Canon Expands Media Portfolio with Four Economically Priced Paper Options

Longer Paper Rolls and Eco-Conscious Option Transform the Way Technical Professionals Work

MELVILLE, N.Y., - Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the launch of four new large format media options to the imagePROGRAF media portfolio. For the first time, Canon will offer 20-pound bond, 20-pound recycled uncoated bond, 24-pound bond and 24-pound premium coated bond paper in both 150-foot rolls and 300-foot rolls. These papers are also being offered as 30-inch rolls. With the option of a longer roll, the new media selections offer cost-effective media options without compromising the quality that businesses have come to expect from Canon.

Best suited for technical markets such as architecture, engineering, construction computer-aided design (CAD) and geographic information systems (GIS) markets, all four paper options are compatible with Canon's new imagePROGRAF iPF850, iPF840 and iPF830 large format inkjet printers, providing optimal media for the full-color renderings, technical drawings and maps created by these high-volume inkjet printers.

"In our high-demand business world, it's imperative for companies to maximize their return on investment while still producing the high-quality materials their customers expect," said Junichi Yoshitake, senior vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. "With a larger roll size to improve productivity and help reduce cost per print and environmentally friendly paper selections, these new media selections provide professionals with affordable options to meet their unique business needs."

Improved Workflow

Building upon its previous media offerings, Canon now offers 300-foot rolls of large format media to help companies save time and maximize the way they work. Twice as long as previously offered rolls, this new size offers great potential to improve workflows by increasing run time and allowing users to complete more tasks without having to stop and reload paper. With two, 42 inches by 300-foot rolls, a user is now able to produce over 2,000 sq. ft. of uninterrupted printing.


Priced economically, the media offer cost-saving potential for businesses, with the larger rolls allowing users to produce more documents for a lower cost-per-print. Cost-saving possibilities are further amplified when media is combined with the productivity-enhancing features of the iPF850 and iPF840 printers, such as dual-roll printing, auto-roll switching, "Economy" print modes and cost-per-print tracking.

Eco-Conscious Alternative

Supporting Canon U.S.A.'s corporate philosophy of Kyosei, the Company's pledge to work to harmonize environmental commitment and economic interests in all our business activities, users also have the option of purchasing recycled media. The addition of 20lb recycled uncoated bond paper to the imagePROGRAF portfolio provides users with a product that offers less environmental burden and demonstrates the Company's commitment to pursuing the maximization of resource efficiency and contribute to the creation of a society that practices sustainable development.


The new media are now available for purchase through authorized Canon dealers. For more information about Canon U.S.A., Inc., visit www.usa.canon.com.
