Bring your ideas to life is never impossible with PrintPen!
How does PrintPen help Product Designer visualize imaginations? Here is @Yuske's thoughts and prints:
We’ve creatively adapted the design to include two notable features that were missing in many printers.
With 26mm super large print head, you can print wider text or artwork at once. Best for business application, example: QR CODE.
To increase usability, the self-developed ink cartridge can be filled with non-standard ink options such as: fluorescent ink, non-erasable ink (ECO-solvent ink), etc. This is made possible due to special printhead-chip and ink cartridge design crafted by our professional team.
We offer 4 types of ink and 2 types of ink cartridges, entry-level cartridges that use erasable inks, and professional-grade cartridges for permanent inks.
Remove the used-up cartridge out from the ink slot and fit in a new one on the same place.
We’ve highlighted the starting point of the inkjet nozzle with a corner on the housing of PrintPen to help you quickly master the printing position.
PrintPen is a portable printer, with a housing made of aviation-grade CNC-machine aluminum alloy to ensure stability. It comes with mechanical rollers, that makes printing smooth and refined for any materials and surfaces.
With a compact size of 17.4cm x 5.3cm x 3cm, PrintPen is small enough for you to handle a big printing job even on-the-go.

Risks and challenges
The major challenges of hardware product development have three aspects: 1. Research and development, 2. Mass production, 3. Delivery.
Although this is our first time to join the Kickstarter community, in the past two years or so, we have sold more than 10,000 other special printers - food printers specifically, around the world. Our core R&D team includes experts in automation control, inkjet printing, and semiconductors, but also have accumulated rich R&D experience from the development of previous food printer projects.
PrintPen is an innovative product that has been completely redefined. The challenges in the production process are mainly from the infusion and transportation of fully self-developed ink cartridges and inks. But thanks to the trustworthy suppliers and our past production experiences we were able to eliminate previous errors in judgment. Additionally, in order to ensure high quality and durability, we choose Foxconn as our supplier. With their support, PrintPen has the production quality similar to that of an Apple laptop.
According to our experience, certifications such as FCC/CE will become a barrier to entry in some countries and regions, so our product is already undergoing certification testing. This will ensure that shipments in major regions are not delayed due to certification issues.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
