The ZC100 & 300 Series Card Printers received a Red Dot in the 2019 Product Design category for its user-centered design approach. Zebra Technologies is leading the industry with products that enable users to gain performance while maintaining a focus on user-friendly innovations. This is Zebra's 5th consecutive Red Dot recognition.
Per the Zaharov-Reutt article, Curt Croley, Senior Director, Innovation and Design, Zebra Technologies said, "Our design leverages Zebra’s best-in-class card printing technologies combined with a thoughtful user-centred design approach. Zebra’s commitment to creative, intuitive and effective design for enterprise customers helps us deliver unprecedented visibility and productivity at the edge of our customers’ operations.”
ZC100, ZC300 and the field-upgradable ZC350 card printer securely prints a wide range of identification, payment, membership and plastic card credentials. Zebra ZC innovations focus on end-user needs such as simplicity of operation, ease of loading and reloading consumables, and self-aligning media with intuitive card loading and removal.
A unique blend of sleek, industrial design, the Zebra ZC series printers are lightweight and easy to manage. They have the slimmest profile and lowest clearance in their class of desktop printers. The design enables the ZC card printer to be tucked away under a counter or placed on a bookshelf. Its small footprint allows it to be conveniently used on an average office desktop.
