The Mitsubishi photo printers use for colour prints the dye-sublimation technology. The thermal head in the printer burn the ink on the paper.
The overcoat which is also on the ink ribbon protects the print form discoloration from UV, light and the air and makes the print water-resistant.The size of the ink sheet maximize the format of the print. Paper with sheets of 15x20 cm / 6x8” can for example also print 2 photo’s of 10x15 / 4x6”. The cutter in the prints cuts the photo’s on the right size. For the Black & White printers we use thermal paper.
