Product Overview

The Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-300 is a 13-inch professional printer that uses 9-color LUCIA PRO plus Chroma Optimizer ink for expanded color gamut and deep blacks.
Being 15% smaller than its predecessor, the PRO-300 enjoys several new features:
  • Improved media compatibility allows the imagePROGRAF PRO-300 to print on panorama-sized paper as well as media of varying thicknesses.
  • It can print on a wide variety of media, including borderless printing, without ink-switching.
  • The new Matte Black ink boosts monochrome results.
  • The updated Professional Print & Layout software ensures color accuracy from a wide range of professional programs to the print result.
The imagePROGRAF PRO-300 incorporates technologies to help prevent print failures, including a nozzle recovery system and skew correction. The printer detects clogs and automatically compensates with other nozzles to avoid paper and ink waste.
The PRO-300 can print at 4m 15s for a bordered 13x19".
