New Line Matrix Ribbon Family Gives Customers Choices to Suit Budget and Print Volumes

Ribbons Produce Sharp High-Contrast Bar Codes and Text and Offer Lowest Cost per Page, Darkest Print and Longest Life

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - December 7, 2009) - Printronix, Inc., a leading industrial and business printing solutions manufacturer, is expanding its offering of highly reliable line matrix printing ribbons to give P7000 users the lowest cost per page, darkest print and longest life. These ribbons contain the necessary ingredients to be read by infrared OCR and bar code scanners, and produce sharp high-contrast bar codes and text. Priced to match customers' print volume and budget, the new ribbon packages offer more options for cost-effective purchasing.

"We always are looking for innovative ways to give our print technology an elevated competitive advantage and business value," said Jim McWilson, senior vice president worldwide sales and marketing, Printronix. "The new family of ribbons for our flagship line matrix product gives our customers the option to purchase ribbons to match printing processes and volumes. We now have options for purchasing ribbons in packs of six or 12 in addition to singles."

The new family of ribbons offers three options for character yields, including:

-- Standard capacity - These ribbons offer a low purchase price per ribbon plus the convenience of ordering in smaller quantities for moderate use requirements. This ribbon is ideal for average use customers in banking, retail, logistics and other distributed printing environments.

-- Ultra Capacity - This ribbon has been the gold standard for years and continues to offer the same benefits as before. It is a workhorse solution for most report and label printing applications.

-- Ultra capacity plus - These ribbons offer the lowest total cost of printing, longest ribbon life and fewest user interventions. This ribbon is designed for higher-use customers in manufacturing, back office applications and any application using high-volume batch printing.


The new family of ribbons for the P7000 line matrix printers is available immediately for order and delivery in the Americas. The standard capacity and ultra capacity plus ribbons will be available in Europe, Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific regions in February 2010.
