Photos or Stickers - One Printer

Imagine being able to print photos or photo quality stickers from the same printer. Now you can. Available now from Imaging Spectrum, the Brava 21 utilizes standard and proven dye-sub printer technology that can print on regular dye-sub photo quality paper or print on photo quality sticker media. Some of our key accounts have been asking for just such a printer for over a year now and we finally found a printer that meets our demands for high quality at a reasonable price. Photo stickers have been wildly popular in Japan for several years – now that popularity is starting to catch on in the US market. Visit the photo booth of your local mall or amusement park and you are likely to find photo stickers as an option.

For any photography business, whether event photography, wedding and party photo booths, photo marketing, or senior portraits, the flexibility and creativity of stickers can set your business apart and help you sell more. For example:

  • 2×6 photo booth strips, one strip for guest, one strip to stick to photo album for bride and groom.
  • Create custom shaped photo stickers for parties and events with hand held die cutters.
  • Mix photos, marketing messages and branding with stickers – we’ve had requests for ski helmets, skate boards, back of cell phones, running events, school lockers, bumper stickers; the list goes on.
  • No longer a lab-only product, you can now offer seniors or children photo stickers on the spot.

This would be a 5 star printer IF they fixed their drivers to make the device more user friendly to install. This printer is now our back up just because I hate fighting to install it on our computers. Also would be nice if it was mac compatible. It is also louder then our other machines.

Advantages: Can print stickers, very durable, and prints fast.

Disadvantages: Virtually impossible to install on a modern computer if you are not a computer tech. Printer is loud and shakes a 4' folding table when printing.

Got this printer with my turnkey photo booth system back in Nov 2015. So far I love it and hopefully with be getting another one as my backup soon. I've had no issues with it that were major (ribbon torn on my first event).

Advantages: Durable and versatility with paper sizes. I'm told it's the only one that does sticker media in the market.

Disadvantages: Needs a constant level of power otherwise the ribbon can (and does) tear.

The printer works well. But if I'd known that the drive would sometimes have to reinstalled when Microsoft 10 updates, I would not have bought it.

Advantages: Make great prints and it is fast.

Disadvantages: If you have Microsoft 10, don't buy this printer!

This is a great printer when it works. The installation of drivers can be a little daunting to figure out, but anyone even remotely knowledgeable with Windows should have no real issues with it.

Advantages: Prints quickly, is durable, great service with IS.

Disadvantages: The cutter, while very useful, cuts st a weird angle sometimes meaning that you could have weird white stripes at either side of a strip or the template could be running between the prints. The print head dies after 2 years every single time. I'm now on my 7th printer purchased (we operate a few photobooths) and that has been my experience every time. It's cheaper to replace than repair the print head. If you need this to last more than two years, look elsewhere.
