Introducing the Roland LEF-200 and Roland LEF-12i Flatbed UV Printers


The new Roand LEF-200, a 20-inch flatbed UV printer will replace the LEF-20, and boasts a new on-board primer option which makes priming objects for improved ink adhesion easier than ever. The LEF-200 also includes VersaWorks® Dual RIP software, allowing for better handling of PDF and PostScript files (including files with transparencies), as well as the ability to setup special color layers like White, Gloss and Primer directly in the RIP.

5 Reasons to upgrade to the Brady BMP61

upgrade tls

Here are the top 5 reasons to upgrade to the Brady BMP61 Label Printer


  1. Vibrant color touch screen – see the entire label and preview your text layout before you print. Tape color is displayed in the preview window to verify supplies that are intended are loaded.
  2. Super fast printing speeds – improving on last generation print technology the BMP61 takes print speeds nearly 3X faster. This means more labels in less time and longer battery life.
  3. Easier material loading – with an improved wider loading area and new cartridges with supports on both sides of the roll the BMP61 is easier to load and that means less time spent changing out supplies.
  4. QWERTY Keyboard – familiar keyboard layout means less time hunting for keys and more time to do other things.
  5. Higher print resolution – Improved print resolution of 300 dpi means sharper text. It also means smaller text is more readable.

To make the switch contact us or purchase the BMP61 online with fast free shipping.
