Lexmark 2581n Forms Printer

Enter a world of versatility
Whatever you're printing – from invoices to packing slips to shelf labels – you can always count on true Lexmark versatility. Each printer comes with a handy Push/Pull Tractor, allowing you to switch between push and pull feeds effortlessly for a smooth, versatile paper feed. You can also benefit from an array of flexible paper-handling options: like an Automatic Sheet Feeder to load a stack of cut-sheet media, envelopes or multipart forms. Or a Tractor 2 to load two types of continuous forms simultaneously. Want to run longer without stopping? Then opt for the high-yield ribbons, which include automatic re-inking to reduce user intervention.

Life at the printer just got even simpler!
These forms printers are incredibly easy to use right out of the box. First, there's no Web connection needed for driver set up. Everything's on the CD – just slide it in and go! Loading ribbons and installing media options takes just seconds. And there are lots of user-friendly operational features too. The new operator panel gives you easy access to all printer functions, and includes intuitive font indicators that show you what the fonts look like. What's more, each model offers character and page counts via the operator panel (or via Web page on network models), allowing you to monitor supplies and page usage effectively!
