The Zebra P420 plastic card printer is highly versatile and designed for high volume printing of dual-sided plastic cards in color. The P420´s rugged, all-metal enclosure houses a low-maintenance print mechanism that includes self-cleaning card handling, high capacity ribbon system, two-line LCD control panel, and convenient card reject hopper. The reject hopper separates cards that fail to encode prior to printing, saving valuable printer ribbon. The enclosure includes a viewing window to monitor the printing process without opening the unit. Transparent input and output hoppers provide visual card capacity status.
