Why is it recommended to use Clean Start?

Printhead build up is a normal occurrence in thermal transfer printing. Eventually the residue becomes permanent and will create a barrier between print head and label. Clean Start is the answer. It is positioned between the leader and the ribbon as a constant reminder to clean the print head every time a new ribbon is started. It is so easy and it helps to extend the life of the print head.

Save your printhead - use Clean Start!
