Next-Generation Simplicity and Security In A “Fit Everywhere” Design

Whether you need to print single-sided employee identity badges or membership and event guest cards, card printing is a crucial aspect of your business. Deployment flexibility and the time it takes to print and manage your card printing solutions all have an impact on your business — from your brand image to staff productivity, overall operational efficiency, and operating costs. Now, there’s a new kind of card printer designed to address it all — the Zebra ZC100 Card Printer. You get groundbreaking simple operation and the slimmest fit-everywhere design, along with a toolbox of additional capabilities that make the ZC100 even easier to integrate, use, and manage.

Painless Plug-and-Play Deployment

The Zebra ZC100 Card Printer is designed to work right out of the box. There’s no time-consuming complicated setup — just plug it in and start reaping the benefits the day your printer arrives.

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.

The Most Intuitive LEDs

With our well-tested intuitive icons, a quick glance is all it will take for your users to see the status of the ZC100.

Innovative 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 allows you to instantly see how your card looks and how setting changes impact card design — 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. 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. Unlock and open the newly designed ribbon door latch in one motion. The unique door handle style grip leaves no question about how to remove or insert the ribbon. And with embedded smart chips, you always know when to change the ribbon.

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.

We Speak Your Language

Workers can interact with the ZC100 in their native tongue with driver support for multiple languages — English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazilian), German, Polish, Russian, Simplified Chinese, and Arabic.

Good Looks That Fit Anywhere

Even though the ZC100 is built for business, it has the consumer good looks required to fit in customer-facing areas, from the retail store to the hospital admission desk.

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 ZC100 was 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. Or, add optional Ethernet or Wi-Fi to give everyone who needs card printing instant access, maximizing printer usage. And improve deployment flexibility with Wi-Fi — the time and cost to run network cabling to your printers is eliminated.

Printer Cover Lock

The printer cover lock prevents the theft of card stock, providing the security required to install it in public-facing areas.

Advanced Security - Printer and Host Authentication

Advanced security features enable printer-to-host authentication to prevent printing from unauthorized applications or devices. The ZC100 also has Government-grade encryption that protects the most sensitive data during printing, such as account numbers.

Basic Encoding Options

Whether you are printing employee badges, ID cards, season passes, membership cards, or credit and debit cards, you can choose the encoding option of your choice. Add a ‘swipe-and-go’ magnetic stripe when you print cards.
