Canon’s PRO Series printers lend themselves beautifully to fine art reproduction

Posted by Louise 30/01/2024 0 Comment(s) Canon,

It might seem evident from one glance at the specification sheet of any of the Canon ImagePROGRAF printers making up the Japanese brand’s PRO Series – including the PRO-1000, PRO-2100, PRO-4100, PRO-4100S, and PRO-6100S machines represented in the current Prizma Graphics range – that these would be excellent machines for producing highly compelling fine-art imagery.

And of course, our own experts at Prizma Graphics would recommend these Canon devices for precisely that kind of application!

If, for instance, you were to join the many people who acquire Canon ImagePROGRAF PRO-1000 printers from our online store, you would be able to quickly tap into such features of this A2 17” printer as its LUCIA PRO 12-ink system, wireless and cloud connectivity, and fast print speeds.

From the perspective of fine-art reproduction specifically, the PRO-1000 can also be depended on to bring your images to life in ways you might not have anticipated from a printer at this price point.

A newly developed micro-capsuled material for LUCIA PRO ink will enable you to produce fine-art prints that show impressively high levels of colour, a formidably broad colour gamut, and utterly stunning detail.

But don’t just take our word for it – ask artists themselves…

If you really want to be sure that your acquisition of a Canon ImagePROGRAF PRO-1000, PRO-2100, PRO-4100, or PRO-6100 printer will make a drastic difference to your level of confidence when it comes to showing and selling your work, you don’t need to hope the claims made by Canon – or even the Prizma Graphics team – are correct.

Instead, why not peruse some of the stories from professional fine artists who have used Canon PRO Series printers to maximise the potential of their own creative practices?

Those distinguished individuals – whose stories are set out in greater detail on the Canon website – include the likes of portrait photographer Martina Wärenfeldt, who has described her PRO-1000 as her “workhorse” in the studio, and fine art and fashion photographer Menna Hossam, whose own PRO-1000 was instrumental in branching out on a printing journey she had initially been reluctant about.

Indeed, Hossam found it a somewhat emotional experience to create her first print, recalling that she was “overwhelmed by the quality of the colour and the crispness of the detail. It was completely different to looking at the same image on screen. The print was so beautiful. It really is like magic.”

Another story that may be of interest to many a reader of the Prizma Graphics news page, is that of the underwater photographer Cheryl Walsh, who has said of her own Canon ImagePROGRAF experience: “I have the PRO-4100 and everyone says, ‘oh that’s such a big printer’. Really to me, it’s not big enough. I should have gotten the PRO-6000.”

Of course, every fine artist who contemplates investment in a new large-format printer – such as those constituting the Canon ImagePROGRAF PRO Series – will have their own expectations, needs, and ambitions for their practice.

So, if you are unsure as to which printer model might represent the best match to your requirements, you are very welcome to get in touch with the Prizma Graphics team for advice and guidance. You can do exactly that now, by sending us an email or calling us on 01296 393700.
