ZC10L Large-format Card Printer

Print stunning, edge-to-edge, oversized custom cards and badges in full color in one pass

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.
