Canon is introducing its Poster Designer Plus software for use with the company’s imagePROGRAF product line of inkjet printers. Poster Designer Plus is Web-to-print plug-in software that adds a large-format poster design engine, shopping cart and checkout functionality to an existing Website.
This cloud-hosted printing storefront, explains Canon, gives print service providers tools to take advantage of industry trend towards the online ordering of wide-format printing. Canon points to a recent study by InfoTrends, which predicts the online print business will double to US$70 billion in online transactions by 2017.
Canon Canada plans to highlight Poster Designer Plus software at the upcoming Graphics Canada trade show, taking place from April 16 to 18 at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ontario.
