  • CardStudio version V1.2 (any edition downloaded from www.zebra.com)


Unlike previous versions, the CardStudio V1.2 web download does not come with card design templates, known as Quick Design Cards (QDC).  The graphics library is too large to be included in the digital download.


The Quick Design Templates can be downloaded from the following link.  Unzip the QDC.zip file and then run the QDC.exe file.  Restart the software after this point and the templates should be available.    Read More>>

A secondary option is below:

QDC is included in the CD version of the software. Users wanting the design templates will need to run the installation file from the disc. If there is no disc available, users can contact a Zebra reseller to order the Demo version of CardStudio (if a license has already been purchased) or the desired licensed version:
