Beginning on Monday, June 24th, Zebra ribbon prices increase on certain legacy items. 

The cost of raw materials used to formulate Zebra ribbons rose since early last year. This is primarily due to tariffs placed on products from China and other countries.

In March 2018 the U.S. imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports and in July 2018, set a tariff of 25 percent on 800+ categories of goods imported from China. This has impacted the cost of raw materials to manufacturers like Zebra.

Until now, Zebra absorbed many of these cost increases. 

Zebra price increases impact color and monochrome ribbons for the following legacy printers: 

ZXP1, ZXP3, ZXP7 and ZXP8/9, C series, P110i/120i, P330i/430i, P520i, P720i, P640i.

Models not impacted: Ribbons for ZC100/300/350 and the ZC10.
