The R5F002EAA YKMCO ribbon is the most popular choice of ribbon for the Evolis Zenius and an affordable choice if you’re looking to print high-quality ID cards.

However, the process of changing a ribbon in the Zenius remains the same whichever type you’re using. We’ve outlined the process below.

For optimum performance and to ensure your Evolis warranty isn’t voided, we recommend cleaning the Evolis Zenius every time the ribbon is changed too.

Once you’ve removed the new ribbon from its protective packaging, simply insert it as shown in the picture below. Ensure the part of the ribbon with two plastic hooks is positioned at the front end of the printer.
