This advanced printer can turn out business cards at speeds of up to 100 cards per minute and CR80 ID cards at speeds up to 45 cards per minute.1 This means more prints in less time, perfect for handling large volumes, such as at trade shows, and long lines at important events. All with an ultra-crisp print resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi using dye-based inks for accurate color-critical graphics.
