    Bought this unit for our job site badge printing operation. Jammed a few times due to airborne dust and dirt, but after these first hiccups, it rips and roars, meeting all of our expectations. Prints fast, accurately, and cheaply. Perfect for project management/job site monitoring applications!

    Comments aboutZebra ZXP Series 3 Single-Sided Printer - 1st Generation - DISCONTINUED:

    We have had our Zebra ZXP series printer online for almost a year. It is used daily to print our inmate ID's and has been excellent. I would recommend this printer to anyone that has a high volume of ID's to print.
