Superb quality, eye catching, vibrant posters, banners, POS material with the lowest running costs of the Canon pigment ink printer range. Ideal for print shops, education, retail, exhibition work and all sizes of businesses.
The iPF8400SE tranverses technical drawing and display graphics printing using pigment based inks which are developed for long term display and will not be susceptible to the fading which can happen with dye based inks. If you're wanting to sell your posters and prints then this model is perfect. You'll be able to produce maps, plans, layouts, posters, banners, canvases, backlit displays and even outdoor scrim vinyl banners.
The iPF8400SE is the ideal choice for customers requiring the long lasting, high quality print results expected from a Canon machine, whilst benefitting from the lower running costs associated with Canon's 6-colour LUCIA EX pigment inks.
Vibrant, eye-catching colours
Achieve striking colours every time with Canon’s 6-colour LUCIA EX ink system. Its red ink faithfully reproduces reds and oranges to create eye-catching results, making the iPF8400SE perfect for printing high-impact volume-based work, on-demand and with a low cost of ownership.
Make sure your point of sale doesn’t lose its visual impact, no matter how long its lifespan. LUCIA EX pigment ink works brilliantly on a wide range of paper types, giving you a more durable, cost effective result for mid to long-term display.
Get faster results when you need them, with high-speed, economical printing in draft mode. 330ml and 700ml ink tanks ensure productivity even on overnight print runs. The sub-ink tanks keep the supply going even when the ink has run out, which means you can replace tanks without having to stop printing.
Save money as well as time, with a design that’s focused on the features you need, not the ones you don’t. With six inks, the iPF8400SE keeps operating expenses low while delivering consistently high quality results, ensuring cost savings that keep going as long as your printer does.
Easily produce a wide range of posters and graphics right out of the box, with the iPF8400SE’s powerful poster solutions. PosterArtist Lite enables even novices to create better-looking posters in no time at all, with automatic colour correction and background removal included as standard. If you prefer a more familiar user interface, the print plug-in for Microsoft Office lets you print poster-sized documents and graphics created in Microsoft Word, PowerPoint or Excel.
Boost productivity and streamline poster and printing workflows with imagePROGRAF Direct Print & Share, which lets you print PDF/TIF/JPEG files directly without having to go via an application or printer driver. Cloud support allows you to upload and download files for immediate sharing with other locations or multiple sites, with easy access even from mobile devices.
