A Thermal Transfer ribbon is the consumable which contains the ink required for printing.
Of virtually identical exterior appearance, TT ribbons differ through the properties of the inked ribbon (backcoating, polyester film, ink layer(s)) but also through all the components which make up the roll (core, trailer of ribbon end and leader of ribbon start).
