* Zebra recommends using ribbon that is at least as wide as the media to protect the printhead from wear.
** Depending on your application, you may be able to use ribbon narrower than 2 in. (51 mm), as long as the ribbon is wider than the media being used. To use a narrower ribbon, test the ribbon’s performance with your media to assure that you get the desired results
