Now with even easier supply replacement and more print-size flexibility, the ASK-500 opens up new photo business possibilities.

Refilling supplies has never been simpler!

Consumables have attachment parts built in

Ribbons and paper can now be inserted right out of their boxes, since they have the necessary parts already attached —no setup needed.

Visual instructions make replacement easy

Simple-to-follow illustrations guide the process

A status lamp confirms that the paper is inserted correctly


Grab the upper handle and pull out the innner compartment.


Remove the used ribbon, then take the new ribbon out of its box and simply insert it.


Remove the used paper and put the new paper straight inside. Insert the loose end of the paper until the status lamp turns green.



Multiple print sizes with a single media

Multiple sizes can be printed with a single media. This lets you print more efficiently and save money.

Examples of size variation (when using 6-inch paper roll)

6” × 8”

High-quality printing technology

Matte finish mode

This mode produces prints with a cool and luxurious feel, by performing special processing on the ink ribbon and paper without the need to exchange them.

Image Intelligence™

Fujifilm’s proprietary image processing technology, Image Intelligence™, automatically compensates for problematic conditions and reproduces beautiful images as the eye sees them.

Dust-Proof Design to Protect Prints from Dust

High air pressure inside the printer prevents dust from entering, and the air passages of the thermal head and the power supply unit are separated. This lets the printer be set up in a variety of on-site environments.

Even new installations run trouble-free thanks to easy maintenance

New Space-Saving Design

With its small footprint, this printer can be set up almost anywhere, yet it holds plenty of paper on its high-capacity roll.

Ribbon Rewind Function

The ribbon rewind function enables printing without waste. When the previous half portion of the ribbon patch was not used in the previous order, it can be used in the next 4” x 6” or 3.5” x 5” size print order.

*Ribbon rewind function does not work for Matte finish.

With no need for special training, this printer is well-suited even for shops with many short-term employees, and businesses working with photos for the first time.
