The smallest high capacity printer in its class!

The CP-M1A Dye Sub Photo Booth Printer delivers exceptional print quality, a printing volume up to 750 prints (4×6″) and a new quick and easy media loading design. The  result is a very powerful printer model, saving time and operational cost. The CP-M1A elevates the high capacity dye-sub printer category to a new level with exceptional print quality.

Designed with Mitsubishi Electric’s proprietary print-head control engine & image processing algorithms, the CP-M1A prints high definition photos and delivers superior color depth and extremely detailed output in bright and dark prints.

This commercial printer is conceived for use in photo studios and other businesses. Particular focus is placed on easy operability so that technically less-versed users are able, if necessary, to exchange elements like printer cartridges or paper. The printer can be opened by hand to gain access to the ink cartridges, paper and also the dust box where paper shavings are collected. A reduced design with straight surfaces and clear lines was chosen to make it evident at first glance where the device can be opened. Attention is directed to the clearly labelled handle.
