Genuinely premium-quality poster production is possible with the Canon ImagePROGRAF GP-200 and GP-300

Posted by Louise 28/09/2021 0 Comment(s) Prizma,Canon,

Businesses in the market for a compact poster printer that would enable them to produce attention-grabbing marketing materials as the world economy wakes up from the coronavirus crisis, would do well to give close consideration to two recent additions to Canon’s ImagePROGRAF range.

Those new printers are, naturally, the 24” GP-200 and the 36” GP-300, which are just two models from the broader GP series of Canon printers we have recently written about on the Prizma Graphics blog.

These two machines in particular are excellent compact large-format printers. Both of them are six-colour devices that make the most of newly developed fluorescent pink ink for adding a captivating neon effect to all manner of marketing materials.  Important too is the speed at which these printers can bring your marketing plans to life, with a poster print speed of just 1 minute 18 seconds using plain paper, 2 minutes 36 seconds using heavy coated paper and 6 minutes 19 seconds when printing on to a gloss photo paper.

 

Devices that allow you to achieve a dynamic and vibrant finish – and so much more

The key highlight of these poster printer models may seem to be their status as the world’s first fluorescent aqueous pigment large-format inkjet printers. However, these devices also incorporate many more features that enable users to enjoy consistently impressive results.

At a time when it could scarcely be deemed more important for all manner of businesses in the retail and hospitality sectors to grab attention from their target audiences, the GP-200 and GP-300 offer all of the features needed to ensure a strong impact.

Those include, of course, the fluorescent pink ink that delivers vibrant neon colours, but also the simple and easy-to-use design software, in the form of PosterArtist 3.4, with its new templates and built-in stock photo service.

The GP-200 and GP-300 also both allow for free-size borderless printing, the high-precision paper edge detection supporting prints of all sizes. Further enhancing the ease of use of these printers is the direct-to-print capability; the built-in 500 Gb hard drive allows for the straightforward reprinting of saved data, while JPG/PDF images can even be printed directly from a USB memory, without the need for any connection to a PC.

 

Compact, easy-to-use large-format printers that you can count on, time and time again

With the impactful fluorescent colours that the GP-200 and GP-300 are capable of producing, not to mention pastel colours with gentle tones, businesses such as retail stores, restaurants, government offices and schools are likely to be highly appreciative of these sophisticated printers that come with a very welcome and generous, 540 ml in total, set of six starter 90 ml inks, with the available option of high capacity of 300 ml inks.

If your business is in one of the above categories and you are accustomed to outsourcing poster production jobs, now could be the ideal time to invest in a high-specification large-format printer that is also a very practical day-to-day device.

This is helped by the small footprints of these machines, which help maximise available office space. Furthermore, all printing-related operations, such as the setting and replacement of roll paper and ink tanks and the removal of printouts, can be undertaken from the front of the printer. This makes it an easy decision for many users to decide to have the printer installed flush against the wall of their office.

To learn more about what the Canon ImagePROGRAF 24” GP-200 and 36” GP-300 make possible for your business’s in-house production of marketing materials, or to receive advice and guidance on any other poster printer option, please do not hesitate to contact the Prizma Graphics team today.
