What's Included

The ZXP Series 9 Single-sided ID Card System is Zebra's second-generation retransfer printer, with industry-leading print speeds and optional eco-friendly, waste-free lamination that lowers your cost per card. This performance-driven printer uses patented Color Predictive Technology (CPT) to auto-adjust the settings of your printer for optimal print quality. With user-selectable print modes and optional encoding features, the ZXP 9 offers greater user control, flexible operation, and the power to produce securely laminated cards with vivid graphics for any application.

With the feature-rich Zebra ZXP 9 single-sided printer, you'll get all of the essentials to launch your card issuance program quickly and conveniently: a free 30-day subscription of CloudBadging ID Card Software, a YMCK color ribbon, transfer film, 500 blank composite PVC cards, and a photo ID camera.

  • Superior print quality

    Print photographic quality cards with fully saturated colors, sharp image resolution, and over-the-edge surface coverage with the Zebra ZXP Series 9. Performing at 300 DPI with dye-based media, the ZXP 9 uses retransfer technology to produce durable printed cards with built-in fraud protection and consistent print quality - from first card to last. With its advanced retransfer printing technology, the ZXP 9 can print onto a wide variety of cards, including standard PVC, composite, ABS, PET, PET-G, and Teslin composite cards. It also prints on specialty cards and technology cards (e.g., contact, contactless, and UHF RFID) with uneven surfaces.

  • User-selectable print modes & Color Predictive Technology (CPT)

    Exclusive to Zebra, the ZXP Series 9 printer features patented Color Predictive Technology (CPT) that automatically adapts the settings of your card printer to optimize print resolution. Plus, the ZXP 9 offers two user-selectable print modes: Standard for faster print speeds or Fine Print (which works with CPT) for enriched image quality.

  • Industry-leading throughput: As fast as direct-to-card!

    Faster than the ZXP Series 8 and its competitors, the Zebra ZXP Series 9 can print up to 190 single-sided or 180 dual-sided full-color cards per hour. When configured for dual-sided printing with single- or dual-sided lamination and optional encoding, the ZXP 9 makes allows you to print, encode, and laminate dual-sided cards in a single pass. The ZXP 9 also features a single-card feed to accommodate on-demand printing needs.

  • User-friendly features

    The Zebra ZXP 9 offers intuitive operation, even for novice ID card printer users. There's also a 21-character, 6-line LCD operator display, auto-calibration, and easy access to print media. It's outfitted with a 150-card capacity feed, a 100-card output hopper, and a 15-card reject hopper. You can even reduce operator time by adding an optional additional 150-card input hopper (sold separately) to double your card input capacity.

  • Advanced user control & quick access to printer support

    The ZXP 9 features NFC Print Touch (compatible with all Android devices) and QR code link for easy, on-the-spot access to printer info, troubleshooting tips, how-tos, and additional product support. Compared to the ZXP Series 8, the Series 9 boasts an enhanced user interface and utility toolbox for easier-than-ever configuration and operation. Reduce printer downtime and enjoy full control over your ZXP printer functions using these intuitive features. You can even monitor networked printers remotely using Zebra's optional PrintMonitor (part of the Zebra PrintWare Suite).

  • Built-in fraud protection & optional physical locks

    By incorporating a layer of tamper-evident retransfer film into the standard print process rather than printing direct-to-card, the ZXP 9 helps protect your printed cards from duplication and unwanted tampering.

  • Optional advanced security

    For advanced card security, add single-sided or dual-sided lamination to your printer, and for maximum security, laminate your cards with custom a laminate featuring holograms and/or other visual security elements. The ZXP Series 9 card printer offers physical security features, including a Kensington lock slot, optional printer host authentication (password protection), and optional physical locks (for laminator, enclosure, and card feeder).

  • Optional dual-sided printing
    Save time and eliminate the potential for mechanical error and card jamming caused by manual card flipping by opting for built-in dual-sided printing.
    Note: dual-sided printing is a prerequisite for adding single-sided or dual-sided lamination to your ZXP 9
