With a focus on efficiency Evolis has released the Half Panel ribbon. Reducing cost per print and reducing landfill. The Half-Panel YMCKO Colour Ribbon is a dye sublimation ribbon which has the same ink specifications as the Standard or Full Panel YMCKO Colour Ribbon used in plastic PVC ID card printing. The only difference between the Standard YMCKO Ribbon and the Half- Panel YMCKO Ribbon consists in the length of the Yellow, Magenta and Cyan panels which, for the Half-Panel, is half the length of the Standard Panel YMCKO Ribbon (see comparison below).
