ZD220 4-Inch Value Desktop Printer

Reliable Operation, Quality Construction, Unsurpassed Value

Not all printers are created equally, especially basic models. To reduce costs, value printers are often constructed using less expensive components. Many fail to perform under more demanding duty cycles, create delays and downtime for repairs, and require replacement after only a few years of use. Instead of conserving budget, customers are left with greater expense and hassle.

Zebra does it differently. The ZD220 desktop printer gives you reliable operation and basic features at an affordable price—both at the point of purchase and across the entire lifecycle. Engineered with Zebra quality, it boasts a dual-wall construction for added durability. And, it is ENERGY STAR® qualified to reduce your operational expenses. Built to last for years, the ZD220 provides an outstanding return on your investment.
