Flathead Outside Wound Ribbons

Flathead or traditional printers have the print head laying flat holding the ribbon level with the label. In comparison to near edge printers these are often slower but new models offer higher print resolutions.

Whilst using a flathead ribbon on a near edge printer won’t break the printer you will have to turn up the printheads heat settings excessively to achieve usable results, which will damage and break the print head.

Zebra, Avery, Markem, Carl Valentin, Toshiba TEC, Mectec, Domino, Printronix, TSC, Godex, Citizen all have flathead printers that take outside wound ribbons.
