You can deliver prints on-demand with Citizen's new CY-02 dye sub photo printer
Printer manufacturer Citizen claims its new CY-02 dye sublimation printer offers event photographers and enprint producers a quick, low-cost way to print out photos on-demand.
The relatively small and portable new printer can output a 6x4in print in less than 15 seconds in high-speed mode with a media cost of just 7.2p (approx $0.09) per print. Fed with a roll of 6in paper, the CY-02 can turn out either 6x4in, 7x5in or 8x6in pictures, and users can switch between gloss and matte finishes without changing the paper.
In high speed print mode, the printer uses a resolution of 300x300dpi, which is increased to 300x600dpi in high resolution mode. In high resolution mode a 6x4in print takes less than 20 seconds to produce, while a 7x5in print takes less than 31 seconds and an 8x6in print less than 35 seconds. In other words: no matter what mode you're using, this is a fast printer.
Citizen says the CY-02 is designed to deliver profit and that its media costs less than that of any other dye sublimation machine. Media packs consist of two rolls of paper and a pair of YMC-plus-overcoat ribbons designed for specific print sizes. Each 6x4in roll creates 700 prints while rolls for 7x5in or 8x6in prints create 350 each.
The CY-02 measures 322 x 351 x 281mm or 12.67 x 13.82 x 11.06in and weighs 18kg or about 40lbs fully loaded. It costs £660/€799, or approximately $710 USD, and media packs start at £108.90/€137.45, or approximately $117 USD.

Citizen Photo Announces the CY- 02 Photo Printer
Citizen Photo, manufacturers of market-leading dye sublimation (dye sub) printers and media for the event photography and retail photo-finishing markets, has announced the latest photo printer in their trusted line up; the CY-02, and whilst stocks last, a FREE, high quality Citizen branded carry bag, worth €100.
Developed as an extension of the hugely popular Citizen CY printer, itself a high capacity, reliable, robust, simple to use, tried & tested photo printer; the new CY-02 offers improved output speeds.
Improved output speed
The improved speed of the new CY-02 will be most noticeable for those printing high volumes of 6x8” prints who can now print 3 prints per minute, compared to 2 prints per minute that can be expected from the standard CY photo printer.
The large media capacity and exceptional ease of use make the CY-02 the perfect dye sublimation photo printer for applications where infrequent media replenishment is a priority, such as retail outlets, event photographers and photobooth operators and amusement parks. With more prints possible due to the media capacity and easy media changing, the robust CY-02 printer ensures users spend less time servicing the printer and more time focusing on their customers.
The CY-02 produces 700 4x6” (10x15cm) or 350 6x8” (15x20cm) prints per roll while monitoring tools and drivers ensure users are in complete control of all printer functions at all times.
Gary Andrews, EMEA Business Manager, Photo Printers, Citizen Systems Europe, said:
"The arrival of the CY-02 photo printer is significant for those whose business requires both speed and a large media capacity. The CY-02 not only delivers on these promises, it offers excellent print quality and reliability too".
Being a Citizen Photo product, users can be assured of market-leading levels of technological and engineering excellence.
With almost 100 years of experience, Citizen has a rich heritage in precision engineering across many markets. Once such market, and perhaps the most familiar in the consumer market, is the watch division. What is less familiar to those working in the photo sector is that the same precision engineering approach that is adopted for watch design and manufacture, is also applied to the mechanics of the internal systems in Citizen Photo printers. Something that really sets the brand apart from the competition with regards to reliability and quality.

Two finishing options: choose between a glossy or matte surface finish
