ZC10L Large-Format Card and Badge Printer

Zebra’s ZC10L is the only large-format, direct-to-card printer that can produce full, edge-to-edge colour cards in one printing process. Reduce waste and save money both in pre-printed cards and unusable leftover cards by printing what you need on demand; there is no need to order partially pre-printed ID cards or badges in advance. With Zebra’s CardStudio design software, create visually compelling PVC cards with high-quality designs. The ZC10L is so flexible, you can make card design changes right up to the time of the event. Include sponsor logos, incorporate advertising, and take guest photos at the point of entry to further personalise cards and create guest mementos.

Designed especially to meet the needs of the Hospitality market, Zebra’s ZC10LTM is the only large-format, direct-to-card printer that can print full, edge-to-edge color cards in one printing process. Produce custom, oversized badges, sporting event and concert tickets/passes, special event and festival badges/passes on the spot in full color—in one print pass. Avoid the hassle of ordering and inventorying pre-printed cards for various levels of guest access at events. Instead, print photo-quality cards edge-to-edge at the point of entry. Since cards are printed on demand, you can customize them for individual guest needs. This adds personalization, reduces waste and eliminates the risk of running out of a specific type of card should attendance change. And, with 300 dpi print quality, the ZC10L enables you to produce cards with exceptional photo-quality images, rich colors and crisp text.

Zebra will also offer synced ribbon and card kits to eliminate waste and operator time. Supply kits sold exclusively for the ZC10L feature 400 cards and ribbon rolls to match. Exhaust ribbon and cards at the same time. No leftover stock or mismatched supplies. Customers looking to customize the backside of cards with “fine-print” content can also order Zebra’s monochrome black ribbon. Genuine Zebra supplies meet stringent quality standards. Our supplies deliver consistent results with every print job and minimize wear and tear on critical printer parts—resulting in reduced overall maintenance costs.
