The Zebra P330i and P430i Professional Series Card Printers

The Zebra Professional range of card printers is currently made up of the P330i and P430i. Designed on the same performance based engine, the P430i is the dual sided printing version of the P330i which prints on one side only.

The Zebra P330i plastic card printer is the workhorse of the Zebra card printer family and has undergone significant improvement since its release in 2005 and is now faster and produces a significantly improved print quality. The Zebra performance series engine is the most popular engine in the world with many optional upgrades available such as smart card stations, Mifare encoders, Ethernet communication, extended hoppers and a wide range of monochrome ribbons.


Ap-Com has been selling and supporting the Zebra range of membership and ID card printers for more than 10 years, when they were Eltron / Privilege.

Club Membership Card Printing

The Zebra P330i is particularly well suited for the club membership card environment where magnetic encoding and a wide range of custom software systems are in use. The P330i boasts great compatibility with almost all membership systems and is the preferred choice of printer by most club environments.

Photo ID Card Printing

The P330i and P430i are widely used for Photo ID cards and badges, producing high quality cards, quickly, and on demand. Used in Schools, Universities, Government and Corporate organisations where the P330i meets both current and future needs with a good selection of both Zebra and third party optional upgrades. For Photo ID applications the P330i and P430i also supports a half panel ribbon where the photo and any colour logos can be printed in full colour on the first part of the card and black text on the rest of the card with a special half panel ribbon. The half panel ribbon provides the benefits of faster and higher yield printing at a lower cost per card.

Contactless and Contact Smart Card Encoding

The Zebra P330i and P430i both support all common forms of smart card encoding via Zebra and third party options, and when partnered with advanced software from NFive, powerful off the shelf encoding solutions can be implemented in a very short period of time.
