Vibrant outdoor graphics that never need UV lamination, die-cut and ready-to-install

What good is print and cut if you have to laminate? Not much, for what many sign companies do most: permanent signs and vehicle graphics. That’s the real difference between thermal resin and every other type of printing. With thermal transfer, images are installation-ready. So you just print, weed and apply.

Like its predecessor, Summa DC3 Plus, the new 54-inch, 8-color Summa DC4 prints images that are guaranteed outdoor-durable for up to 5 years without lamination. And of course, auto ribbon changing and ultra precise contour cutting built right in. But our 4th generation DC-class printer does so much more. It accepts variable width media from 24 to 54 inches wide. And it has a host of new printing modes for higher resolution, faster printing and for printing on specialty films, including banner material.

Best of all, the new Summa DC4 is just as affordable as our older Summa DC3 Plus. Only $19,995, including our blazing-fast ColorControl RIP software.

The built-in ribbon-changer holds up to 8 high-capacity SmartRibbon™ cassettes. Each cassette can accommodate any ribbon color, and the printer intelligently identifies the ribbon color, location and usage.

The OptiPrint™ media pre-cleaning system removes dust and debris that can cause image flaws. It delivers optimal print quality in a unique process that cleans the media immediately before the color pass is printed.

Our media roll flanges work with the supply and take-up rollers. They attach to any width roll in seconds. Or with shorter print-run, the standard media baskets keep your prints clean and organized.
