Using Pre-Punched Cards on Card Printers - Zebra

Applies To

  • All card printer models
  • Custom pre-punched cards
  • Details

    Zebra does not recommend or support the use of pre-punched cards. Examples of pre-punched cards are the ones with a slot at the top or side of the card where a clip or hanger would attached.

    Using pre-punched cards may cause the following:

    • Ribbon tearing or sticking to the card
    • May cause incorrect operation of the sensors in the printer; this could cause transport or other problems while printing
    • Pre-punched cards frequently have a rough or jagged edge around the punched hole that can damage the print head during printing

    It is recommended that hole punching be the final operation in preparing a card (i.e. after all printing / personalization and lamination is completed).
