Evolis R3013 half-panel ribbons include half-size yellow, magenta, and cyan panels, for full-color images. The full-size black (K) panel is used for printing text and barcodes, and the overlay or varnish panel is a thin protective panel that is applied to the card surface.
Evolis R3013 half panel ribbons include Y, M, and C half panels and a full-size resin K and clear O panels.
Half-panel ribbons allow you to print color on up to half the length of a standard CR80-size PVC card, while resin black may be printed on any area of the card. If you’re only printing full-color on part of your cards, Evolis R3013 half panel ribbons allow twice the normal ribbon yield than a standard YMCKO ribbon, at a lower cost per card.
