Sure Shot: Epson Updates Speedy Event Printer

June 11, 2019

By Greg Scoblete

Epson has pulled back the curtain on an update to its SureLab event printer.

The new SureLab D870 uses Epson UltraChrome D6r-S six color, dye-based inks. Unlike many event printers, the D870 uses inkjet, not dye sublimation, technology.

You’ll hit print speeds of up to 430 4 x 6-, 275 5 x 7-, or 140 8 x 10-inch photos per hour.

The D870 accepts square and panoramic media with a minimum width of 3.5 inches and a maximum size of 8.3 x 39 inches (and everything in between). It can print on glossy, luster and matte surfaces.

The printer weighs in just north of 50 pounds, before ink and media are loaded in, making it one of the heavier event printers on the market.

The SureLab D870 Minilab printer costs $2,495 and is available now.
