Canon have just announced that it has reached an agreement with Cimpress, the global leader in mass-customisation, to supply its businesses in multiple locations. This reflects the strategic decision by Cimpress to continue to invest in technology, including inkjet printing, to retain its position at the forefront of the online printing industry as it continues to grow.
The businesses within Cimpress’ portfolio include online printing powerhouses such as Vistaprint, Pixartprinting, Drukwerkdeal, WIRmachenDRUCK and Druck.at, which operate as design, marketing and print partners to millions of businesses around the world.
Robert Keane, Cimpress’ founder and CEO comments, “Cimpress businesses relentlessly focus on innovation, quality and efficiency improvements that enable us to serve our customers well. A key investment area for us is printing technology and we believe inkjet technology has an important role to play. It brings flexibility, efficiency and a positive step to reduce waste, contributing to the achievement of our sustainability goals.”
Stuart Rising, Head of Commercial Print, Production Printing Products, Canon UK & Ireland, comments; “Inkjet development has reached a level of maturity that allows print service providers to achieve high productivity, cost-efficiency and return on investment without having to compromise on quality. High speed inkjet technology enables printers to take the next steps towards the digitalisation of their print business. Industrial-scale productivity, print quality that matches offset and access to automated digital workflow, are all key reasons for print businesses to invest in growth today and beyond.
Since the launch of the varioPRINT iX-series in April 2020, Canon has seen an increase in sales of its B3 sheetfed inkjet presses. Joining the existing VarioPrint i-series product family, the varioPRINT iX-series has proven to be a compelling investment option for commercial print customers and online printers thanks to its outstanding offset-like quality, highly reliable throughput and sheetfed application flexibility.
Canon has built on its proven successes in the continuous feed market with the launch of the high-speed ProStream 1000 and 1800 presses. With maximum speeds of 80m/min (ProStream 1000) and 133m/min (ProStream 1800), the printer series has been recognised for reaching the highest resolution and print quality of any digital printing press at that speed, enabling customers to achieve maximum performance.
