About Armor

The ARMOR brand began in France in 1925, and became the forerunner in thermal transfer ribbon technology in Europe. The company’s innovation drove it to global success with an extensive line of wax, resin, and wax resin thermal transfer ribbons. For all of your thermal transfer printing needs—including compliance and certification, like California Proposition 65 and Food Contact USA—Ideal Print Solutions has the ARMOR ribbons to deliver exceptional print quality.

Among ARMOR’s innovations is the development of the unique production process that enables thermal transfer rolls to be manufactured without using a solvent. This breakthrough represents a major advance in environmental protection.
