Canon Canada has announced the new imagePROGRAF large-format five-colour 24-inch TA-20 and 36-inch TA-30 printers, developed specifically for small businesses and first-time large-format print users.

The multi-purpose imagePROGRAF TA Series is great for posters, technical documents and designs, Canon Canada notes, adding that the new devices provide users the ability to print on water-resistant media for outdoor signage with Canon’s TD pigment ink. The company explains the TA Series uses pigment ink that can produce posters that can be used for up to 6 months outdoors – no lamination needed – when using Canon’s water-resistant media. As well, with the ability to print borderless on all paper sizes, these models help eliminate the need for manual cutting.

The TA printers also include Canon’s free poster creation software, PosterArtist Lite, allowing users to design and print professional posters. The devices also come standard with a layout software, designed to let users easily nest images, minimizing paper waste and can print directly from Microsoft Office.

With the ability to print a 24 x 36-inch document or poster in as fast as 27 seconds, on plain paper using Fast (Q5) mode, the series’ air-feeding system boasts high quality, consistent printing designed to help increase productivity by helping the paper to remain straight to reduce wrinkles and paper jams. Additionally, Canon provides an on-the-fly ink tank technology that gives users the ability to replace ink during printing, helping to reduce the amount of media and ink wasted.
