Have you noticed how the ribbon looks after it was used? All the information printed can be seen on each panel used. Every year, millions of plastic cards are personalized for cardholders by printing or embossing personal, confidential identity information (e.g. name, account numbers, expiration date).
The Rippa ribbon feed device can be used with most top-fed, standard office shredders to destroy these ribbons and the images of confidential identity information they contain.
All card issuers should shred used ribbons to protect cardholder information and decrease potential liability arising from stolen ribbons.
For lower volume companies, you can also send us your ribbons for destruction.
