I have a reinker for epson ribbons somewhere around here.
The problem with these ribbons it there is no drive roller in the ribon cartrage like the
hp or epson ribbons.
These ribbons get stuffed by a pusher that is part of the printer itself.
I am sure everyone is now confused, this is a printing head built in to a card punch and
prints the human readable text on the top of the card as it is being punched.
The reason it is 3/4 wide is there can be up to three lines of text on the top of a 96

Long ago, one
used to be able to order ribbons made-to-order.
I have a re-inker made by PBM that I would be willing
to part with. It
uses a small synchronous motor to slowly drag the ribbon over an ink
reservior equipped with very small holes through which the very viscous ink
"leaks". A very very messy operation, but it does work. It's set up to
work with aforementioned HP ribbon. IIRC, the ink is much more viscous
than that used to re-ink rubber stamp pads.
