Zebra ZXP Series 7 Card Printer Tour – A quick demo of the ZXP Series 7


Hi its Camille with POSGuys.com. Today we’re
going to take a look at the Zebra ZXP Series 7 card printer. You guys know, possibly anyways,
that I love card printers. So we are going to do a quick run-through just so you can
see the ins and outs of this machine. This is where you load your cards. Just like
this, this slides that way and your cards pop in right there. This snaps in place. You
can hear its nice strong snap. Closes up. Fits about 200 cards. Nice size! LED display with menu buttons, return, print
test cards, etcetera. You can find your IP and I am going to say select return to go back. This is your media bay. Pop it open with that
button. A nice new feature on this one for me anyways is this drawer where you pull the
media out, like its a little drawer. This saves on cut fingers from having to stick
your fingers in the machine and pull out media that is stuck in there tight. The media itself
which is this CMYK ribbon pulls out just like I did right there. you don’t have to do any
major snapping or pulling you just pick it up. Look at that I can do it really fast. To put it back in there you… make sure it
is lined up with the axles, the inside rotational pivots there. Shut it nice and firm. See how
I did not quite get it right there. It must have something blocking it. So pull it out
make sure that nothing is jamming it. Aww I am just kind of pathetic today aren’t I? I usually do not have this much trouble shutting
it but there it is. There you go! That is a fully closed media drawer.
This comes down, oh before I shut it this is your print head right in here. So the print
heats up the ribbon and transfers it to the card. This is closing it up and right there is where
your cards come out. If you listen closely right now you can hear it is checking the
printer ribbon. Getting everything lined up making sure that it is working. Do you hear
it spooling? This card output holds about 100 cards which
is great if you are doing high volume and will work fine if you just need one or two
like you’re printing student IDs on the fly. My favorite feature on this printer is its
composite black printing. What that means is if you have an image made of CMYK like
those panels we saw earlier which were Cyan Magenta Yellow blacK then what it does it
will automatically put the black on the image. A lot of printers will just do CMY which unfortunately
results in a faded black. One downside of this printer is that while
it can print on regular card-stock just fine… yeah we’ll put it in there. See that is a
100 cards. Right there. While it can print on regular card stock just fine it can’t do
keychain cards. Now mind you, the Zebra ZXP Series 7 can’t do keychain cards so see if
Zebra has any other options. They might have some that can handle it. Keychain cards come
like this. When you print on them they are three up and they snap apart like this. That
is your end keychain size. So that is it! This is a Zebra ZXP Series 7! A really nice,
NICE quality card printer. I would not suggest doing edge to edge printing but I really do
love it otherwise. If you are interested in purchasing it or you would like more information
please contact us at POSGuys.com. We do not have it listed on the website because it is
such a specific product that it does not appeal to a lot of people to have on our site but
we do love our card printers and we can help you find what you need for your business specifically.

    Hi! Great video, i would've love to see a demonstration of it printing something but that walkthrough makes me want to buy it. I notice you said that you're not recommending it if we're doing edge to edge printing, could you please recommend me another printer that can print edge to edge if theres another option?

    I'm thinking about starting my own trading card game company but i really need to know what printer you would use for printing in the same style as Pokemon cards or any of the other brands. If you could do a recommendation on a good printer for this or even the actual specific printer they do use and if you wouldn't mind, even a tutorial on what to do and how to use it.
    Also what type of card/ paper would you use for that type of printing- (for the cards)
