Zebra P100i General Specifications - Lesar UK

Lesar UK have been working on their Zebra section of www.­lesar.­co.­uk for some time now, but after looking into all the Zebra ID Printer range we thought we would start by telling you about the Zebra P100i ID Printer.

The Zebra P100i is an ideal printer if you require a small but yet efficient Card Printer.

Our single-feed, single-sided P100i colour card printer allows you to create custom cards on demand. With its ease of use and budget friendly the P100i has become very popular within schools and colleges throughout the UK.

The P100i saves time and effort if you often print a variety of card types. Its three built-in storage trays allow you to store all your blank cards, stopping them from getting dirty and dusty. Optional features such as Ethernet Connectivity, Magnetic Stripe Encoding and Smart card encoding make this a truly flexible and powerful compact printer.

We find that this P100i is ideal for:

  • Employee ID and building access control cards
