Thermal Transfer Ribbons

Thermal Transfer Ribbons

In thermal transfer printing, the printer, ribbon and substrate work together as a printing system. The technology is simple and works by melting ink from the ribbon onto the receiver/substrate. Thermal transfer printing is reliable and low maintenance, and can be applied in a wide range of on-demand printing applications. IIMAK ribbons are the only ribbons to feature Clean Start®, the patented printhead cleaner built in the ribbon.

Clean Start® Ribbons Save You Time and Money

It’s true. CleanStart® is an exclusive printhead cleaner that is built right into your ribbon and is available at no extra cost. Exclusive to IIMAK, Clean Start® is an innovative printhead cleaner that's built right into the beginning of the ribbon. Simply pull Clean Start® through the locked printhead at the start of a new ribbon. Doing so removes debris before it builds up on the printhead, assuring printed images, text, and barcodes are crisp and clear. All it takes is just 6 seconds and you’ll be on your way to longer printhead life, more readable scans and peak image quality. What does this mean to you? BIG savings to your bottom line.
