Vernon Hills, Ill., October 4, 2006─Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA) today

are optimized for tough printing environments, most often in self-serve applications where
reliability, durability and ease of use are critical. They offer Zebra an excellent opportunity to
provide additional specialty printing solutions to our current customer base.”
