In order to maximize the superb printing ability of the "FINE" print head, Canon continues to develop ink and paper specifically for PIXMA printers to enhance their performance.

In 2005, ChromaLife100, a system that improves the beauty and permanence of printed images, with the combination of genuine Canon dye inks, FINE print head, and photo paper, was developed.
Then in 2008, a further advance has been achieved with the introduction of new genuine Canon dye inks* and photo paper**.
The new system, ChromaLife100+, provides longer-lasting and more beautiful vivid photo prints.
* ChromaLife100+ compatible inks include : PGI-220BK, PG-210, CLI-221 and CL-211
** ChromaLife100+ compatible photo papers include : PT-101, PR-201 and PP-201
