High-speed, high-resolution desktop color label printer is economical

The new LX500 Color Label Printer, suitable for private labeling, test marketing, pre-press proofing and more, is up to 270% faster and costs $200 less than the model it replaces.

Introduced in May, the LX500 Color Label Printer with up to 4800 dpi print resolution is Primera Technology’s newest and most affordable desktop color label and tag printer.

Key features:

  • High-yield tri-color ink cartridge keeps cost per label low;
  • Fast print speeds and an optional built-in guillotine-style cutter allow users to quickly and easily print and cut their short-run labels;
  • Ready for instant use: Windows 7/8/10 printer drivers are included along with Bartender Ultralite (Windows) Software to format label designs, add barcodes, QR codes, and more; a Mac driver will be available soon.
  • It is priced $200 lower than the LX400 that it replaces.

Applications include product labels for bakery, cheese, coffee, confectionary, meat, wine and other specialty and gourmet foods. It can be used for private labeling, test marketing, pre-press proofing and retail shelf labeling.

Start-ups and other small businesses can produce short-run labels that look at least as good as those seen on large, national branded products, the company states.

Substrates include many different inkjet label materials including Primera’s exclusive Tuffcoat Extreme white and clear polyester stocks and white BOPP. Paper labels are also available in matte and high-gloss finishes.
