Create Print and Cut Graphics
with One Awesome Machine

Not only does the BN-20 print quality graphics up to 1440 dpi, but it cuts them as well! This means you can create labels, decals, t-shirt transfers and other products that are cut to the unique compositions of your designs. You can also print and cut laminated graphics as part of a Quadralign® optical registration system workflow that automatically compensates for skew and distortion— remove your prints, laminate them and reload them for cutting.
