Zebra ZC350 Single Sided ID Card Printer Description

When it comes to ID card printers you want a printer that’s easy to set up, use, and manage while providing flexibility and security. You can have all of that with the ZC350. Avoid the usual headache of setting up a new printer altogether with out-of-the-box plug-and-play - no configuration needed.

Printing without limits

Enable color-shifting graphics with a new pearlescent ribbon. Use 3D effects to make logos and text stand out with a new metallic ribbon. Support watermark for simple elegance or additional counterfeit protection. Highly durable protective layer to create cards that can last for years.

Take care of all your encoding needs

Comprehensive encoding options allow you to easily create cards for any type of transaction — contact, contactless or magnetic stripe. Fast printing, workers spend less time printing and more time on more crucial tasks.

Speedy and reliable printing that’s up to any task

You can count on the ZC350 to get the job done in no time with blazing-fast printing speeds. By printing up to 225 YMCKO full-color or 1,000 monochrome cards per hour, the ZC350 is one of the fastest printers in its class. There’s also no need to do any mental acrobatics when it comes to feeding or removing cards with both input and output hoppers taking 100 cards. The card feeder automatically adjusts to various card thicknesses for a seamless printing experience.

Effortless maintenance

Zebra’s official ribbons come with smart chips to inform you when to change the ribbon before it becomes an issue. When it’s time to change your ribbon, the newly designed door latch unlocks and opens in one smooth motion. A snug fit and no adjacent areas leave no doubt as to when and if your ribbon is correctly installed - no instructions needed. The interface will also help you fix jams or diagnose other issues without needing to be an expert.

Peace-of-mind security

The ZC350 comes fitted with Government-grade AES encryption to protect sensitive information, like account numbers when printing. Printer-to-host authentication stops unauthorized persons using your printer while a printer cover lock keeps your cards under lock and key.

Added-value Software

Combined with the superb hardware, the software bundled with the ZC350 adds a lot of value to your operations. Print DNA’s suite of Zebra-only software tools elevates your Link-OS for Card printing devices. It provides an easy to use interface for managing your printer and integrates with other apps and card design software. To top it off, the ZC350 is compatible with Apple, Windows, and Android devices.

Built to ‘fit everywhere’

With a ZC350, no longer does your printer have to be confined to the backroom. The ‘fit everywhere’ specification is appropriate for the back office as well as customer-facing areas, from a hospital to a retail store. With a slim profile and low clearance requirements, you can squeeze this space-conscious printer in just about anywhere.
