Best of the Best award-winning design
The SureLab SL-D530 series of compact photo production printers
The design of these compact, lightweight photo production printers provides installation flexibility in shops where space is limited. Up to three units can be stacked on top of one another. Meanwhile, front access operation means you can install them even on narrow shelves and counters. Environmental impacts are minimized by employing a housing that contains recycled resin and ink bottles instead of ink cartridges, resulting in less packaging and other waste.
