Why Canon Imageprograf printers? – With the growth in popularity of the giclee print, many well known companies have started to make large-format inkjet printers capable of fine art printing. We have tested all of the most popular printers and come to the conclusion that the Canon printers offer the best print quality possible for digital fine art prints. The 12-color ink set of the Canon Imageprofraf series printers offer us the widest color gamut. The Canon also allows us to get very rich colors and a deep, dark velvety black. We have found that the other leading printers that use pigment ink produce somewhat washed out or chalky colors and weak blacks. With the Canon we can make a print that rivals or exceeds the quality that we have been getting on the Iris printers with dye inks. The Canon’s color capabilities combined with fine detail and the ability to print 60″ wide make it an outstanding printer for giclees or what we like to call “Archival Pigment Prints”.
