The Canon LX-D5500 is compatible with blank roll media, fanfold paper media, and tags. Roll media must be on a 3” core with a maximum outer diameter (OD) of 8 in. Non-perforated and perforated labels, as well as continuous labels, are supported by the LX-D5500 printer.
As previously mentioned in the article, the LX-D5500 can print labels up to 4″ wide. However, it is also capable of printing labels as small as 1.5″ wide.
The LX-D5500 is able to sustain both paper media and synthetic media. This includes materials like polypropylene (BOPP) and polyester (PET) labels. According to Canon, any labels that have an inkjet receptive coating are supported by the LX-D5500 printer.
Labels coated with either matte or glossy finishes can also be utilized. Matte labels offer a more subtle finish without a high gloss shine, making them the perfect choice for applications that require low surface reflectivity. Glossy labels offer a high-quality shine which makes vibrant colors more pronounced and gives labels a professional look.
Because it is able to print on demand, the LX-D5500 eliminates the need for pre-printed labels, which means users have the ability to print in-house and, ultimately, save themselves money by reducing individual label costs. Printing labels in-house allows for more customization without the expense of purchasing new printing plates or incurring expensive setup charges from your conventional label supplier. More personalized customization and market-specific branding can drive sales and differentiate your products from the competition.
