New Zebra Ribbons Launched - 1600 Wax economy

5 June 2019

We are delighted to be increasing our offering of Zebra Wax thermal transfer ribbons to include the new 1600 ribbon to our collection.

Wax ribbons account for around 75% of total ribbon usage through Zebra printers and offer an economical printing solution on coated and uncoated paper labels and tags therefore providing a further economy option to our customers was incredibly important. 

The new 1600 thermal transfer ribbon from Zebra is an economy wax ribbon suitable for printing on most uncoated and coated labels and tags. Available for industrial printers in 450m offering good print quality at speeds of up to 254mm/sec (10ips) and 152mm/sec (6ips) for rotated barcodes. This is Zebra's competitively priced wax ribbon solution against low-cost competition. 

The ribbon provides customers with a cheaper alternative to the Zebra wax ribbons that we already know (2100, 2300) while ensuring that they are still able to utilise the quality of a Zebra ribbon. 

The new ribbons are suitable for the majority of general-purpose labelling such as shipping and receiving, inventory tracking, warehouse and distribution. Given that they are wax ribbons they are best used indoor with optimum temperature and no exposure to water or extreme lighting.
