Printing Badges & IDs a Breeze with the Canon CX-G6400

canon cxg6400

When printing mass quantities of badges, ID cards, press passes and/or customized cards, we need a few things, namely speed, efficiency, accuracy, reliability, and quality printing. 

If we’re still using old machines, we might experience printhead malfunctions, sloppy printing, slow-print times, and general frustration. And issues can become major headaches if they impact operations, security, safety, etc. So we need a printer solution that can handle printing at scale; huge volumes of badges and plastic cards. 

Printing with a third-party vendor may involved long lead times and costly delays.

Enter the Canon CX-G6400 Card & Badge Printer. It makes photo-quality images on paper and plastic cards with speed and efficiency. 

It can produce 2,700 plastic cards per hour with colorful sharp and crisp graphics at an impressive 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution. 

Each card prints out in 12 seconds or less, and the machine features USB and ethernet connectivity and uses dye-based inks for superior print quality. No more worries about misprinted text or malfunctioning barcodes or QR codes.

With a two year warranty and robust extended service options, it’s built to last for years.

Perfect for:

Concert badges | press passes | event badges | oversized passes | business cards | envelopes | custom product inserts
