4CP Printers

Below are the various different printers and processes that we utlize to print multiple colors. But you don’t have to worry about knowing which one would be best for your application – that is what our experts are for.

HP Scitex FB700

This 4CP printer has a large flatbed and it can both fit and print on a 4′ x 8′ piece of plywood. It can even print on material that is up to 2″ thick. Needless to say, this printer is ideal for large or rigid material like wood or metal. Also, its ink is UV resistant, so it is great for outdoor durability as well.

HP Indigo 5600

While the Scitex is ideal for large, rigid material, the Indigo is perfect for detail. This printer is used for jobs that have variable data and/or require clear print that is very small. The size is limited to less than .020″ thick and 12″ x 18″ flats and the material itself varies, including:

  • Vinyl
  • Polyester
  • Polycarbonate
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Paper

Mimaki

The Mimaki is one of our go-to printers for anything that is vinyl and/or adhesive backed. It is also great for large format printing because the rolls used are 54″ wide. This printer is used for vinyl labels and banners and the ink has excellent outdoor durability.

QNP has multiple screen print machines to produce 4CP products

Screen Printing

We have multiple screen printing machines in our factory and they are a very good, durable option for anywhere from 1 – 4 colors. The maximum imprint area for screen printing is 40″ x 24″ and we can print on a wide variety of materials, including:

  • Aluminum
  • Brass
  • Steel
  • Vinyl
  • Polycarbonate

Markem

In some cases old technology is better than modern technology, and that is the case with this machine. It is not digital at all, but it is able to produce 2 color labels, laminate them, die cut them and remove the excess material, all at once. There is no other machine that we have come across to do this as effectively, which is why it is still part of our printing toolkit.

GErber Edge

This printer is a little different than the others in that it uses heat to print in 4CP, which is why it is also called a thermal transfer printer. It is great for vinyl adhesive backed labels that need simple, solid colors. The print area is limited to 13.5″ because that is the width of a roll, but this little printer is extremely efficient and has a built in die cutter so that labels are printed and can then be cut by the same machine.

QNP makes a wide variety of products in not just 4CP, but spot colors as well.  Products like nameplates, labels (warning, overlays, component identification), and tags (valve, asset, custom).

What is the production time of 4CP products?

Is there a size limit to the 4CP products you can produce?

That truly depends on the material you need. We can print on a rigid surface that is as big as 4′ x 8′ and we can print on vinyl up to 54″ wide. If you need something with very fine detail, the max size is 12″ x 18″.
