Produce vivid neon colors with the Canon imagePROGRAF GP Series Large Format Printers with Fluorescent Pink Ink.

Features

The GP-300 device features a 5-color pigment based plus Fluorescent Pink Ink. The new Fluorescent Pink Ink allows the reproduction of graphic posters and signage, expanding the color gamut for designers to replicate the exact colors for their business needs and branding. Canon's unique Radiant Infusion which layers the newly developed Fluorescent Pink Ink with other inks on the paper surface during printing creating bright and soft color reproduction. Available in 130 ml or 300 ml ink tanks. 540 ml of ink ships standard with the GP-300.
A good fit for small offices, the compact GP-300 has a small footprint for a 36” large format aqueous inkjet printer.
JPEG and PDF files can be directly printed from the GP-300. Simply load your files onto your USB drive, step right up to the printer and plug your USB drive into the port.
A built-in 500 GB hard drive within the printer can increase productivity by relieving workload from the host computer, while providing a large capacity for print job data storage and retrieval.
The GP-300 features a 3" color touchscreen operation panel making it easy to view printer information as well as perform simple operations.
Printing jobs quickly is critical on the work site and in the office. The Wi-Fi connectivity can transfer technical drawing files and help speed up your workflow- perfect for high-volume printing. No Wi-Fi router is needed, which can provide greater freedom during installation.
The 6-channel PF-07 Print Head is engineered to work with the printer’s high-speed carriage and high-frequency ink ejection to help facilitate fast printing. This printer boasts Canon's print-head technology that lays down ink with outstanding speed and accuracy. The PF-07 print head incorporates a nozzle orifice shape to help minimize mist spray, producing clean lines and text. The high-precision, high-density print head, with a total of 15,360 nozzles, lays down 5 picoliter-size ink droplets that help produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The result is consistently accurate 2400 x 1200 dpi output (max.) with fine lines that are accurate to ±0.10% and as thin as 0.02mm.
The Sub-Ink Tank System allows virtually all of the available ink in a tank to be used before having to replace it, helping to eliminate wasted ink. The empty tanks can also be replaced on-the-fly without stopping the printer. This is extremely useful during your long print jobs.
Supports borderless printing on all rolls and custom widths to reduce the need for paper trimming.

Accounting Manager software serves as a powerful feature that can help users accurately manage printing costs and other information that is increasingly important in today’s economic environment.

With the Accounting Manager software you can track how much ink and paper is being consumed when printing in large format jobs. Costs can be assigned to ink and paper to determine expenses based on your own “Cost of Goods”. Each individual ink tank and each paper type can have its own cost associated to it. The user can also input a variable cost that will be added to the total of the print cost. The data is exportable to a .csv format for Microsoft Excel® so the data can be used for billing purposes. This feature will allow you to determine the cost of each print based on your actual cost.

Canon's included PosterArtist Lite poster creation software gives users the ability to quickly and easily create professional large format prints and now supports the creation of multilingual posters and tiling! Users simply follow the program's four (4) easy steps to create posters that can be used in applications such as office Presentations, Trade shows, Retail Signage, and much, much more. The PosterArtist QuickCopy* feature provides an easy solution for a CanoScan desktop scanner to be used as a copier, making letter-size flyers and documents into full-size posters with a touch of a button. The Radiant Infusion technology is integrated into PosterArtist Lite software to allow users to create high impact posters easily.

The newest edition of PosterArtist includes an abundance of new content options that make poster designing and printing more dynamic than ever before. For this software edition Canon has partnered with third party photo stock companies to expand the available options to include thousands of high resolution, ready to use images. The array of poster templates highlights the Fluorescent Pink Ink.
