A printer ribbon is not included because it is able to print with different types.

Choose the ribbon type and matching label stock type to suit your application.

Wax ribbons Wax ribbons are the lowest cost choice, they are ideal for general label applications such as address labels. However, wax ribbons are the softest ribbons making them vulnerable to smudging and scratching.
Wax/resin ribbons Wax/resin ribbons are suitable if you are printing onto semi-gloss paper or synthetic labels, they combine wax and resin to make the ribbons smudge and smear resistant.
Resin ribbons Resin ribbons are the hardest type of ribbon, being scratch and chemical resistant. Resin ribbons are the best choice for printing onto synthetic labels which will be going into harsh environments where the print needs to be resistant against scratching, smearing, liquid, chemicals and extreme temperatures. 


This printer comes with Honeywell's version of BarTender® UltraLite Label Making Software.  The BarTender UltraLite Edition is free to use. There will be a cost If you want to unlock all features, because this application is developed by a third party.
