Canon expanded its PIXMA Ink Efficient G Series printers line-up, bringing more options for home users as well as home-based and small businesses. With the changes to how we work, as well as an increase in working from home (WFH) and remote learning arrangements, the need and demand for printing documents, essays, reports and study materials at home are on the rise in recent months and possibly in the near future as the world economy is entering into a new future of work.

Canon’s latest refillable ink tank printers feature high ink volumes combined with improved page yield to offer low-cost printing. For easy maintenance, the new G Series includes a drip-free, hands-free ink refilling mechanism, and a user-replaceable maintenance cartridge design to ensure minimum downtime and maximum productivity for homes and businesses. 

Whether you are a photographer, small home business, content creator or student, having a all-in-one multi-function home printer would be very useful and essential as WFH might be a norm in the future of work or new hybrid working/studying environment in the very near future.

Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore said: “With more people working and studying from home, they will need printers that deliver maximum productivity and cost efficient printing. With easy maintainability, users can be assured of minimal downtime. We have also seen a significant rise in printer sales in the last six months, and our G series is set to meet this increased demand.” 

More Ink, More Performance, More Pages 

Right out of the box, the new Canon G series includes enough ink to last a long time for most users. The black-only documents page yield has been improved by 26% (1) compared to existing G series models, with the new models delivering up to 7,600 pages with one black ink bottle. Page yield for colour documents has also been improved with the new models capable of printing 7,700 pages with one colour ink bottle. For businesses and homes with high print volumes, this increased page yield presents a more economical choice. 

The printers are suitable for both general use and photo printing, with crisp and sharp text in text documents and line drawings through the dedicated use of pigment black ink, and automatic switching to only dye-ink colour channels when there is a need to produce borderless glossy photos up to A4 sizes. 

Drip-free, Hands-Free Ink Refilling Process 

To avoid unintended filling of coloured inks into the wrong tank openings, the new Canon G series features new ink bottle designs, with outlet nozzles that fit only in the respective colour tank well openings. Ink filling is fast, drip-free, and hands-free, allowing users to complete the entire unboxing and setup process in just minutes, while maintaining a mess-free workstation. 

An integrated ink tank design also keeps the printer footprint compact, while providing clear visual indication of remaining ink levels. 

Always Up and Running 

The user-replaceable maintenance cartridge design of the new Canon G series coupled with the automatic reset of the internal ink counter prolongs the printer lifespan well beyond conventional printers and ensures users can continue to use the printer with minimal downtime.
