Below you will find the most frequently asked printing questions about the Handheld SP500X ScanPrinter.
- How many prints?
This is highly dependent on the label size, content, and print density. For our demo label, you can expect ~5,000 prints. Example demo label below:
- Can it print on wet materials?
Not well. Wet cardboard would be okay with degradation in print quality. Wet plastics would not work.
- Is this a special ink?
Yes, designed in collaboration with HP for this device. This cartridge is unique to SP500X and is only sold by Handheld.
- How long does it take to dry?
Almost immediately on paper media. Dries, but can be wiped off if rubbed (think dry eraser) on more plastic media.
- Can I use a standard HP cartridge in the device?
No, the ink cartridge and ink combination was designed specifically for SP500X and the unit will reject any other HP cartridges.
