SQ/2 Dot Matrix Printer for Bags & Cartons

The SQ/2 ink jet printing system allows manufacturers to print high quality dot-matrix characters on bags and cartons.  The SQ/2 offers the lowest price per-printed-character in the industry!

We recommend the water-based system for printing on porous surfaces like paper PBOM bags and corrugated cartons.  And solvent-based inks for printing on glossy and other laminated surfaces.

The SQ/2 system can usually be installed directly on your bag sealer to print information on the bag while it is still in the sealer!
