Making Color Printing Affordable

The QL-240 is a cost effective, wide format, tabletop color label production system ideally suited for label printing within the facilities of brand owners, print shops or manufacturers. It is a great starter printer for those who want to start printing their own labels or to introduce inkjet label technology for reducing costs of ribbon, print head and service. The QL-240 is a smart alternative to expensive, pre-printed labels and thermal transfer labels allowing for production color labels instead of one-color or black & white labels.


Designed with the user in mind, the QL-240 optimizes the LEAN process by creating smooth and flexible production in-house with its user friendly interface. A versatile system for almost any market, the printer’s fast speed allows users to reduce inventory and quickly produce vibrant high resolution labels on a just-in-time basis.

*Price includes printer, Windows® printer driver, unwinder, printhead, and cables
