QuickLabel® QL-300

The world’s first five-color tabletop label printer for roll-to-roll processing applications

The QuickLabel QL-300 is the only (CMYKW) 5-color tabletop label printer that produces highly-durable labels with 1200 dpi resolution. So, its ability to print in white allows direct printing on a wide range of colored or transparent materials for excellent readability. In addition, the QuickLabel QL-300 prints highly UV- and scratch-resistant “no-label-look” labels that can withstand the challenging demands of harsh labeling applications. So, the addition of white toner also expands the creative labeling opportunities for industries such as health & beauty, food & beverage, beer & wine, spirits, e-liquids, and many others.

On the other hand, the high-speed 5-color tabletop label printer can produce labels at up to 6 ips (152 mm/s) and in widths of up to 5 inches (126 mm), allowing a wide variety of shapes and colors. Therefore, the toner-based printing system is ideal for brand owners and packaging industry applications where just-in-time label production is desired.

Lower Cost of Ownership

  • High-resolution output with low toner consumption
  • Flexibility to handle short, medium, or long runs without label waste
  • Reliable operation and long service life
  • Low-cost toner cartridge replacements and consumables

QL-30 & QL-60

With middle-aligned media and high print speeds, the QL-30 and QL-60 thermal transfer label printers are the superior choice for consistent monochrome standalone or integrated labeling applications. The QL-30 can print up to 11.8 ips at 300 dpi while the 600 dpi QL-60 can print up to 5.9 ips. With the ability to print labels as small as 4 mm in length, high accuracy and fast print speeds, the QL-30 and QL-60 are both unmatched in the market.

Each system features a full-color touchscreen interface, complete with user help videos and standard Wi-Fi for wireless operation. The QL-30 and QL-60 also provide ZPL emulation, allowing for seamless drop-in replacement of Zebra printers. Integrating with most external applications, the QL-30 and QL-60 excel when paired with our Lustro-Lam function.

With print impression and immediate label output high in importance, these printers will never compromise the accuracy of impression. Their rugged, compact design make both printers a great fit for anyone in need of an industrial printer with a small footprint guaranteed to provide years of service.

The QL-30 and QL-60 are ideal for producing durable images for linear and 2D barcode printing, hazardous substance labeling, overprinting and surfaces exposed to extreme conditions for lengthy periods.

Best for: food and beverage labels, nutrition facts, pet food labels, chemical labels, GHS labels, medical device labels, serialized and barcode labels, care and content labels, hardware labels, shipping labels, and UL-approved labels.
