Premium quality large-format printing for professionals


Enlargements are special and print quality is therefore of paramount importance when printing them. Citizen’s CX-W produces high resolution, premium quality large-format prints with superior dynamic range and wider colour gamut than other large format printers. Due to its high speed, compact design and superior print quality the Citizen CX-W is therefore ideal for:

•   Printing portraits, medium to large groups and proofs
•   Printing enlargements onsite (schools, events, receptions, fundraisers etc.)
•   Printing enlargements in-store (retail)
•   Government and other commercial or industrial applications



Key features

Compact and lightweight

Citizen’s CX-W large-format printer is smaller and lighter than even most standard size photo printers which means you can essentially take your print studio wherever you like. Citizen CX and CX-W printers are identical in shape and size which means they are stackable to save counter space and also make the perfect pair.


High-speed printing

Printing photo enlargements is often a slow process but at roughly 30.2 seconds* for an 8x10” or 35.2 seconds* for an 8x12” print it is hardly an issue for Citizen’s CX-W!

*   Print times will vary depending on image file size


Premium print quality

Photo enlargements are usually intended for display. The Citizen CX-W boasts high resolution, high dynamic range and wider colour gamut than other large-format printers which means you can offer you customers a product to be proud of.


Dust free printing

Dust can cause unsightly white blemishes on your prints, a problem frequently associated with other dye sub printers but the Citizen CXW utilises an internal print path preventing dust from being drawn into the printer while printing.



The CX-W also produces a beautiful matte finish and you do not even have to change media when switching from glossy printing as the print finish is all cleverly controlled via the CX-W’s printer driver by simply varying the temperature of the thermal print head.


Easy media loading

The CX-W has a front loading media compartment which means changing media is quick, simple and especially useful when working in a stressful, high-pressure production environment.


Cross platform

Citizen's CY printer is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems. Please contact sales or support for our most up to date driver information.
