The global innovation design team of Zebra Technologies created the next generation of card printers

ZC300 Series card printers

Zebra Technologies Corporation, an innovator at the edge of the enterprise with solutions and partners that enable businesses to gain a performance edge, announced the ZC100 and ZC300 series card printers have received the prestigious iF DESIGN AWARD in the discipline of product design.

“The ZC100 and ZC300 series is specifically designed to simplify all end-user touch points in order to create an intuitive, worry-free experience,” said Curt Croley, Senior Director, Innovation Design, Zebra Technologies. “These products are purpose-built to enhance the performance edge of our customers.”

The ZC100 and ZC300 series card printers offer a unique industrial design with the slimmest profile and lowest clearance in their class. They can be installed in space-constrained environments such as under a counter or shelf, and the printers’ covers are customizable to reflect their environment. They also feature an advanced card feeder that automatically adjusts to the thickness of each card, eliminating the error-prone process of manually adjusting for different card stocks. In addition, swing-open card output doors and a new ribbon door design simplify their loading and unloading process.

Established in 1953, the iF DESIGN AWARD has been recognized as an arbiter of quality for exceptional design. It is one of the world’s most prestigious design competitions. The 2019 awards were among the most competitive ever, with 67 design experts from 20 countries evaluating approximately 6,375 entries from 52 countries. The winners were recognized during a special ceremony on March 15 in Munich, Germany.
