How often should I clean my printhead?
Clean your printhead using Isowipes (item #2900241) available from our online Shop. This should be done each time you change ribbon or label rolls (as a minimum) or if you are experiencing print quality issues.
What are the different types of thermal transfer ribbons?
insignia stocks three types of carbon ribbons which come in a range of different formulations including Wax, Resin or a combination to make your label more economical, durable or provide a finer image on print.
All insignia ribbons meet strict quality specifications for printer manufacturers and have a unique coating on the back of the ribbon to protect your printhead. Each of these ribbon types share their own unique benefits suited to different applications. Learn more
What is carbon-side-in and carbon-side-out?
Thermal ribbon rolls are available with the carbon-side facing in or carbon facing out. This terminology refers to the side of the ribbon that the ink sits on. You can identify which side is coated, as you will notice one side of the ribbon is shiny and one side has a more matte finish, the duller side is the side the ink sits on.
This is the side that should face the labels when you place the thermal transfer ribbon on the ribbon spindle.
Depending on the specific thermal transfer printer that you have, you will use either one or the other. The only difference between carbon side in and carbon side out is the direction that the thermal ribbon is wound. Different printer makes and models will specify which style of ribbon they require.
For more information on which ribbon is suitable for your printer make and model, visit our website's ribbon page.
How do I ensure longevity of my thermal ribbon stock?
Storing your ribbon stock in the ideal environmental conditions will ensure the longevity of your Thermal ribbons. When stored indoors at room temperature away from high humidity and direct sunlight your thermal ribbons can last around 24 months.
