Print Square, Photo Prints

Square prints have been an option on roll dye sub printers for some time, now that they have become more popular we just wanted to remind owners that many printers can achieve this for you.

DNP recently released firmware and drivers for the RX1HS and DS620A printers for 6×6 on the RX1 with 6×8 media and 5×5 on 5×7 and 6×6 on 6×8 media for the DS620A. Visit the official DNP support page for the latest firmware and drivers

On the Mitsubishi printers, the CP-K60DW-S and CP-D90DW do 5×5 on 5×7 and 6×6 on 6×8.

The CP-D70DW only does 6×6 on 6×8. The CPD70DW does not do 5×5 at all.

The Sinfonia CE1, the DNP DS80 and DNP 820A can cut 8×8 on 8×10 media.

The FujiFilm DX100 printer has 4”, 5”, 6” and 8” wide paper. It can print from 3 ½” to 39” long. It can easily print, 4×4 on 4” paper, 5×5 on 5” paper, 6×6 on 6” paper and 8×8 on 8” paper.

The 4×6 media comes out of the printer horizontally which is why you can print and cut 2-2×6. You cannot cut a 4×4 on 4×6 media on any dye sub printer. To cut 6×6 square prints you need 6×8 media and to print 5×5, you need 5×7 media. Your software must be able to send a square print to the printer. You cannot send a 6×8 photo to a printer set to 6×6 as it may either not print and error out or cut in an odd place.
