SureLab D1070-Series Professional Minilab Photo Printers

Epson America Inc. announced the SureLab® D1070 and SureLab D1070DE drylab printers built for high-volume photo and graphic production. Designed for retail, event and e-commerce applications, the SureLab D1070DE adds a duplex feeder to provide automatic double-sided printing on sheet media to use for photobooks, greeting cards, invitations, postcards, and more.

The SureLab D1070 Minilab printer will be available in fall 2021 for a $2,595 estimated MSRP and the SureLab D1070DE will be available in 2022 for a $2,995 estimated MSRP. A $599 duplex feeder will be available for purchase separately to add double-sided printing to the SureLab D1070.

“Small-format, tangible photography and graphics are just as popular as ever as people seek out personalized photo products and localized graphics and stationery as mementos of special moments and annual celebrations,” said Aaron Brill, associate product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “The SureLab D1070-Series supports a variety of production environments, including photography labs, retail kiosks and gift shops.
