Abstract

In a ribbon cartridge 10 (internal view shown on the drawing), a drive roller 11 is caused to rotate so as to pull a ribbon 12 from a ribbon supply 13~ The ribbon 12 is drawn across a print station 14 and is taken up on hub 15. Guide 16 comprises a single rib which projects down~ wardly from the inside surface of the top cover of cartridge 10 so that it contacts the upper edge of the ribbon 12, forcing the ribbon downward a sufficient distance so that when the ribbon passes to and around hub 15, the ribbon will engage the hub at essentially right angles and will be evenly wound thereon~
