Inventor Paul Onish (Princeton, New Jersey) has been awarded a U.S. Patent (#9,747,531) for his unique design of a flatbed desktop envelope printer. The low-cost device is aimed at Small and Medium Businesses (SMB’s) and Home-Office-Based Businesses (HOBB’s).
It can also be built to meet specific market needs. Its design is now available for license consideration by any manufacturer, retailer or distributor that has a large base of SMB and/or HOBB customers. The new printer was recently upgraded to accommodate 3” to 11” manila envelopes.
“Multiple software companies that print documents and envelopes globally have told us that they have no issue in modifying their printer drivers to accommodate this new flatbed printer,” said Onish. “This is true for the North American market (including the SMB and HOBB segments) and globally, on all continents. As long as they have software that can print envelopes, this patented product has the ability to print an envelope faster, cheaper and without labels or paper crushes.”
Other key features include:
- Holds 500 envelopes (#10 or various European sizes) in its rear, adjustable cartridge tray.
- Accommodates multiple-sized envelopes.
- Can be rotated 90 degrees to print on large 11”x14” manila envelopes.
- Eliminates the need for users to swap-out copy paper and insert envelopes as needed to print, then return paper to continue document printing.
- Prints on paper from 20 lb. up to 200 lb.
- Its standalone flatbed engine can be either an inkjet device or a laser device.
- It can print an address, a return address and a USPS electronic postage stamp in about two seconds without crushing, crunching or crumbling the paper.
- Wi-Fi enabled, it can operate using standard USB 2 or USB 3.
- Also uses a low-voltage power supply.
