How to Get Your Zebra Printer to Work with Light Colored Ribbons

Posted October 8, 2012

Thermal label printers may only be able to print with a single color ribbon roll but this doesn’t mean you’re stuck with black only.  A variety of colored ribbons are available for almost every printer model in wax, wax/resin, or resin rolls.  However, when you start using lighter colors of ribbon (red, yellow, pink), the printer will sometimes have difficulty sensing that a ribbon is installed properly.

Understanding the Value of Genuine Printer Supplies

Posted October 1, 2012

Before purchasing supplies, buyers would do well to remember the words of Warren Buffett, a man who knows a little about buying smartly: “price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” The point is simple: it’s not the initial purchase price that ultimately matters, but rather the value delivered by the purchase. This is particularly true when it comes to printer supplies.

Genuine printer supplies are designed by OEM engineers and qualified with the printer itself as part of the research and product development process. They are developed to precise specifications, so that they perform with the printer at a consistently high level, time and time again.

Only genuine supplies:

  • Are engineered in conjunction with the printer for superior quality, performance, and reliability.
  • Fully protect your hardware investment.
  • Keep warranties beyond reproach.
  • Benefit from an OEM’s years of operational experience in the market, and with specific applications.
  • Mitigate risk of downtime due to printer failure.

Genuine supplies typically bear the imprint or endorsement of the OEM clearly on the packaging. Consulting the OEM or a recognized OEM channel partner is a sure way of verifying whether the supply you have in hand is genuine.
