“Small and lightweight, it fits perfectly in tight office spaces yet still produces vibrant, durable cards every time.”

Key Printer Features

Print Quality

Dye sublimation thermal transfer direct-to-card printing combined with a resolution of 300 dpi creates sharp, vibrant images of the highest quality. It is useful to note the edge-to-edge printing leaves a thin white border around the edge of the card.


The ZXP Series 3 printer comes with a two-year manufacturer warranty on the printer and a two-year (unlimited passes) original printhead as standard.

Ease of Use

The easy-to-follow LCD screen makes operation simple. It will alert you when the ribbon needs replacing or if a clean of the printer is required. It can also be easily upgraded from single-sided to dual-sided in minutes.

Ease of Setup

With the simple step-by-step printer guide and installation disk, setting up the ZXP Series 3 is easy and quick and will have you printing cards in no time. 


Complete with a Kensington physical lock slot, the ZXP Series 3 has the option to upgrade to a GDPR enhanced Zebra printer with hopper and ribbon locks for additional security or there is the option to add an enclosure lock for financial card printing.


The Zebra ZXP Series 3 has the option of adding additional encoding features including Magnetic Stripe encoding, Smart card contact station and combined MIFARE contact and contactless encoder.

Printer Type

The ZXP Series 3 printer is a thermal transfer direct-to-card (DTC) model. DTC printing means the card design is taken from the ribbon and then printed directly onto the surface of the card which gives it a glossy professional finish. Thermal printing is where the ribbon is melted onto the card, so it stays glued to it.

Card Types

The Zebra ZXP Series 3 only accepts CR80 credit-card sized cards.

Print Volume

Based on a standard 35-hour working week, the ZXP Series 3 can produce 6,300 full-colour (YMCKO) single-sided cards or a massive 24,850 monochrome single-sided cards. This is best for companies want medium to large sized batches of ID cards.

Print Speed

The ZXP Series 3 can print a massive 710 monochrome single-sided cards in an hour or 180 full-colour (YMCKO) single-sided cards in an hour. The Series 3 also comes with a quick replace Load-N-Go ribbon cartridge to speed up the ribbon changing process.


Ethernet and USB connection are standard features with the ZXP Series 3, offering connections to both a network and a desktop to increase the flexibility of printing. 

Operating Systems

Standard USB/Ethernet ports and the browser-based Printer Manager helps you integrate printers into third-party applications as well as existing systems.


Its exact dimensions are 201mm (W) x 236mm (H) x 368mm (D) and it weighs 5.53kg.


Fitting nicely onto an office desk, the ZXP Series 3 comes in classic shades of grey and black with the signature yellow button on the top and its oval shape means it easily blends in.

Card Design Software

EasyBadge Professional is an advanced ID card design software that gives the user complete control over how their card looks and create an unlimited amount of records.
There is also the option to choose from one of four templates or switch to the creative mode and design a new card from scratch.
