  • A full range of encoding options available, including magnetic stripe, HF/Contact combination encoder with 1 SAM slot, UHF RFID, reading Proximity and iCLASS cards.

When you want it all in a card printer, the ZC350 delivers. Advanced printing options allow you to create virtually any design you can dream up. With support for just about every encoding technology, you can create just about any type of card—credit, debit, identity, access, loyalty, public transportation passes and more. You get the fastest print speeds—up to twice as fast as some competitive printers. You get foolproof push-button simplicity, whether you’re printing single or dual sided cards with simple monochrome or very complex color artwork. And with its cool design, the slimmest profile and the lowest clearance, the ZC350 can fit in more spaces than any other printer in its class. The ZC350 Series—the card printer that delivers it all.


Highly Graphical LED/LCD Interface

The ZC350 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, load a ribbon or cards and more.


Meets Your Need for Speed

Meets Your Need for Speed Whether you need to print one card, hundreds of cards or thousands of cards, with some of the fastest print speeds in this class, you can count on the ZC350 to get the job done fast


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 makes printing simple monochrome and complex color cards equally easy, allowing you to instantly see how changing settings impacts card design—eliminating the time and cost to repeatedly print test cards.


Painless Plug-and-Play Set-up

The ZC350 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


A New Smart Card Feeder Handles Card Thicknesses On-the-Fly

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


Revolutionary New Hopper Design

The completely re-designed hopper makes loading and unloading cards simple. With the saloon-style output doors, there’s nothing to open—just grab the cards you need. 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 uncomplicated. The newly designed ribbon door latch unlocks and opens in one motion. And with the unique doorhandle style grip and embedded smartchips, you always know when and how to change ribbons.


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.


We Speak Your Language

Workers can interact with the ZC350 in their preferred language 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.


Easily Print Practically Any Card You Can Imagine

The ZC350 is loaded with advanced card production features. Print what you want, from just about anywhere—singleor dual-sided, with edge-to-edge coverage in black and white or color. Specialty ribbons¹ offer card design flexibility with special effects, and enhanced card functionality and durability. The long life ribbon adds a highly durable protective layer for cards that will last for three to five years, along with the ability to embed a watermark that can only be seen when the card is tilted at an angle or under UV light, improving security. Make logos, text or account numbers stand out with 3D style effects that can be created with the metallic color ribbon. Further improve security with a pearlescent ribbon that allows you to embed color-shifting graphics that are hard to counterfeit.


Encode it Your Way

With the ZC350, you get complete encoding flexibility. No matter what type of encoding technology is right for your cards, the ZC350 supports it right out of the box—from magnetic stripe and proximity to contact and contactless.


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.


Good Looks That Fit in Anywhere

Even though the ZC350 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 ZC350 is designed to fit in the most possible places—including under a counter or shelf.


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.


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.
