Article ID: 65012570




This solution is useful for:

  • Card printers that use the EPCL command language
  • Users who need to specify the end of print on your cards
  • Understanding the +EC command

Applies To

All Performance and Value Class card printers


The end of card "EC" parameter defines the point where printing stops on the card. If printing occurs past the end of the card the ribbon can be unintentionally cut by the printhead.  

Below is an excerpt from the EPCL programming manual. This excerpt explains the +EC command and how to use it for adjusting the end of print. If you need information on adjusting the X and Y offsets you can find steps to do that here in Article ID SO8082. Read More>>

Note: Procedure for making these changes is labeled for a ZXP Series 3. However, the commands and location of these settings are similar, if not the same, as the Performance and Value Class printers.
