Zebra® ZXP Series 8™
ID Card Printer

High-Security Retransfer

Innovative, Best-in-Class Retransfer Card Printer
With best-in-class, productivityboosting, full-throttle throughput, produce vivid color plastic cards on demand fast—thanks to Zebra’s highly advanced ZXP Series 8 retransfer card printer and its patent-pending image transfer process. Yet even at unparalleled print speeds, the printer achieves superior, photo-like image quality that boasts rich, consistent colors and strikingly sharp resolution.

The ZXP Series 8 includes ZMotif™ XML-based software for easy integration with enterprise applications. A modular design gives you the flexibility to add a variety of encoding options as needed. And the printer’s high reliability minimizes maintenance needs and total cost of ownership.

In General, Benefits of Retransfer Printing Include:
• Higher image quality and print resolution
• The ability to print on uneven card surfaces such as smart cards
• T rue edge-to-edge printing (via over-the-edge printing). Traditional card printers leave a white border at the edges of the card.
• The ability to print on non-PVC cards. Direct-to-card printers require a dye-receiving surface available only through PVC cards.
• More durable and abrasion-resistant cards • Fraud protection, since the film is inherently tamper-evident

Advantages of Zebra’s Innovative Retransfer Card Printer
Zebra’s ZXP Series 8 printer achieves the fastest print speed while maintaining top image quality, making it the best-in-class retransfer printer available on the market.
• Zebra achieves print speeds that far exceed any other retransfer printer, and that are comparable to many of the fastest direct-to-card printers on the market today.
• Zebra’s image-processing technology compensates for image errors normally caused by high printing speeds—enabling photo-quality images and print resolution even at increased print speeds.
• Zebra’s patent-pending simultaneous dual-sided image transfer process applies film to both sides of the card in a single pass, drastically reducing the print time.

The result is photo-like image quality and best-in-class throughput for mainstream printing, encoding and laminating—so you enjoy increased operational efficiency.

Superior Performance
• Best-in-class throughput for printing, encoding and laminating—due in part to the patent-pending simultaneous 2-sided retransfer process plus efficient landscape print mode—increases your operational efficiency without sacrificing quality.
• Based on Zebra’s image-processing technology, photo-quality color and resolution are obtained to meet your quality and brand specifications.
• Designed inside and out to be reliable and durable—reducing repair costs and downtime.

Security Features
• Laminator module option for single- or dualsided lamination
• Transfer film easily shows tamper evidence for built-in fraud protection
• Lockable enclosure and card feeder option prevents unauthorized use
• Kensington® lock slot to secure printer to work environment
