Citizen CX key features

Dust free printing

Citizen CX was designed with an internal print path to prevent dust being pulled into the printer. Dust causes unsightly white blemishes on the print and is often problem with other dye sub printers when operated in a dusty environment.

Compact and lightweight

Weighing in at a mere 14kg (without media loaded) and with a space-saving 322 x 366 x 170 mm volume, the CX is easy to transport and will fit into almost any cramped or tight space! Citizen CX and CX-W printers are also stackable i.e. you can stack two or even three printers one on top of the other to save even more counter space.


High speed uninterrupted printing

The CX was born for high-speed, high-performance printing. Print 4x6" prints in a blistering 8.0 seconds (buffer time will always depend on image file size) while the computer aided design of the CX's internal airflow and heat ducting will ensure hours of uninterrupted printing without overheating.


Professional quality prints

Citizen systems have been involved in the manufacture of digital printing solutions since before the first ever digital printers were even commercially available! Culminating in years of experience, the CX printer delivers premium quality prints with wide tonal range, smooth gradiated colour and high dynamic range.



Print glossy or matter finish prints without even changing the paper media. It's all controlled by the printer driver and temperature of the thermal print head.


Colour management

The CX prints perfectly straight out of the box however it's colour ICC profile can also be customised for expert colour management purposes (Managing colour workflow should be attempted by an experienced colour professional ONLY).


High archival quality

The protective lamination layer present in all CX prints maximises resistance to colour fading, fingerprints, liquids, ozone dust and the effects of UV radiation.


Simple and easy operation

The Citizen CX printer employs front-loading, cartridge based media that makes it exceptionally easy to use especially when working in a busy, high-pressure production environment.
