Evolis Card Printers – How to Install a Print Ribbon


When putting a new ribbon into your Evolis ID card printer, it is important to install the correct ribbon in the right format to make card printing easy.

Make sure that you have the correct ribbon for the card you will be printing. A full color single side print will require a YMCKO print ribbon. A full color dual sided card will need a YMCKOK print ribbon to print both front and back of the card in the single pass. The printer used must also be able to print dual sided cards.

First, gently pull the adhesive tape holding the ribbon off.

Open the printer cover and place the ribbon correctly into the ribbon spindle. Follow the pictured instructions on the printer to determine what spool goes into each spindle.

Close the printer lid. The ribbon will automatically synchronize and be ready to print a card.
