Monochrome printing uses a single color. This is a very cost-effective process for personalizing pre-printed cards.
It stands as the ideal solution for cards that do not require color personal elements such as a picture.
Save money with the Evolis' Ribbon saver feature
When you use an Evolis monochrome ribbon and thanks to our ribbon saver feature, you significantly increase the number of cards to be printed with one single ribbon.
Indeed, the surface used on the ribbon corresponds to the real printed surface plus a 7 mm jump and not the surface of a whole card:
- Monochrome ribbon: Black-overley, Black, Blue, Red, Green, White, Metallic Gold and Metallic Silver
- Number of prints per roll: up to 1000
- Cards lifespan: up to 3 years
- Printers concerned: Quantum, Tattoo, Dualys, Pebble, Securion, KM500B - KM2000B
The color ribbon is polyethylene terephthalate (PET) with thin layer of specialized coating. The concentration of colorant is very low and they are insoluble in water. In the printing process they only diffuse at temperature above 50°C.
