Save time and money by printing your own labels! The Primera LX400 full color label printer is for printing quick, short and economical runs of labels up to four inches wide. Use this printer when you desire vibrant color and extremely high image quality to distinguish your products.
The LX400 is perfect for labeling food products, especially high-end, limited production items or new food lines subject to design change. Give your new food production business an edge by showing extremely professional, impressive samples, even if you only make a few at a time. Labels can include photos, illustrations, logos, graphics, text, bar codes and nutrition panels. Meant for all kinds of food products, the labels stand up to heat, moisture and cold.
The LX400 utilizes the latest in high-resolution inkjet technology to print brilliant full-color products labels on-demand. Connecting via USB, it works with Windows or Macs. Use the included label design software or Photoshop®, Illustrator® or similar.
Professional-quality results: Don’t settle for low-resolution color labels on your products. LX400’s incredible 4800 dpi printing delivers results that far exceed virtually any other on-demand print method available. Four print resolution settings let you select combinations of print quality and speed to best fit your application. No matter which you choose, your labels are bright, colorful and professional.
Many applications: The LX400 produces gorgeous, professional-quality labels for all your short-run, specialty products. It’s ideal for gourmet foods, wine and water bottles, personal care and natural products. It is also perfect for a host of other uses such as proofing before going to press on longer runs, test marketing, contract manufacturing, private label goods, promotional labels and much more!
Get up and running quickly: From initial set-up to full operation, the LX400 is easy to use. Plus, everything you need to start printing labels is included in the box. Each LX400 ships with NiceLabel™ SE design software, sample roll of high-gloss labels, ink cartridge and USB cable. You’ll be printing full-color labels within minutes of taking the printer out of the box.
Printing your own labels with the LX400 rather than using a printing service, there are:
- No lead times
- No minimum order requirements
- No obsolete label inventory
- No plate and die charges
Print labels when and where you need them, in quantities you can really use! Best of all, depending upon the quantity you print, the price per label will be significantly less than labels printed on flexo or offset.
The LX400 is also ideal for producing full-color tickets and tags, retail coupons, patient wristbands and much more. The optional, field-installable Media Cutter attaches to the front of the printer and slides down and out of the way when not needed. (The Media Cutter is not usually needed for food labels.) A fan-fold media slot for tags and tickets is located on the rear panel of the printer.
Wide Variety of Available Print Stock (Substrates)
Forty or more standard label types are available in both round and rectangular shapes, from about 1.5” square or round to 4” x 6”. Label print width can be as narrow as 0.75 inches and as wide as 4 inches. Though label widths may be 4 inches, the LX400 actually prints up 4.25" wide, so printing is to the edge of the label with no border (full-bleed). (The LX810 and LX900 models print up to 8 inches wide.) The maximum label length is 24 inches. Custom label stock is available. Labels can be printed sideways so the maximum width becomes the maximum height and the maximum width becomes very wide.
Water-, heat- and cold-resistant labels! The LX400 prints onto many different label, tag and ticket materials, including inkjet coated high-gloss, semi-gloss and matte labels. Labels printed on high-gloss material are highly scratch- and smudge-resistant and virtually waterproof. There are perfect solutions for food labels that will be exposed to frost, condensation, hot or freezing temperatures.
