Designed especially to meet Hospitality application needs, the Zebra ZC10L card printer is the only large-format, direct-to-card printer that can produce full, edge-to-edge color PVC cards in one printing process.  Print custom, photo-quality cards on demand.  Avoid the hassle of pre-ordering and inventorying partially pre-printed cards.  Reduce the waste of unusable, leftover cards.

The ZC10L is a 300 dpi modified photo printer, so it provides exceptional image quality—especially for background graphics and photos.  Users can pair Zebra’s CardStudio card design software with the ZC10L’s outstanding photo-quality, color printing to design and produce beautiful cards with rich graphics, crisp text, barcodes and images. 

Customers can create visually compelling cards with high-quality designs, allowing for added revenue streams through sponsorship logo inclusion and advertising placements.  Capture guest photos at the point of entry and print customized, edge-to-edge cards on the spot.  Create enduring guest mementos, not simply event access tools.

The ZC10L prints PVC cards that are approximately 3.5 x 5.5" (88 mm x 140 mm).  This larger format helps customers increase security as the oversized passes and badges are easier to see and read at a distance, giving event staff the ability to quickly identify guests and determine access permission.

As a direct-to-card printer, the ZC10L is easier to relocate than an inkjet printer.  Users simply unplug the printer and move it.  There is no risk of leaking ink, electrical shock or fire.  And, with an all-metal construction, the ZL10L can endure the shocks, bangs and bumps that often occur during shipping.
