DESIGN AND PRINT VIRTUALLY ANY CARD WITH GROUND-BREAKING SIMPLICITY
No matter what type of card you need to print — from identity and access to membership, event and credit/debit cards — the ZC300 will help you do it better, faster and easier. If you can dream it, you can print it — single- or dual-sided, color, black and white or metallic, you can even embed security marks on the fly — a first for a printer in this price point. Add a magnetic stripe or create a contact or contactless card. No matter how complex your cards are, the ZC300 makes it easy — Zebra’s Industrial Design team has elegantly engineered the ZC300 to address and eliminate virtually all pain points associated with card printing. And with a ground-breaking fits-everywhere design, you can get secure card printing wherever you need it. The ZC300 Series — complex card printing made easy.
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 to allow 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 card thickness on-the-fly
The card feeder instantly adjusts to the thickness of each card — no more guessing and 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.
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.
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.
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.
Printer and host authentication
Advanced security features enable printer- to-host authentication to prevent printing from unauthorized applications or devices.
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 and how setting changes impact card design — 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. Unlock and open the newly designed ribbon door latch in one motion. The unique door-handle style grip leaves no question about how to remove or insert the ribbon. The snug-fit design has no play or adjacent open areas, so there’s never a question about whether the ribbon is installed correctly and in the proper place. And with 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 — English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazilian), German, Polish, Russian, Simplified Chinese and Arabic.
AES data encryption
Government-grade encryption protects the most sensitive data during printing, such as account numbers.
Boost value with new capabilities and the right support

of settings on local and remote ZC300 printers, our Install & Configuration Assistance (ICA) Select program provides the support you need.
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 guide 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. And even the most complex design is as easy to print as a basic black and white card.
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. And with ZIP Pocket and our new Software Development Kits (SDKs), it’s easy to integrate support for any 3rd party contact and contactless encoders you may already own.
The ZC300 is ideal in many applications, including:
General Access Control
- Employee badges
- Access control cards for identification and facility access for K-12 and higher education campuses
- Membership cards
- Events and season passes
- Guest/passenger cards
- Food safety labeling
- Credit cards
- Debit cards
