Cost efficiency: supplies designed to minimize the cost per card
The ZXP Series 7 printer is designed to work with Zebra True Colours ix Series ribbons and Zebra True Secure

Zebra True Secure laminates reduce the risk of counterfeiting and extend the life of your high-security cards. The
unique laminate design dramatically reduces waste by eliminating the need for carrier material, backings and liners.
Specially designed cartridges make laminate replacement simple. Both the ribbons and laminates utilize intelligent
media technology, which automatically detects and calibrates the printer.
