8" Large format, roll-fed dye-sublimation digital printer

The S1245 printer balances high-speed, high capacity, and low cost. The roll media yields 280 8"x10" prints, which is over 5 times the capacity of most cut sheet printers. The S1245 printer is ideal for use in kiosks and high productivity locations. Multiple printers can be daisy chained for even higher capacity. The S1245 printer can operate unattended for over two hours without the need to change paper or ribbons, as is the case with comparable cut sheet printers.

The S1245 printer is based on dry (Dye Sublimation) technology; therefore, it can be used virtually anywhere. It is ideally suited to produce both instant enlargements and package prints for portrait photographers. Weighing only 61 lbs., it can be used as a portable solution for event photographers as well.

High Speed

A professional quality photo is produced in as little as 30 seconds, with as many as 120 prints per hour, that’s 2-3 times faster than most comparable cut-sheet printers. The roll media yields 280 8"x10" prints, which is over 5 times the capacity of most cut sheet printers.


Dye-sublimation media incorporates a specialized over-coat process that features exceptional durability with strong resistance to light, heat, stains and fingerprints.
