Zebra Technologies recently received its 5th consecutive Red Dot recognition for design. 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.
Zebra ZC series card printers are a unique blend of sleek, industrial design in a lightweight and easy-to-manage package. With the industry's slimmest profile and lowest clearance and small footprint, the ZC card printer can be tucked away under a counter, placed on a shelf or conveniently used on an average office desktop.
The ZC series card printers securely print a wide range of credentials including IDs, payment, membership and loyalty plastic cards. ZC100, ZC300 and the field-upgradable ZC350 card printer feature innovations focused 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.
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.”
