Perhaps the most important thing inside your Teac P-55 Hi-Resolution thermal printer is the black ribbon. You can’t print anything without that deep, rich black color. So when your Hi-Resolution printing is running out of printing steam, it’s probably about time you got a new black ribbon. It’s time to pick up the Teac P-55 Thermal Black Ribbon. This black ribbon is sold individually. That might not seem like much at first, but keep in mind that each ribbon can produce up to 2000 prints! That’s a tremendous amount of printing power packed in just one black ribbon. Transfer ribbons for the black ribbons are sold separately. For the black ribbon to operate at peak efficiency, you’ll need 4 transfer rolls. The rolls are sold in pairs (their Part Number is A03009).
