Small Footprint, New Business: The Noritsu D502 Duplex Printer
In days when many retailers are considering any and all possible sources of extra income, Noritsu America is introducing a new dry-lab printer they hope will entice businesspeople into the photo printing business.
The new D502 Duplex Printer is about the size of a typical copy machine, but, at $35,000, is actually an entire photo printing solution, able to produce double-sided, high-res products such as photobooks, calendars, posters, signs, scrapbooks, cards and banners.
Gregory Joe, Noritsu America's marketing manager, says the D502 is aimed at retailers who might not have been in the photo business before, from independent CE operations to gift shop or bookstore owners. "This is a workhorse printer," said Joe. "And it plays well with others, [from kiosks to binding machines]." Joe says the Noritsu D502 will be available in the U.S. in the second half of 2009.
