Zebra ZC300 Card Printer
DESIGN AND PRINT VIRTUALLY ANY CARD WITH GROUND-BREAKING SIMPLICITY
No matter what type of card you need to print — from identity and access to membership, event and credit / debit cards — the Zebra ZC300 will help you do it better, faster and easier.
If you can dream it, you can print it — single- or dual-sided, color, black and white or metallic, you can even embed security marks on the fly — a first for a printer in this price point. Add a magnetic stripe or create a contact or contactless card.
No matter how complex your cards are, the ZC300 makes it easy — Zebra’s Industrial Design team has elegantly engineered the ZC300 to address and eliminate virtually all pain points associated with card printing. And with a ground-breaking fits-everywhere design, you can get secure card printing wherever you need it.
Highly graphical LED/LCD interface
The ZC300 offers highly-intuitive well-tested icons, animations and text-based messages in your own language, allowing any user to easily understand what the printer needs and how to perform virtually any function — including how to clear a printer jam, fix a ribbon, load a ribbon or cards and more.
A new ingenious card feeder handles varying card thickness on-the-fly
The card feeder instantly adjusts to the thickness of each card — no more adjusting for different card stocks.
Painless plug-and-play deployment
The ZC300 is designed to work right out of the box. There’s no time-consuming complicated set-up — just plug it in and start reaping the benefits the day your printer arrives.
Groundbreaking new driver with a graphical user interface
The intuitive interface in the newly-designed driver makes it easier than ever to print cards. Settings are grouped logically into tabs where they are easily accessible with a click.
A visual display of your card makes printing simple monochrome and complex color cards equally easy, allowing you to instantly see how your card looks — eliminating the time and cost to repeatedly print test cards.
Revolutionary new hopper design
The completely re-designed hopper makes loading and unloading cards easier than ever. With the saloon-style output doors, there’s nothing to open — just grab one card or the whole stack of cards. And the input and output hoppers have the same capacity, reducing the need to refill and empty the hoppers.
Fool-proof ribbon changing
Changing a ribbon has never been so simple and uncomplicated — no instructions required. The newly designed ribbon door latch unlocks and opens in one motion. The unique door-handle style grip leaves no question about how to remove or insert the ribbon. And with embedded smartchips, you always know when to change the ribbon.
speak your language
Workers can interact with the ZC300 in their native tongue with support for multiple languages on the LCD display and in the driver — English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazilian), German, Polish, Russian, Simplified Chinese and Arabic.
Effortless manual card feed
Manually feeding a card can be complicated — we made it simple with a lightpipe that guides the user through the manual feeding process, the same way that automatic teller machines guide users through their interaction..
Sized to fit wherever you need printing
Your printer shouldn’t dictate where you can issue cards — it should fit wherever card printing is needed. From the minimal footprint and the slimmest profile to the lowest clearance in this printer class, the ZC300 is designed to fit in the most possible places — including under a counter or shelf.
All the connectivity options you need
Connect to one computer through the onboard USB to create a standalone printing station. Use the integrated Ethernet connection to give everyone who needs card printing instant access, maximizing printer usage.
And improve deployment flexibility with optional Wi-Fi, eliminating the time and cost to run network cabling to your printers.
