Why does my ribbon crease when printing labels?

Ribbon creasing is more common when the ribbon being used is much wider than the label it is printing i.e. 134mm width ribbon printing a 55mm wide label.

The ribbon needs to be tight when moving across the label otherwise the creasing will cause printing errors such as specs on the label. It also more cost effective to use a narrower ribbon when there are smaller widths in the range.
