The next generation in near edge thermal transfer overprinting - our wax/resin ribbon delivers faster performance with blacker and more durable prints. With print speeds up to 40 IPS, our near edge ribbons are an affordable alternative to the overpriced OEM ribbons.

Our ribbons are ISEGA certified and approved for direct and indirect food contact under FDA regulations 21 CFR 175. Please call us for details.

Our flat head thermal ribbons (label printers) feature Clean Start®, a revolutionary printhead cleaner built right into your barcode ribbon. It removes debris before it builds up on the printhead, extending its life. If you've ever had to replace a printhead, you know they aren't cheap!!
