Are the inks cheep for this printer and is it suitable to print posters? If some one have Gloss paper - is the printer printing good on Gloss paper?? 13 Oct 2014
I get my cartridges from Cartridge World which is cheaper than the standard ones. Yes, it does glossy photo paper very well if you set it to that in the Preferences.. If you have A3 photo gloss you will be able to produce a stunning poster.
Does it come with the USB cable? Also what reasonable quality paper would you recommend for printing text and images on both sides in A3? 17 Feb 2014
No it doesnt come with the cable, but you can buy the cable on amazon for like £4. For both side printing ? standard copier paper is fine for me at the moment
Does this model do proper booklet printing? What I mean is booklet printing in one go, rather than having to put the paper through twice 19 Mar 2014
No. Even duplex printing is manual only.
The best people to ask are at Canon UK.
Sorry i cant answer that- Canon can answer with a positive yes or no.What i can say is this is a lovely printer -mine photo's 7x5in A4 and A3 come out fantastic.
Does it scan? 7 Oct 2014
No. It is a printer, and not a 2 in 1; if you need a scanner and don't have or want a stand alone scanner, then you should get a different model. Duplex printing is also a manual operation with this printer. On the (big) plus sides, it prints very well up to A3, and has been a good workhorse, and the inks (if you are not picky about sticking to Canon originals) are very cheap, so cheap running costs! I get my inks from Triangle MMA (Amazon trader), 4 sets of ink for about £15 for Pixma IP4850, and have found them to be very good indeed. It can have an idiosyncratic chunter to itself on occasion before printing, but while this is moderately annoying when it happens, I wouldn't see it as a deal breaker. Hope this helps you in making your choice - Dave.
What is the smallest size of paper I can put through this printer? Would users recommend it to print onto card? 13 Aug 2014
I would definitely recommend it for printing on card, it does it easily and with good results. I have printed on narrow strips of card from width 75 mm with great success, super way to use up off-cuts from card making.
