* 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 51 mm (2 in.), 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.
