Rated 5 out of 5�by Just Tested Just received and tested for about one week. For Printing MP called the Multi-Page loader is the front fold out area to load paper. I have not tried all of the features yet like the long banner print feature. But did a very nice print out on Avery business card which looked as good as the multi-color business cards by the service Office depot provides. December 23, 2014

C531dn Digital Color Printer

The fast, high-quality, energy-efficient color printer designed for your business or small workgroup

Product Details

For small businesses and workgroups demanding superior quality at an affordable price, OKI brings you the C531dn Digital Color printer.

Network-ready, they combine fast printing speeds, incredible print quality, duplex (2-sided) printing standard, the ability to print on a wide variety of media, and the legendary reliability of OKI products, backed by industry-leading support.

HD Color Printing technology - This printer utilizes this unique OKI process for breathtaking output. HD Color Printing technology combines multi-level LED printheads and microfine toner for precise toner placement; deep, saturated colors; and fine detail on regular copy paper and glossy media.

Exceptional paper handling - The C531dn has a standard paper capacity of 350 sheets: a 250-sheet paper tray plus built-in 100-sheet multi-purpose tray for labels, envelopes, transparencies, and thicker media up to 80 lb. cover (220 gsm). It can print everything from 3" x 5" cards to banner-size sheets up to 8.5" x 52".

And their paper capacity expands to 880 sheets with an optional 530-sheet 2nd tray. Perfect for virtually any printing environment - The versatile C331dn and C531dn both work beautifully in the most popular operating system environments. They come with PCL® 6, PCL® and PostScript® 3™ emulations, for professional-looking text and graphics.

Unmatched warranty support - We're so confident in the reliability of the C531dn that we provide an industry-leading 5-year warranty on its printheads, and a 3-year Carry-In/Depot limited printer warranty and optional coverage extensions. If you need technical assistance, you can speak to a live OKI expert located in North America by calling 800.OKI.DATA (800.654.3282) at any time.

If you need high-speed, highly flexible printers to increase the productivity of your business or small workgroup, the compact C531dn color printer from OKI is your ideal choice.

Digital Color printers from OKI deliver more than brilliant output at best-in-class speeds - The C531dn also offers a long list of features that can improve your image, profitability and peace of mind:

  • Control the quality of your output
  • Color Swatch selects the color swatches that match your target and simply use their RGB or CMYK values while creating your document to ensure matching colors.
  • Customize a swatch by setting the Hue, Saturation and Lightness to target your custom color.

Color Correct makes it easy to adjust colors commonly found in applications like Microsoft® Word, Excel® and PowerPoint®. It also lets you adjust the overall color of a print by controlling the lightness, darkness and contrast of images, and the intensity and lightness of the colors.

Control your printing costs
Print Job Accounting Software enables tracking of color and mono printing costs, easy monitoring of printing activity, and greater control of printer usage. It generates reports for administrative, bill-back or cost-accounting purposes. User permissions can be assigned and are stored on the printer, so the system is totally secure.

An important feature of Print Job Accounting is the use of color printing restrictions. This lets you control and monitor color usage by defining who can print and what gets printed, making color printing cost effective. Decide who and what can print in color, in black & white or not at all. Access levels can be assigned by user name, application, file name and web sites. Once policies are configured, the printer determines how-or if-incoming jobs will print. All policies are password-protected for added security. Control your effect on the planet's health.

The C531dn offers a number of environmentally friendly features, including:

  • Duplex (2-sided) printing - It's standard on the C351dn.
  • Use both sides of a sheet rather than two sheets.
  • Saves paper-and is even more energy-efficient.

Automatic ECO Mode - This printer optimizes the print time for small jobs, using less energy. Same terrific output, faster throughput, lower power consumption. Everybody wins.

Deep Sleep Mode - When left on for an extended period, the C531dn slips into this mode, which uses less than 1.5 watts of power.
One-piece image drum - This long-lasting, userreplaceable consumable remains friendly to your budget while lowering the number of items to dispose of and store.

Energy Star® compliance - With its lower power consumption - especially in Deep Sleep Mode - and standard duplexing, this printer meets the government's standards for energy efficiency.
