The simplest card printer on the planet

Highly graphical LED/LCD interface

The ZC300 offers highly-intuitive well-tested icons, animations and text-based messages in your own language, allowing any user to easily understand what the printer needs and how to perform virtually any function - including how to clear a printer jam, fix a ribbon, load a ribbon or cards and more.

A new ingenious card feeder handles varying thickness on-the-fly

The card feeder instantly adjusts to the thickness of each card - no more adjusting for different card stocks.

Painless plug-and-play deployment

The ZC300 is designed to work right out of the box. There's no time-consuming complicated set-up - just plug it in and start reaping the benefits the day your printer arrives.

Groundbreaking new driver with a graphical user interface

The intuitive interface in the newly-designed driver makes it easier than ever to print cards. Settings are grouped logically into tabs where they are easily accessible with a click. A visual display of your card makes printing simple monochrome and complex color cards equally easy, allowing you to instantly see how your card looks - eliminating the time and cost to repeatedly print test cards.

Revolutionary new hopper design

The completely re-designed hopper makes loading and unloading cards easier than ever. With the saloon-style output doors, there's nothing to open - just grab one card or the whole stack of cards. And the input and output hoppers have the same capacity, reducing the need to refill and empty the hoppers.

Fool-proof ribbon changing

Changing a ribbon has never been so simple and uncomplicated - no instructions required. The new designed ribbon door latch unlocks and opens in one motion. The unique door-handle style grip leaves no question about how to remove or insert the ribbon. And with the embedded smartchips, you always know when to change the ribbon.

We speak your language

Workers can interact with the ZC300 in their native tongue with support for multiple languages on the LCD display and in the driver - Englsh, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazilian), German, Polish, Russian, Simplified Chinese and Arabic.

Effortless manual card feed

Manually feeding a card can be complicated - we made it simple with a lightpipe that guides the user through the manual feeding process, the same way that automatic teller machines guides users through their interaction.

When it comes to card design, the sky is the limit

Easily print practically any design you can imagine

The ZC300 is loaded with advanced card production features. Print what you want, when you want, from just about anywhere—single or dual-sided edge-to-edge monochrome and color cards, with new ribbons that offer specialty colors and special effects. For example, a new pearlescent ribbon enables you to embed color-shifting graphics that are hard to counterfeit, improving card security. Make logos, text or account numbers stand out with 3D style effects that can be created with a new metallic color ribbon. And a new long life ribbon provides two new capabilities. You can embed a watermark graphic that can only be seen when the card is tilted at an angle or under UV light, improving security. And you can add a highly durable protective layer to create cards that will last for three to five years

Encode it your way

Right out of the box, you get support for magnetic stripe, a contact and contactless combination encoder with a Secure Access Module (SAM) socket to create payment cards.

Ground-breaking 'fits everywhere' design

Good looks that fit in anywhere

Even though the ZC300 is built for business, it has the consumer good looks required to fit in customer facing areas, from the retail store to the hospital admission desk.

Printer cover lock

The printer cover lock prevents the theft of card stock and rejected cards, providing the security required for installation in public-facing areas.

Sized to fit wherever you need printing

Your printer shouldn’t dictate where you can issue cards—it should fit wherever card printing is needed. From the minimal footprint and the slimmest profile to the lowest clearance in this printer class, the ZC300 is designed to fit in the most possible places—including under a counter or shelf.

All the connectivity options you need

Connect to one computer through the onboard USB to create a standalone printing station. Use the integrated Ethernet connection to give everyone who needs card printing instant access, maximizing printer usage. And improve deployment flexibility with optional Wi-Fi™, eliminating the time and cost to run network cabling to your printers.

Advanced security

Printer and host authentication

Advanced security features enable printer-to-host authentication to prevent printing from unauthorized applications or devices.

AES data encryption

Government-grade encryption protects the most sensitive data during printing, such as account numbers.
