Producing large format cards and badges with the Zebra ZC10L

If you’re hosting events and need tickets or badges that are versatile, hard-wearing, and larger than a standard plastic card, then look no further than the Zebra ZC10L.

This printer has been designed with hospitality and events in mind and is the only large-format, direct-to-card ID badge printer. Traditionally, extra-large plastic cards are pre-printed with a design, including any logos, event itineraries, and other information, leaving white space for any personal data (photos and text) printed separately on-site.

Instead, the Zebra ZC10L is able to print photo-quality, edge-to-edge designs on large format cards at the point of entry. This requires less forethought and planning to get your cards designed and printed in advance of the event, meaning you don’t need to worry about ensuring that they arrive on time. This helps reduce waste and eliminates the risk of running out of pre-printed cards.

The Zebra ZC10L prints with a 300dpi print quality, meaning that it can print incredible photo quality images with rich, vibrant colours and sharp text.

Saving time, consumables and money

ID Card Centre recommends that you only use genuine Zebra branded accessories with your ID card printer. The ZC10L is designed for outstanding durability and print quality, and not using genuine accessories can invalidate your printer’s warranty and reflect the quality of the printed ID cards. 

The printer is designed to eliminate waste materials and reduce the time to use and operate. This is crucial in the events industry, where a large volume of people need to enter simultaneously and therefore need printed badges or passes.

The ZC10L offers a speedy print of 195 full-colour single-sided cards per hour, helping to manage footfall and preventing large queues and extended waiting times.

High-quality printed passes and badges

Customers and guests like having badges and lanyards for their events. These items become personalised, tangible mementos and can act as a keepsake after the event. 

The XL card has added room for company logos, colours and information, turning the badge or pass into a quality form of marketing for the duration the event, whilst also acting as a reminder should the wearer keep the badge and lanyard.

Print quality 

The Zebra ZC10L is the only large format direct-to-card printer that can print edge-to-edge colour cards. This creates a professional looking design that doesn’t have a white border around the edge in the way other DTC printers do, allowing for more room for quality content on the ID badge such as QR codes, barcodes and more.

The ZC10L printer can print on both sides of the ID card, leaving more room on the reverse of the card for fine print or barcodes.

Clearer printing is professional and reflects on your organisation’s commitment to quality and details. As a tangible aspect of the event, attendee badges are a permanent reminder of the message of your event – which is why it is vital that it is perfect every time.
