Zebra release new ZD series label printers

Zebra have now released the all new ZD220 series of label printer.  This series will replace the GC series which will become discontinued in January 2020.

The ZD220 will certainly prove to be a popular choice with customers needing a simple printer that will reliably print small rolls of labels for many years.

Main features:

  • Single LED status indicator
  • Single button for feed/pause
  • USB connectivity
  • OpenACCESS™ for easy media loading

Like the GC420 series the ZD220 series will consist of a direct thermal (no ink ribbon required) and thermal transfer (ink ribbon required) version.

Being an entry level printer the only option you can have on the printer is a peel off unit.  This allows the label to be dispensed from the lining paper and the next label will print when the first label has been taken.

Like the GC, GK, GX and also the LP series before them the ZD series takes standard labels which are up to 5″ (127mm) in diameter on 25mm cores.  The printers only come in a 200dpi (dots per inch) version so a GX430t will be needed for applications where a higher definition print is needed (for ingredient  labels etc).
