Create Print and Cut Graphics with One Awesome Machine
Not only does the BN-20 print quality graphics up to 1440 dpi, but it cuts them as well! This means you can create labels, decals, t-shirt transfers and other products that are cut to the unique compositions of your designs. You can also print and cut laminated graphics as part of a Quadralign® optical registration system workflow that automatically compensates for skew and distortion— remove your prints, laminate them and reload them for cutting.

Simplify Graphics with Easy RIP Software and Operation
The BN-20 has been engineered to make print production easy for users of all skill levels. In addition to a simplified control panel for operating your device, it includes VersaWorks 6 RIP software for managing all your print and cut output. With a user-friendly drag-and-drop interface and powerfully simple RIP production tools, it takes all the complexity out of digital printing.
