Dye Sub Photo Printing

The best choice for quality and efficiency.

Imaging Spectrum has a dye-sub photo printer solution to meet your workflow needs and your  budget. Dye-sub printers use a dye-diffusion process that combines a dry ink-dye ribbon with matching thermal photo paper rolls to produce high quality photos in just seconds. Unlike inkjet or laser, dye-sub printers produce photos quickly and reliably that are dry to the touch and ready to handle right out of the printer. Additionally, dye-sub photos have a predictable cost per print and come in common photo sizes including 4x6, 5x7, 6x8, 8x10, 8x12. Many dye-sub printer models will produce specialty sizes such as 2x6 and 2x8 for photo booths and 4x8 for greeting cards.

Dye-sub printers are easy to transport and a breeze to maintain. This makes them great for applications where mobility is key such as on-site printing events, corporate photo marketing, photo booths, attraction and amusement park photo printing. Their quick speed, reliability and predictable cost per print make dye-sub the printers of choice for Santa Claus photography, Old-time portrait studios, passport photos and retail portrait studios. We carry printers from all the leading dye-sub manufacturers. Our warehouse and buying power enable us to offer you a competitive price, reliable inventory and same day shipping.

From our customers

By far the best place to source dye sub printers and media. Steve Behen & Co is the bees knees. This company has helped me make the best printer investment for 10+ projects already, and will be my sole source in the future.

I bought a dye-sub from these guys a couple of weeks ago completely "anonymously" via the web: never asked a question, never asked for help... just a ghost of a customer. Well, they just called out of the blue, wanted to be sure everything arrived in good order and to make sure I didn't have any questions. Just amazing in this day and age!
