Customers have needed this expansion of additional offset coated papers as well as updates to the workflow and speeds. Canon listened and addressed customers needs and came to action with a cost option to upgrade current i300 inkjet devices. Or, for those purchasing new, the i-series+ unit “will not cost any more than the existing i300” was the rally cry at the event.

The i-series+ has enhanced workflow, firmware and inks providing commercial print quality on a wider range of coated papers allowing inkjet driven printers to increase quality and lower costs for on demand variable or static print markets.
