In a high-pressure situation, you need a card printer that produces quickly and reliably. The Zebra P330i full-color, single-sided printer uses a patent-pending angled, automatic card feeder that heads off misprints, and its self-aligning printhead keeps your cards uniformly crisp and professional. And with a print speed of 144 color cards per hour, you won't have to wait long before you can start issuing gorgeous, professional ID badges. Ideal for businesses with many employees, K-12 schools or retail stores, the Zebra P330i offers a streamlined solution for those looking to integrate ID cards into existing facility access systems, student meal point systems, time and attendance tracking and more.

The Zebra P330i comes equipped with all the features that make the iSeries popular. Load-n-Go ribbon cartridges take mere seconds to change, and each cartridge includes an integrated cleaning roller to keep your cards clean, which directly influences the sharpness of your images. A concise LCD display keeps you updated on your print status so that you don't need to decipher confusing LED lights, and with its USB interface, both installation and operation of the P330i are a breeze. And if you'd like to put your card printer on a network, you may opt to take advantage of the P330i's built-in Ethernet.

If you need advanced encoding options, you may purchase an optional dual high and low-coercivity, three-track magnetic stripe encoding unit or a contact smart card encoder. Or you may stick to barcodes, depending on the application. Whatever you need it for, trust the Zebra P330i to help you expand, secure and streamline your organization.
