Description and Application of Primera LX500 Color Label Printer

Print Your Own Professional, High-Quality Color Labels
With the Primera LX500 color label printer, there’s no need to settle for low quality, low-resolution labels. This full color label printer delivers impressive results that exceed expectations as well as outshines any other on-demand printing method you may be considering. Four built-in print resolutions — up to 4,800 dpi — allow you to select the combination of speed and print quality that fits your application best.
For example, if you need to print a quick label to be sure everything lines up properly before running a large batch of high resolution product labels, set the printer to draft mode, which results in a faster print speed, but at a lower resolution and lower ink consumption. When you’re ready to print the entire batch and want the best quality possible, change the resolution. The printer will take longer to print each label, but you’ll get the highest quality output possible. Regardless of your choice, your labels will always be professional, bright and colorful.
Every Primera LX500 color label printer comes with NiceLabel™ SE Design Software, an easy-to-use program for your basic label design needs. The software allows you to mix various combinations of graphics, photos, texts, and barcodes to create stunning labels on a WindowsPC. For more creativity and flexibility in creating label designs, you can use Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop or consider a more robust label and barcode design solution such as Seagull Scientific’s BarTender.
Applications for the Primera LX500 Color Label Printer
The Primera LX500 color label printer prints any number of label types. Because of its 4800 dpi output and vibrant colors, the LX500 is considered a “prime” label printer. That is, the labels are of such excellent quality, they can be used on products such as wine bottles, personal care products, water bottles, beer bottles, gourmet foods, coffee and tea, promotional labels, and full-color box-end labels with barcodes.
With its compact size, the Primera LX500 can be placed in a variety of locations, lending itself to a variety of useful applications beyond printing prime product labels such as full-color tags, tickets, patient wristbands, coupons, visitors passes, badges, and much more.
For example, the LX500 is small enough to take with you to an event like a conference and attach it to a laptop for printing conference badges. Many schools and businesses use Primera LX500 color label printers in their lobbies and reception areas to print visitors and guest passes. The LX500 can also be used at the point of sale to print promotional labels, in food service areas and bakeries to print beautiful baked good labels, and at various venues to print tickets, branded coat-check tags, valet parking tags, and more. The possibilities are virtually endless.
As a 4-inch label printer, the label print width can be as wide as 4 inches across and as narrow as 0.75 inches. The maximum length is 24 inches.
