Ink and Substrates
With LX610, two different types of ink and a wide variety of substrates are available. Dye-based ink prints bright and vibrant colors that are perfect for prime label applications. Pigment-based ink prints labels that are slightly less bright but stand up to sunlight and water for years. They also more closely match the output you'd get from flexo inks. Substrates can include gloss and matte paper, PVC, polyester and polypropylene. ICC color matching is also built-in and automatically loaded depending upon which ink and Primera substrate is utilized.
A copy of PTCreate™ Lite is available for free download with purchase of every printer. This highly intuitive software allows all typical print and cust functions, including import of images, drawing of circles, squares, ovals, rectangles, starbursts and more.
Upgraded software, called PTCreate Pro™, is sold separately. It further extends the capabilities of LX610 by adding many additional tools, including layering, export of images and contour cutting around intricate artwork. An auto-trace cut function in PTCreate Pro is speciallay useful for printing and cutting complicated shapes and designs.
