Why sell Zebra supplies?

Every year, customers spend three to 10 times the cost of their Zebra printer on printing supplies. This represents a massive opportunity to achieve your quota and increase your commissions. When you purchase from Zebra, you’ll get access to our knowledgeable supplies quoting specialists and access to tools and resources to help you pitch Zebra supplies and close opportunities. Buying supplies through Zebra also comes with:

  • Supplies Selector Tool


  • All raw materials are subjected to a rigorous 23-point ISO 9001:2008 certified quality approval process by our dedicated team of material sciences experts. We inspect the raw material before production, the product as it is being manufactured, and the finished product.
  • All finished supplies undergo a rigorous 26-point ISO 9001:2008 certified quality approval process evaluating print quality, printer wear and tear, and application testing. We analyze materials in a wide range of printers, print speeds, darkness settings, and harsh environmental conditions.
  • We use only inks, varnishes, tools, and equipment compatible with thermal printing materials. Because Zebra-certified supplies have consistent properties, you can keep your Zebra thermal printers operating seamlessly and reduce the need for adjustments and IT assistance, minimizing downtime.
