Zebra ZC100

Product Spotlight: ZC100 Card Printer

A plastic card printer has many uses for a modern business: staff IDs, membership cards or loyalty cards can all add value to a business. While printing cards in-house may cost more than outsourcing in the short term, the convenience of being able to print small batches and having the added information security of managing the print in-house can pay off in the long term.

The ZC100 Card printer is ideal for lower volume, single side printing and is therefore suitable for smaller businesses. The ZC100 is groundbreakingly simple and is compatible with Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. It is perfect for student IDs, staff IDs and membership cards in lower security requirement environments. It’s also ideal for loyalty programme cards. Premier EPOS systems, such as our own OpSuite, allow for the complex integration of loyalty and other magnetic stripe cards.
