  • 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 tampering. For advanced card security, add single-sided or dual-sided lamination to your printer and for maximum security, laminate your cards with custom laminates 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).

  • Lower cost-per-card with optional waste-free lamination

    The Zebra ZXP Series 9 with lamination uses patented waste-free laminates, an eco-friendly alternative featuring a single core with no carrier. Waste-free laminate effectively reduces laminate waste output by 50% while providing up to 30% cost savings on consumables. Zebra waste-free laminate lowers your cost per card and is available in standard clear or custom (e.g., embedded with hologram or microtext) to meet advanced security needs.

  • Standard Ethernet & USB with optional Wi-Fi connectivity

    The Zebra ZXP Series 9 comes standard with USB and Ethernet for networking your printer(s) across a local area network and is configurable for secure wireless connectivity. Wi-Fi allows greater networking flexibility and simplifies integration by allowing you to print from an unlimited number of computers from anywhere within your facility.

  • Optional encoding
    The Zebra Series 9 card printer offers several card-encoding options. To print and encode cards, add the magnetic stripe encoder (AAMVA and ISO 7811).
