CDArtist VI CD/DVD printer

Professional-Quality Color

Industry Leader in Full-color CD DVD Print Precision

The CD ARTIST is a sound, durable, and highly crafted and engineered CD ink jet printer with incredible precision. A must for those who want the best full bleed, edge-to-edge graphics coverage.

The CD-ARTIST is a robust, industrial strength, front load CD ink jet printer with our proprietary-design disc locking mechanism for precision based CD printing.
Based on the sturdy HP printer engine, this printer offers precision registration and full bleed, edge-to-edge printing for the most discriminating of customers.

This disc printer is perfect for service bureaus and others who must print complete graphic art on the entire printable surface of any optical disc.

Equipped with a USB port, and a parallel port, the CD ARTIST can be used with any reputable graphics application, and is PC Windows (95,98, ME, 2000, and NT) and Mac compatible (iMac; G3, G4).

Full Color, Front Loading CD/DVD Printer

With enhanced PhotoREt color layering technology, color optimization and color resolution technologies,
the results are sharper images, natural skin tones and brilliant colors on any inkjet printable CD DVD surface – results that addressable dots per inch, alone, cannot accomplish.

Low-ink indicators protect against wasted discs ("coasters") and improve performance.
A new Trace Affex engineering innovation allows for multiple copy CD DVD printing without ever having to press a "load" button.

The printer automatically senses when a printed CD DVD has been removed, and when the next blank disc has been placed in the tray.

Once the next disc is in place, the printer resumes the print job!

The printer uses standard HP inks, easily available at the local office supply store, so that if the printer runs out of ink, the customer does not have to wait two days for the FedEx truck to bring the replacement ink cartridges.

Join the 1,000's... the US Printing Office, NASA, the US Air force, Army, & Navy, Microsoft, Intel, Lockheed, Texaco, Mitsui, Kodak, Warner Bros. Records, Nickelodeon, Disney Imagineering and many more who have chosen and continue to rely upon Trace Affex products for speed and versatility.
