General Advice:

For most common matt and gloss paper labels the B110AX ribbon will work perfectly.

If you are printing on synthetic stocks such as Primax or polyprop labels the B110C resin ribbon offers the best result with a hard to scratch or smudge print quality.

Depending on the model of your printer all you need to adjust (if possible) are:

  • the print speed
  • the burn temperature
  • print head pressure and balance

A slower print speed always produces a better result.

Next, adjusting the burn temperature from the lowest setting gradually to a higher setting. You should see a faint print improve to a clear, crisp print. Once you go over a certain point, you will notice the print start to look 'burnt' and become unclear again. Also, if you have tried a very high or maximum temperature you can even burn holes in the ribbon and the print will look smudged.

If you burn holes in the ribbon clean the print head before trying again since residue may be left and this will affect the quality of any future labels printed.

Finally, if you have ribbon creasing issues try adjusting the print head pressure and balance (if possible). Refer to the support section for the particular Zebra printer model you have for more information.
