QUICKLABEL Printers

Astronova’s QuickLabel® division is the leading manufacturer of production-capacity, full-color digital label printers, barcode printers, media and labeling software that allow businesses to print their own labels on-demand.

QuickLabel introduced the first tabletop digital color label printer and continues to innovate labeling solutions specifically for manufacturers and processors who want to print product labels in-house.

QL-300 - CMYK + WHITE Toner-Based Digital Label Printer

The QL-300 is the world’s first 5-color toner-based tabletop label printer from QuickLabel that enables brand owners to achieve vibrant, unique, and impactful branding that drives product sales.

  • Set your brand apart with CMYK + WHITE high-resolution 1200 dpi durable, vibrantly printed labels
  • Ensure a competitive cost of ownership with long-lasting cartridges and toner that delivers the utmost durability, water-fastness, and UV-resistance
  • Eliminate label waste with high precision built-in cutter

Developed with proven, reliable digital LED EP (electrophotographic) printing technology, the QL-300 is the first 5-color desktop label printer to deliver exceptionally durable and vibrant color labels, with the added capability of printing white. This capability opens up a realm of possibilities for product branding, allowing the user to print on a wide variety of cost-effective transparent, colored and metallic paper and synthetic label materials in a single pass.

Going beyond the standard 4-color CMYK printing process, the addition of printing white provides an opaque background for transparent materials, expanding the possibilities for personal care product, food & beverage product labeling and more. Printing white also presents new creative options when used on black or other colored materials, including metallic silver and gold. The QL-300 even allows users to achieve a “spot UV” sheen or varnished appearance when printing black and other colors onto a colored matte substrate.

QuickLabel’s long product life, premium printing supplies, and unmatched service and support guarantee your QL-300 delivers exceptionally durable and vibrant labels, while also ensuring your brand commands the attention it deserves.

Every QL-300 also includes one free license to CQL Pro, our advanced labeling software, which allows users to effortlessly design, manage and print their labels.
