The New Zebra ZXP
Series 3 Plastic Card Printers from CDN Print Plastic
released - May 16,
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
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

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