Card Printer Ribbon Shredding Service

Buy a new printer ribbon from us and we’ll securely shred your old one for free

If you currently print your own ID cards, membership cards or other plastic cards using a plastic card printer, you might not realise that all of the personal data printed on your cards remains imprinted on the ribbon.

Which means anyone picking up the used ribbon after its been discarded would be able to retrieve all the information of your card holders. And that constitutes a data breach.

Avoid identity theft. We'll shred your old printer ribbon for free and send you a certificate of destruction for your files if you wish.

How to use our ribbon shredding service

Once you have bought a new printer ribbon from us, simply email sales@thecardnetwork.co.uk quoting your order number and advise that you wish us to shred your existing printer ribbon. Please mark ‘Ribbon Shredding’ as the subject of the email.

We will then email you a form to complete and send back with your used printer ribbon. The form will ask you if you wish to receive confirmation when the ribbon has been securely shredded.

Post the form and the ribbon to us at:

Production Department (Ribbon Shredding), The Card Network, Network House, St Ives Way, Sandycroft CH5 2QS.
