£669.00 ex-vat

The Citizen CX-02 is a 6″ roll-fed Dye Sublimation Photo Printer, with the ability to produce a range of print sizes, including 6×4, 5×7, 6×8 and 6×9.

At only 12kg (unloaded), the Citizen CX-02 is comparatively lightweight for a Dye Sub Photo Printer that can produce up to 6×9. The CX-02 has a robust and compact design that results in a small footprint, with dimensions that are only 275(w) x 366(d) x 170mm(h).

Although compact, the CX-02 can still hold an impressive 400 6×4, 230 5×7, 200 6×8 or 180 6×9 prints which are similar to comparable printers.

Print speeds, in comparison to similar printers, are quick. The Citizen CX-02 can produce a 6×4 in only 8.4 seconds, and the larger 6×8 taking 15.6 seconds, which’s over 200 prints an hour.

If you are focused on image quality, you can adjust to a higher 600 dpi, or for ultimate speed, you can run the printer at 300 dpi. All it takes is a simple setting change in the driver.

The CX-02 rollback feature allows you to print 6×4, and 6×8 prints from the same media roll, without wastage.

Print finishes are either matte or gloss and do not require different media types.

The ergonomics of the CX-02 are brilliant, a front-loading door allows for easy media changes. The ribbon is loaded onto a tray, while the spindles are attached to the paper, the whole change takes a matter of seconds.

The power switch is located at the front of the printer, with USB and Power connections together on the back.
