Unique and Intelligent Time-Saving Ribbon Cartridge for Fool-Proof Instant Loading

If you need a fast 4" thermal transfer desktop printer that is easy to use, easy to deploy and easy to manage, choose the leader of the class - the Zebra ZD420 printer.  A new ribbon cartridge and more status icons maximize uptime by making using the printer easier than ever to use. 


With virtually every modern wired and wireless connectivity option and support for many printer languages, deployment is always fast and easy.  Just unplug your existing printer, plug in the ZD420 and you're back up and running.


Groundbreaking Ease of Use:  The Zebra ZD420 is loaded with features that make it the easiest printer to use in its class. The ZD420 is the only thermal transfer printer to offer a ribbon cartridge, which takes just a few seconds to load with fool-proof installation.  The crypto chip in the ribbon lets you know when the ribbon needs replacing. And with five status icons, your works can see at a glance what is needed to keep your Zebra printer up and running.


Easy to Clean and Sanitize Healthcare Model:  The ZD420 is available in a healthcare model with disinfectant-ready plastics and a sealed button interface that makes it easy to clean and disinfect.  The ZD420 fits easily in space constrained pharmacies, labs and nurses stations.  And with its 300 dpi printing option, even the small labels on specimen containers and prescriptions are highly legible.
