CZ-01 Home photo printer


In the digital age, where every moment of our lives can be immortalized and instantly shared on social media, it might seem that traditional photographs have lost their importance. However, the truth is that printed photos still have irreplaceable value. They not only allow you to keep memories in physical form, but also become part of our home environment, bringing joy and warmth to our interiors. Printing photos at home gives you a unique opportunity to personalize your surroundings and share special moments in a more tangible way.

In this context, the Citizen CZ-01 printer appears to be an ideal tool that allows you to print photos at home. Compact, easy to use and transport, this printer is an excellent choice for anyone who values comfort and high quality prints.

Meet Citizen CZ-01

Citizen CZ-01 is not only an example of modern design and compactness, but above all, a synonym of advanced printing technology. Weighing only 5.8 kg and taking up minimal space, it easily finds a place on any desk or in a home photo printing corner. Its ease of use means that even people with no experience can quickly master the printing process.

CZ-01 is a dye-sublimation technology that enables the production of prints with vivid colors, incredible depth and durability, which do not fade under the influence of light or moisture. Thanks to the 600 dpi resolution, every detail of the photo is reproduced with precision, which is especially important in professional home photography.

Moreover, the CZ-01 offers a variety of print formats – from standard 4×6 inches, through ‘Instagram’ 4×4 inches, to semi-widescreen 4.5×8 inches – and finishing options: glossy, matte and semi-matte. This gives users the freedom to choose how best to present their work, regardless of the occasion.

Citizen CZ-01 is more than just a printer. It is a gateway to a world where digital memories become permanent artifacts of our lives, combining modern technology with the warmth of home.

Print formats available in CZ-01

The Citizen CZ-01 printer offers a wide selection of print formats, which allows it to be adapted to the various needs and preferences of users. Available formats are:

4×6” (102mm x 152mm): Classic photo format, perfect for family albums, photo frames or as a souvenir of events.

4×4” (102mm x 102mm): Popular ‘Instagram’ square format, perfect for printing photos from social media, creating collages or thematic albums.

Semi-panoramic 4.5×8” (114mm x 203mm): A wider format, great for printing landscapes, architectural photos, or as a decorative element.

Square 4.5×4.5” (114mm x 114mm): A larger square that is suitable for artistic and decorative projects where the square format better reflects the intended effect.

Thanks to this diversity, the CZ-01 provides users with the flexibility to choose the best way to present their photographs, regardless of the occasion or intended use.

Photo finishing – options and applications

Finishing the photo is crucial to the final visual effect. Citizen CZ-01 offers three main print finishing options:

Glossy: This finish adds color intensity and depth to photos, making them stand out more. Perfect for landscape photos, portraits and any photographs that need to attract the eye and be the focal point of attention.

Matte: Reduces light reflections, making it perfect for lit rooms. A matte finish is often chosen for artistic and documentary photographs and for places where light reflection could distort the perception of the image.

Mixed: part of the photo in gloss and part in matte. This is a unique function not found in other solutions, allowing you to create prints with clearly differentiated textures in a single photo. Perfect for people looking for innovative ways to emphasize contrast or highlight specific image elements without the need to use additional frames or post-printing processing.

The choice of the appropriate finish depends on individual preferences, the purpose of the photo and the conditions in which it will be presented. Thanks to the ability to choose between different finishes, CZ-01 allows for full personalization of prints, which is especially valuable in a home photo studio, where every detail matters.
