Product Highlights
  • Produce Your Own Product Labels In-House
  • High 2400 DPI
  • Built-In Automatic Cutter
  • Print Large Jobs Unattended

The Primera CX1000 Color Label Printer makes it easy and affordable to print your own product labels in-house. The high 2400 dpi coupled with a 16.25 ft/minute print speed yield high-quality labels any time you need them. The included PTPrint software guides you through the label-printing process for easy, cost-effective labels. In addition to a lower cost-per-label, it takes very little time to get the CX1000 up and running. Instead of having to run large print runs, you can simply print only what you need; you won't have to worry about printing extra unused labels. The printer is designed to run unattended, including an automatic cutter which cuts off the roll at the end of the print job.

Print Your Own High-Quality Product Labels

The CX1000 makes it fast and easy to produce your own labels in-house. No longer do you need to order massive quantities of pre-printed labels. There's no lead time and no set-up charges, either. Just import your label files into the included PTPrint Software, specify how many you need, and press "GO!"
Printing your own labels saves time and money in other ways, too. Design changes can be accomplished immediately so you'll have no wasted inventory - print only the labels you need when you need them. Cost per label is almost always significantly lower than outside vendors, too

Print Quality

One of the best things about CX1000 is its incredible 2400 dpi print quality. Compared to 1200 or 1600 dpi machines, you'll notice a striking difference in overall quality. CX1000 output has much deeper and far more vibrant colors. Dot patterns are virtually imperceptible. And for the most precise color control, Pantone-approved spot color support is included


Print speed is 16.25 feet per minute (5 meters per minute). You can print up to 500 feet (152.4 meters) at a time which nominally equals an 8" (204 mm) diameter roll. Once a job is started, it can be left unattended. A built-in cutter automatically cuts the web once the job is completed. You'll come back to a roll of finished labels ready to be applied to your products manually, semi-automatically or by an automated applicator

Many Substrates

CX1000 prints onto many different laser-qualified label materials, from pressure-sensitive plain papers to white and clear polyesters and more. A wide range of approved matte, semi-gloss, high-gloss and specialty food and beverage label materials are available. We've even qualified an all-new range of eco-friendly materials that are 100% recyclable. Printed labels are waterproof, as well as highly scratch, smudge and tear-resistant. They've been specifically engineered for best-in-class performance with the toner used in Primera's CX-Series Color Label Printers. Dozens of popular pre-die cut sizes are in-stock and ready for immediate shipment. Custom sizes are also available

Easy Setup & Simple Operation

From initial set-up through running big jobs, you'll find that CX1000 is as simple to use as any desktop office printer. There's no proprietary operating system or inflexible built-in computer, either. If you'd like additional help getting started, we offer free technical support for the life of your unit

Advanced Ink & Cartridges

Primera's micro-fine dry toner-based inks have been formulated for substrate flexibility, robustness and low running costs. Primera's toner is, in fact, one of the best in the industry for waterproof performance and for long-term UV and abrasion resistance. The four extra high-capacity toner cartridges are easily replaced in just seconds from the front of the unit. An integrated memory chip assigns each cartridge with a serial number and keeps track of precisely how much toner remains. This lets you to select exactly the right cartridges for the number of labels and the ink coverage you need to print. This helps to prevent running out of ink in the middle of a job. You'll also utilize all of the toner in each cartridge, saving you even more money

Primera & The Environment

Primera strives to be an environmentally responsible provider of state-of-the-art digital label printing technology. As such, cartridge recycling is provided at no charge, throughout the world, for the life of the press. The result is less solid waste with fewer resources consumed.
