Print and Cut Sticker Printer: Introducing the iColor 250 Sticker Machine (MAC and PC)

If you run a sticker shop or custom sticker business, I just found what I would consider to be among the best printers to print stickers!!

The Uninet iColor 250 is a super compact, super fast print and cut sticker machine that can print on 5" wide sticker and label material as well as speciality materials like magnet, BOPP (a polypropylene material with permanent adhesive), and metallics. 

There is SO much to love about the iColor 250 including that this print and cut sticker printer works on both a PC and a MAC as well as its small size and fast, high resolution printing. Did I mention the small learning curve?

Yes, the price tag is high, but so are the margins on stickers especially for a machine that both prints and cuts leaving you hands off rather than fussing with registration marks and multiple machines. 

Read on to learn if the iColor 250 print and cut sticker machine is right for your small business.
