Zebra ZC300 Single Sided ID Card Printer Description

Whether you’re printing employee badges to ensure security in your facility or cards for your customers, card printing plays an important role in your business. You want a card printer that will minimize the impact on your operational efficiency and workforce productivity — a card printer that’s flexible, secure, easy to set up, easy to use and easy to manage. You can have it all with the ZC300.

You get flexible card printing options — single or dual-sided, color or black and white. Flexible encoding options allow you to embed a magnetic stripe or utilize any third-party encoder to create a modern contactless card. And with fast printing, workers spend less time printing and more time on more crucial tasks — and customers spend less time waiting for cards to print.

You get elegant engineering for game changing simplicity. The ZC300 is plug and play, right out of the box — no configuration needed. The ingenious card feeder self-adjusts to card thickness. The new driver offers a graphical user interface that brings a new level of simplicity to managing the printing process and the look and feel of your printed cards. There is only one way the ribbon can be inserted into the printer for fool-proof ribbon changes — and with smart chips in the ribbons, you’re sure to always change ribbons before they are spent, avoiding needless printer downtime. Need to manually insert a card? The light pipe takes away any confusion, guiding users on where and how to insert the card. And with support for many diverse languages, the ZC300 is ready for deployment in any part of the world.

The ground-breaking ‘fits everywhere’ design is right at home anywhere in your business — from offices and back rooms to customer-facing areas. The slimmest profile and lowest clearance requirements allow the ZC300 to fit practically anywhere, providing the greatest deployment flexibility — it easily fits under a shelf and in other space constrained areas where other printers just can’t fit. Security features enable no-risk card printing in public-facing spaces, from a printer cover lock that prevents the theft of card stock and printed cards, government grade encryption to protect the most sensitive data and printer-to-host authentication to prevent unauthorized applications or mobile devices from printing cards.

And with Link-OS for Card inside, Zebra’s powerful printer operating system, you also get Print DNA, a family of printer software applications that puts the ZC300 in a class of its own by making it easier that ever to integrate card printing into your apps, design cards and support your ZC300 card printers.

The ZC300 — card printing made simple.
