Zebra® gt800™ Desktop printer

Zebra® gt800™
Desktop printer
Compact design with affordability,
versatility and ease of use
providing great performance and
reliability at a competitive price, the
gt800 direct-thermal/thermal-transfer
desktop printer offers a wide range
of advanced features to meet a
variety of low-to-medium volume
printing applications.
the gt800 printer supports both
74- metre and 300-metre ribbon capacities
and, because its intelligent design means
that no additional settings are required for
supporting different roll lengths, it is
easy for users to select the appropriate
length for the task in hand.
larger ribbon capacity (requiring less
frequent replacement) and its simplicity of
use combine with reliability and compact
design to make this printer an ideal
choice for commercial environments with
moderate printing requirements.
With a full feature set and competitive
pricing, the gt800 desktop printer provides
an affordable route to Zebra quality.

Intuitive and durable design
the intuitive design of the gt800
printer combines with a choice of three
connectivity interfaces and optional
10/100 ethernet, co-resident epl2™
and Zpl ii® programming languages,
Unicode™ and optional Zbi 2.0™ to
ensure that integration is quick
and efficient.
print speeds of up to 127mm per
second, a powerful processor and
memory allocation make label
processing and throughput fast and
easy whilst ongoing management of
the product and operator intervention
are kept to a minimum with status
reporting, odometer control and
increased ribbon capacity.
a durable, compact design supporting
a range of media with widths of up
to 114mm, the gt800 printer is an
excellent choice for customers looking
to migrate easily or upgrade from
a competitor’s thermal-transfer
desktop printer.
