mC-Print: True Omni-Channel
POS Printing Solutions

Combining sophistication with high functionality, Star’s mC-Print2™ and mC-Print3™ receipt printers, part of Star’s new mCollection, have been designed to aesthetically match the sleek, modern design of tomorrow’s retail and hospitality environments.

The super-compact, front-feed receipt printers offer high quality printing and exceptional functionality with up to 5 interfaces including Star CloudPRNT as well as hub functionality, controlling select USB peripherals attached to the printer including Cash Drawer, Scanner and Customer Display.

The mC-Print3 is a compact, versatile 80mm receipt printer ideal for businesses operating traditional PC POS systems as well as those migrating to tablet and web-based POS. 

With front feed and front paper loading and an IPX2 rated splash proof design, the mC-Print3 also ticks all the boxes for today’s expectations in kitchens, bars and other demanding hospitality environments including integration into self-service kiosks.

Star CloudPRNT

Star CloudPRNT provides intelligent printing from a web server from any network to Star printers anywhere in the world without the need for a local POS teminal enabling unparalleled flexibility for remote receipt and remote order printing using a standard receipt printer.

All of the mC-Print series is Cloud-ready. The MCP31L and MCP31LB feature 2 USB host ports for local or Cloud based peripheral control.



Compact and Stylish

Ideal for both traditional and tablet POS, the mC-Print3 is a compact 132 x 140 x 125mm with front feed and front paper loading for high quality 80mm receipts, barcodes and graphics. The mC-Print3 also offers significant paper saving with a top margin of just 2mm.

Its stylish cube design includes a “protected” control board, soft operating switches and IPX2 splash proof rating ideal for demanding hospitality environments and space-conscious retail outlets alike.

Outstanding Connectivity

With USB, Ethernet and Lightning USB interfaces as standard and the added option of a Bluetooth Interface, the mC-Print3 receipt printer can be integrated into any traditional or tablet POS application. Star’s built-in WebPRNT and CloudPRNT technology allows for simple connection to local network or cloud based systems.

The mC-Print3 is even Star Cloud Services Ready with Digital Receipting and Internet Device Management already on board.

Star’s unique iOS Lightning cable port provides device charging as well as direct cable data transfer between Apple iOS devices and the printer.  This simplifies set-up by eliminating the need for pairing and passwords whilst using only one mains socket for printing, peripherals and tablet charging.

Hub functionality

The mC-Print3 offers up to 5 Interfaces + 2 USB Host Ports for Multiple Peripheral Hub Functionality. 

With a single power source you can effectively build your own POS station simply by connecting a USB Scanner, Scales, Customer Display etc. to the mC-Print hub.

Star’s mC-Sound buzzer alert is available to match the mC-Print Series with a choice of up to 16 different pre-programmed alerts plus user defined audio for a range of environments including bar, kitchen, fast food and express order.

Seamless Integration

The mC-Print3 has never been simpler to set up. The mCollection driver set for Windows including OPOS and JavaPOS drivers are available to download from Star’s Global Support site. iOS and Android utility apps are on the respective App store or Google Play store, accessed via a QR code from the printer self-test, and the printers also have a web-based configuration.

On-line, responsive support manuals and diagnostics are available including animated LED indication making the mC-Print2 simple to install and configure from a mobile device.
