One of the great assets of the Lexmark C912 is its versatility. It can be used for:

  • General office printing
    – to add highlight color to memos, letters, forms or reports;
  • Expanded graphic applications
    – new banner application allows users to print store signs on demand. Its ability to produce 12 inch-by-18 inch output has many applications in schools or graphic design shops; and
  • Vertical industry applications
    – whether used for architectural drawings in a manufacturing environment, retail shelf labels, or forms on demand in government offices, the Lexmark C912’s customizable functionality is nearly limitless.

The Lexmark C912‘s versatility makes it indispensable to the office, its reliability makes it the go-to device for demanding workgroups and its affordability makes it as popular with the CFO as it is with the CIO.”

It has three levels of color toner saver and input capacity of 5,300 sheets.
