Lexmark P350 applies new ink technology, paper system for exceptional quality photos






PRESS SUMMARY

All about the new Lexmark P350 Photo PrinterLexmark International, Inc. today introduced the Lexmark P350 Portable Photo Printer, featuring new Evercolor II ink technology, and PerfectFinishTM Photo Paper as part of a photo printing system that produces photos of exceptional quality and durability.  The Lexmark P350 has an estimated street price of $129*.

The first to feature Lexmark's new Evercolor II pigmented ink technology, the Lexmark P350 4-by-6 inch photo printer produces vibrant, borderless photos that print in as little as 75 seconds** with up to 4,800 x 1,200 dots per inch resolution.

Evercolor II is a pigment-based ink system that is meant to be used with Lexmark's new PerfectFinish Photo Paper, a micro-porous photo paper that absorbs the inks quickly. Compared with conventional dye-based inks, the Evercolor II pigmented inks dry more quickly and are highly resistant to water. Together, Lexmark's Evercolor II inks and PerfectFinish Photo Paper yield high-quality photos that are remarkably resilient and durable – lasting for up to 100 years in a frame and up to 200 years in an album***.

"The Lexmark P350 delivers powerful ink technology in a compact, portable package," said Najib Bahous, Lexmark vice president and president of its Consumer Printer Division. "With the Lexmark P350, photo enthusiasts and amateur photographers alike can produce lab-quality photos that are rich in color and far more durable and lasting.”

Small and stylish, the Lexmark P350 is tough enough for everyday use, with an array of features that allows consumers to view, edit, print, save, organize and share their digital photos. It operates either as a stand-alone unit or connected to a PC or Mac.

Consumers can print directly from memory cards, PictBridgeTM compatible digital cameras, a USB flash drive or, with the purchase of an optional adapter, from a Bluetooth technology cell phone.

The large, adjustable 2.4-inch color display makes it easy to edit photos, using one-touch color fix and red eye reduction and the application of sepia, antique gray, antique brown and black and white effects. In addition, the Lexmark P350 is equipped with Lexmark's exclusive Fast Pics software to help users to enhance, print and manage their photos quickly and easily.
