About the Zebra ZC10L Large Format Card Printer
The Zebra ZC10L is a large format printer for plastic cards, suited to use in the hospitality and events sector, lending itself to the production of high-quality event passes, delegate badges or visitor badges. The ZC10L is the only direct-to-card printer on the market that is capable of printing full-colour cards with an edge-to-edge print, all in one process! The printer makes it possible to produce event passes that are personalised and printed on the spot for event attendees.
Prints on large format cards (approx. 88 x 140mm)
Since the printer uses a full-colour print process, each card can be personalised with a photo ID or varying graphics or colours for different delegate types. Furthermore, monochrome black elements such as names, QR codes or 2D barcodes can be printed quickly and at a high quality for easy scanning.
Zebra has developed a full-colour ribbon for use with the ZC10L as well as a monochrome black ribbon. The black ribbon is ideal for adding personalisation to pre-printed cards. Many event organisers also use the black ribbon to pre-print cards with instructions or fine print to the backs of their event badges prior to the event.
Outstanding print quality
Thanks to 300dpi print resolution, the ZC10L delivers exceptional image quality, particularly noticeable when printing more complex background graphics and design elements. This gives the user the flexibility to create stunning badges that event attendees will remember. In addition to this, adding company logos and branding is easy and your brand will not be compromised by low print quality or inaccurate colours.
Reducing waste and saving time
Since the ZC10L is capable of printing the entire face of the card, for some users this can eliminate the need for ordering in a stock of pre-printed cards that have the design on. As a result, there is less chance of ending up with excess card stock after the event, thus reducing waste and saving money.
However, for some events that are required to produce larger quantities of passes on the spot, a fast print speed is required. In this instance, we'd recommend ordering in card stock that is pre-printed with your design so that all you need to do is add the monochrome personalisation like names and QR codes. This saves time because monochrome printing is considerably faster than full-colour printing.
Ease of use
The ZC10L can be paired with card production software such as CardExchange or Zebra CardStudio to make badge production stress-free. Designing event badges on card production software is intuitive and the ability to connect the software directly to a database of event attendees makes card personalisation simple and fast.
The printer is reasonably compact and the design is unobtrusive, allowing it to fit seamlessly into any office environment. The LED display is straightforward to use and makes the navigation of printer settings easier.
A large 200 card input tray reduces the need to top up the printer with cards frequently, and the 70 card output tray means that you can run batch printing without monitoring the printer all the time.
Please note printers are not supplied with a ribbon so don’t forget to add one to your cart.
