbon cartridges. Fargo DTC color ribbon units are available here for use in Fargo DTC-1250, DTC-4250, DTC-4500 and also HDP-5000 printers. The Fargo ID printer ribbon you choose should be compatible with your machine and also with the type of printing you'll be doing with that machine. Fargo ribbon cartridge models that fit the Fargo DTC-1000 printer, for example, include single-color black ribbon cartridges (K-designation), four-color with clear overlay (YMCKO-designation), and four-color with overlay and dual-sided card printing capability (YMCKOK-designation).
The four colors in a YMCK-designated ribbon are yellow, magenta, cyan and black. When an "O" is also in the designation it stands for "overlay." Adding this overlay to your cards will remove the need to have them laminated and will add years to their life expectancy because of the protection provided by the clear overlay.
