Rimage Printers


The Everest Encore thermal retransfer print technology delivers durable CD / DVD /Blu-ray Disc™ labeling, with the highest print resolution in the industry.


Each printer is also available as an AutoPrinter model to deliver professional-looking printed disc labels, under robotic control, when discs only need to be labeled. Three 100-disc input bins enable efficient production of jobs from 1 to 300 discs without user intervention.

Autoprinter models are particularly effective when using duplication towers to make discs, with volunteer or inexpensive labor to insert discs into an autoprinter for professional high-quality printing. Markets such as religion and education, as well as service bureaus and publishing/print shops, select Rimage Autoprinters to professionally finish their discs.

Make a great impression.

With Rimage thermal ribbons, you get the very best from your Everest printer. The three-paneled CMY ribbons make full-color artwork come to life with levels of sharpness and detail unique to Rimage printers. For black and white images or simple black text, monochrome ribbons are ideal for high resolution, full-coverage, and superior grayscale printing. Retransfer ribbons bring it all together by fusing artwork and data to the discs, making sure that with every job—big or small—you’ll consistently print images and text that will not fade, scratch or smudge for the life of the disc.
