Our software solutions allow you to maximise the efficiency of your Citizen printer

Mac drivers and Catalina

Due to changes in the way the new Catalina treats 32-bit applications and drivers, currently we do not recommend upgrading your macOS device to Catalina if you intend to use a Citizen photo printer.

We are currently working on new drivers that are fully Catalina-compatible and will release them in due course when they have been comprehensively tested.

Print Manager v2.0 For Citizen - NEW!

Print Manager v2.0 for Citizen is a FREE, Windows only, exclusive desktop manager for anyone who operates a Citizen photo printer. First and foremost, it is a real-time status monitor. It tells you how many prints remain and which format of media is installed. It tells you the printer’s serial number and when there is an error with the printer or media. Not only that, Print Manager has a brilliant hot folder feature that supports both standard prints and panoramic prints (CX-02 printers). When you drop images into a hot folder, Print Manager will print them automatically using the printer settings you defined. Busy event photographers will really appreciate this feature. In addition, version 2.0 introduces an intelligent multiple image per print capability. You can now print however many images you want per page in your own design whether it’s the same image or different images. It’s a very clever feature and it’s free! What’s more Print Manager will automatically update, and it’s feature set will continue to grow. Download Print Manager for Citizen today and experience it for yourself.
