When it comes to label printing, businesses have a wide range of options available to compare. NeuraLabel offers two popular label printers – the Callisto and the Sirius. While both printers are designed to provide high-quality, full-color label printing solutions, they have different features and benefits that make them suitable for different applications.

Compare Callisto vs. Sirius

Compare Printing Technology

The Callisto is an inkjet label printer that uses high-speed, water-based pigment ink to produce high-quality, durable labels. It can print at speeds of up to 12 inches per second, making it ideal for businesses with high-volume label printing needs. The Callisto uses a roll-to-roll printing method, which allows for continuous printing of long runs of labels without the need for manual intervention.

The Sirius, on the other hand, is a toner-based label printer that uses white toner technology to print full-color labels. It has a printing speed of up to 6 inches per second and can print on a wide range of label substrates and colors, including paper, synthetic materials, and polyester. Since the Sirius uses LED-based technology, it is compatible with many inexpensive uncoated substrates.

Compare Label Size and Quantity

The Callisto is designed for commercial-grade label printing, making it ideal for businesses that need to print large quantities of labels in various sizes. It can print labels up to 12 inches wide and supports label rolls with up to a 12-inch outer diameter. This means that businesses can print a high volume of labels without having to constantly reload the printer. This large width and the outside diameter are also well suited with a finishing system for mid to high-volume print shop applications.

The Sirius, on the other hand, is a table-top printer designed for small to medium-sized label printing jobs. It can print rolled labels up to 5 inches wide with up to an 8-inch outside diameter. With it’s on-the-fly cutter that allows for cutting one label at a time, this flexible solution is a workhorse for small to mid-volume runs.

Compare Printing Quality

Both the Callisto and Sirius produce high-quality, full-color labels with crisp and vibrant images. The Callisto uses water-based pigment ink, which produces long-lasting, smudge-resistant labels that are resistant to fading and water damage. The Sirius’ toner based technology also produces high-quality durable labels. And with its white toner technology, allows for vibrant color printing on dark, colored, and metallic label substrates.

The Callisto features an intuitive user interface and comes with an easy-to-use driver that allows businesses to design and print labels quickly and easily. The printer hardware is easy to set up and start printing. NeuraLabel provides a number of setup videos to help with any questions along the way.

In summary, both the Callisto and Sirius are high-quality label printers that offer different features and benefits. The Callisto is designed for high-volume, commercial-grade label printing, while the Sirius is ideal for medium-sized label high-quality printing jobs. The Callisto uses inkjet printing technology and can print labels of various sizes, while the Sirius uses white toner technology to enhance pops of color on dark substrates.
