Small But Perfectly Formed


The New Zebra ZXP Series 3 Plastic Card Printers from CDN Print Plastic

released - May 16, 2011

The new Zebra ZXP Series 3 plastic card printers from CDN offers affordable card printing for users with low to medium volume card printing requirements. Based on the popular Zebra P110 and P120 series, the ZXP Series 3 offers increased direct to card printing speeds of up to 160 cards per hour, field upgradeable encoding and Ethernet interface options as well as increased security features. The ZXP Series 3 printers are highly versatile and designed with ease of integration in mind - providing flexible connectivity options and an SDK for custom applications, the ZXP Series 3 is the best value in its class for printing and encoding photo ID, access control, gift cards, loyalty cards, membership cards and many other types of plastic cards.

The ZXP Series 3 may be compact enough to fit easily on almost any counter space in retail, leisure or hospitality environments, but don’t let the size fool you, it’s packed full of features that really speak for themselves. Offering affordable on demand card printing thanks to either single or dual sided model options; the ZXP Series 3 range offers contact and contactless (MIFARE) encoding and a secure issuance model which is perfect for secure financial cards. Thanks to EMV certified encoding and optional security features, the ZXP Series 3 is one of the only printers in this format that has a fully lockable cabinet enclosure which features not only lockable access to the inside of the printer, but also to the cards in the input hopper. This means that cards can be printed securely in the knowledge that only authorized personnel have access to any sensitive information. All models in the ZXP Series 3 range come with a Kensington lock to secure the printer to any counter top.

The ZXP Series 3 printers utilize host based image technology which significantly speeds up card printing time by shifting most of the hard work to the host PC, allowing the card printer to focus on printing the actual card. Thanks to the new and improved Zebra i Series ribbons which have been reformulated to enable high speed printing and high performance, cards printed on the ZXP Series 3 now offer improved durability , increased image quality and a faster throughput.

Gift Card sales are exploding Retail stores have been responding to the demands of consumers as sales of gift cards — about $1 billion US when they were introduced south of the border in 1995 — exploded to about $70 billion this year.

In Canada, the retail sector is expected to bring in just under $59 billion in 2006 holiday sales, according to a study by accounting firm Ernst and Young.

Gift cards will make up a healthy chunk of those sales &8212; in 2005, a study conducted for the Retail Council of Canada said 19 per cent of shoppers would buy gift cards. But, in a news release, the council said that more Canadians would likely shell out for the convenience of not having to search high and low for that special gift.

The most successful gift card in North America may be the one offered by Starbucks. The company estimates that 10 per cent of all the caffeine hits served up by its North American baristas is paid for by gift cards. It's also the only retailer that will let you use your gift card to buy a gift card for someone else.

About 96 million Starbucks cards have been activated since they were launched in 2001 — and customers have reloaded those cards more than 38 million times.

Wal-Mart Canada expects gift card sales to explode as well. The company reports that by the end of November 2006, money loaded on gift cards waiting to be spent increased by 30 per cent over the same period a year earlier.

With competition increasing for the gift card dollar, companies are getting more creative in their offerings. Aeroplan is offering $100 and $250 cards that can be redeemed for merchandise in various retail outlets. The cards can be had for either 14,000 or 33,500 Aeroplan miles.

The priciest gift card around may be the $100,000 Four Seasons Gift Card. When the chain got into the gift card game in 2005, it was available in denominations up to $1,000. But cards worth $2,500 and $5,000 were quickly added.
