Primera LX500 Label Printer

Primera LX500 color label printers include BarTender UltraLite Primera Edition design software, one dye-based color ink cartridge, starter roll of 4" x 3" Tuff-Coat™ High-Gloss Inkjet Label Stock, printer drivers for Windows and Mac, and USB 2.0 cable and instructions. (The USB cable requires an available USB 2.0 port).

You will have the ability to create labels that include full-color photos, graphics, text, illustrations, and bar codes. The Primera LX500 allows you to print quantities you can really use instead of bulk labels that end up going to waste. Use this efficient printer only when and where you need to, and to top it off, depending upon the quantity of labels you print, the price per label will be significantly less than labels printed on flexo or offset.

Professional-Quality Results 
There’s no need to settle for blurry or smudged, color labels. LX500’s incredible 4800 dpi printing capability delivers expert results that far exceed almost any other on-demand print method. You will have the ability to select the combination of print quality and speed that fits your application best from four built-in print resolutions. Your labels will be bright, colorful and professional, no matter which combination you choose.

Creating personalized labels takes a matter of minutes on your Windows XP/2000/Vista or Mac OS X, 10.2 or higher. You can easily combine text, graphics, photos, and illustrations. You even have the option of including a bar code. 

BarTender UltraLite Primera Edition Software is included with this printer for your design needs. The printer is also compatible with most other graphic applications like Photoshop®, Adobe Illustrator®, etc. - giving you flexibility and ease with your design process!

Many Applications 
The Primera LX500 Label Printer produces beautiful, specialized labels for all your short-run products. It’s ideal for gourmet food producers, wine and water bottle manufacture, and personal care products. It is also convenient for a host of other uses: proof large runs before going to press, or use for personal or business cabinet labeling. Use this printer for test marketing, contract manufacturing, private label goods, promotional labels, full-color box-end labels with all the required bar codes, and much more!

A Wide Variety of Substrates – Including Water-Resistant Labels!
Primera LX500 prints on many label, tag and ticket materials, including inkjet coated high-gloss, semi-gloss and matte paper. Products printed on high-gloss paper are highly scratch- and smudge-resistant and highly water-resistant* as well. This allows you to print perfect, pristine labels for primary or box labels that can be exposed to water, rain and snow.

In addition to printing on high quality labels, you can print at a width as narrow as 0.75 inches and as wide as 4 inches. Maximum label length is 24 inches.

Quick Start Up
From initial set-up to full scale operation, the LX500 is easy and user friendly. Everything you need to start printing labels is included with your purchase. Each LX500 ships with BarTender UltraLite Primera Edition Software, ink cartridge and USB cable, and a sample roll of high-gloss labels. You’ll be printing within a few minutes of getting your new printer home.

*Approved substrates must be used for water-resistant properties.
