PR Newswire: news distribution, targeting and monitoring
Feb 4 2013

TORONTO, Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Planon has just added printing functionality for Mac users on PrintStik.

"The concept of a portable printer is not new, but making them small enough that you actually want to take it with you is." said Doug Verkaik, CEO of PlanOn System Solutions, Inc. "With the PrintStik, consumers can now have the convenience of their office printer wherever they are."

The PrintStik is remarkably small, at only about 1"x2"x11" with 20 pages of paper inside making it easy to carry in a coat pocket, laptop bag, or purse. It is rechargeable and does not use ink or toner, which both are expensive and potentially messy when travelling. The PrintStik actually uses thermal technology, which for this purpose is ideal allowing for trouble-free instant monochrome printing on their 7 year rated paper. Easy to use, connects with a USB cable and prints anything like a standard printer.

Consider the ability to print from your laptop anywhere and conveniently… in your hotel room, car, café, airport, lobby, is here.

Verkaik calls the combination of PrintStik and its Color Portable Scanners (smallest full page scanner) a potent "double win" for consumers. "Separately, these technologies are very useful. Used together they give consumers a complete 'Office in a Pocket.' Planon scanners capture the content or input, while the PrintStik mobile printer provides the output or printed page," continued Verkaik.

Planon offer various models of printers and scanners that work with Mac, Windows and many smartphones.

The PrintStik PS900 is priced under $200 making this an easy decision for the mobile worker. Available at various online retailers and at
