ZXP Series 7 Pro Card Printer

Optimizing on-site card production services

The Zebra® ZXP Series 7 Pro meets today’s increasing need for service bureaus and governments to quickly set up and issue secure, reliable forms of identification while improving the efficiency and speed of large print jobs. The ZXP Series 7 Pro is simple to use, produces more cards in less time and is less expensive to own than any other printer in its category.

ZXP Series 7 Pro Card Printer

ZXP Series 7 Pro is specifically designed and configured to meet the needs of high volume Card printing.

Reliable performance and photo-quality printing

Like the ZXP Series 7, the ZXP Series 7 Pro version delivers the same fast yet reliable performance and prints sharp, vivid cards with photo-quality images. With available features like single- or dual-sided printing, encoding and connectivity options, as well as locking mechanisms for security, the ZXP Series 7 Pro is flexible to meet business needs now and in the future.

High-capacity hoppers

The ZXP Series 7 Pro has input and output hoppers capable of holding up to 250 plastic cards at one time, eliminating the need for constant staff oversight. The cards in the output hopper are stacked in first-in, first-out order, thereby eliminating the need for sorting cards once the print job is completed. Both the input and output hoppers are removable for quick and easy card reloading.

Synchronized supplies

The high-capacity input and output hoppers are synchronized with high-capacity ribbon options. The result? Less operator time spent replacing supplies and fewer production interruptions leading to more efficient operations and cost savings.

ZXP Series 7 Pro — when you need fast, reliable, high-volume card printing.
