The Color imageRUNNER system supports a wide variety of media including heavy paper, labels, envelopes and transparencies. The model offers an optional internal finisher that can corner or double-staple multi-page documents without increasing the footprint of the device. Customers also have a choice of two external finishers that provide extensive stacking capabilities, multi-position stapling, saddle-stitched booklet output, and optional hole punching for professional-looking output. Flexibility to accommodate all job types on one machine.
Canon's proprietary UFR II printing technology as well as PCL printing is standard on every model.

Significantly reduce large file sizes associated with color files by utilizing Canon's proprietary PDF High Compression technology.
