The big industry secret is that you can save money buying Non-Branded Thermal Transfer Ribbons! There are two types of thermal transfer ribbons on the market today. The first is Branded, which is sold by the printer manufacturer and non-branded. The printer manufacturers do not make their own ribbons. They are contracted by companies who specialize in manufacturing ribbons. There are currently about 6 major players in the world today who manufacture ribbons. These companies make the ribbons and put the Zebra, Datamax, Sato, Printronix and Intermec logo’s/names on them, branded, just to name a few.
The same companies that make the branded ribbons make the second type – non-branded ribbons – as well. Both ribbons are made to OEM specifications and work equally as well. The main benefit to you as a customer is that you can see 20 to 40% cost savings using the non-branded ribbons over the branded ribbons. We have been providing both types of ribbons to our customers for over 25 years. We are so confident in these non-branded ribbons that we offer the same printhead guarantee as we do on the branded ribbons.
You may ask, why would a company choose the branded over the non-branded? Most companies do not realize that they have a choice or have not been properly educated in the benefits of using a non-branded ribbon.
