What determines the price of ribbon?

Ribbon price varies according the ribbon type, size, volume and colour:

Type: this is determined by your application

  • wax: most common, lowest cost, used on uncoated paper labels and tags
  • wax/resin: more expensive, usually used on coated paper and coated tags
  • resin: highest cost, used on polyester labels and tags for maximum durability

Size: ribbon rolls with more square metres of material (width x length) cost proportionally more than ribbons with fewer square metres of material.

Volume: price can depend on the volume being bought (e.g., when group deals are offered.)

Colour: black is always the lowest price, and colours are more expensive.
