Should I Choose the Single-Sided ZC300 Series or the Dual-Sided ZC300 Series?
It depends on how much information you need to put on your cards. For example, if you will only be placing the cardholder's photo and name on your cards, the single-sided ZC300 Series may be ideal for you. However, if you need to place more information on your cards, we recommend the dual-sided ZC300 Series so that you can print to both sides of the card in one, simple process.
Many customers ask if it is possible to print on both sides of the card with a single-sided printer by manually flipping the cards and sending them back through the printer. While technically it is possible, it's not recommended. Printing on both sides of the card with a single-sided ZC300 Series printer will expose the printhead to dust, debris, and oil from your fingertips, which can cause expensive printhead damage. Plus, damage to a printhead from non-standard use will void warranty coverage, costing you more in the long run.
If you will be creating ID cards with limited cardholder information, choose the single-sided Zebra ZC300 Series.
If you will be printing more information on your cards and want the ability to print on both sides of the card, choose the dual-sided Zebra ZC300 Series.
