  • The only printer designed specifically for wristband printing

    The HC100 wristband printer has been designed with the user in mind. Combining the small-footprint HC100 thermal printer with easy-to-load cartridges, it offers an ideal solution for wristband printing. The wide ranges of available wristbands are suitable for healthcare, hospitality, and leisure applications.

  • Easy to load media cartridges

    The easy to load features of the HC100 require minimal, if any, user action, whilst its smart technology senses the wristband type and auto-calibrates the settings for optimized print quality and reduced waste. There is minimal training required to use the HC100 printer or to load or switch the cartridge—it’s a quick and simple task.

  • Ideal for Hospitality Venues

    Event wristbands have become a fashion statement or badge of honor to showcase all the events one has attended. However, for hospitality organizations, wristbands serve a different purpose as a business tool. The HC100 with hospitality wristbands changes the way events managers are planning and executing their events – increasing organizational efficiency and, most importantly, enhancing the customer experience.
