Tried and tested with our own Canon PRO-2000, this paper prints beautifully, with deep blacks and vibrant colours.
We get contacted a lot by customers wishing to produce a good quality bespoke wrapping paper products on their wide format digital inkjet printers. We've trialled both uncoated and coated papers for print quality, gift 'show through' and for the 'behaviour with sticky tape'. There's always a compromise between choosing a high quality, heavy weight paper to give the very best print results and selecting a paper that can be easily handled, folded, wrapped and taped down successfully.
We've come up with the ultimate compromise - this paper is a premium quality, matt coated inkjet paper produced for GDS by Canon with the following features:
When we have trialled this paper using our own Canon PRO-2000 printer with all types of image and although there was some cockling when using a heavy ink load, as the print came off, it had disappeared within a a few seconds as the design dried.
GDS stocks a huge range of paper and media in rolls and sheets and we know exactly what fits your Canon PRO-2000 Printer.
The Canon PRO-2000 12 colour Photo Printer can print on a very wide range of media from basic papers, to presentation matt, heavyweight matt, satin or gloss photo paper, backlit film, canvas, fine art papers, roller banner, self adhesive, vinyl and even outdoor banner to name the most popular.
The Canon PRO-2000 can print onto roll paper or you can individually load paper sheets to use sheet media, however we much prefer roll feed for ease of use.
The Canon PRO-2000 takes rolls on both 2" or 3" inch core (the core is the tube in the centre of the roll) and you will find blue core adaptors that come with the printer. These can be clipped on to the spindle to fill out the 3 inch core rolls.
You don't have to use Canon branded papers. You will usually find a 'near enough' media setting on the Canon PRO-2000 media list on the printer display, but you can also use the Media Configuration Tool to download more Canon branded media types or to custom build your own specific paper setting. Likewise, you can also download .icc profiles for this printer if you choose to use fine art brands such as Innova, Canson, Hahnemuhle, etc.
GDS offers a basic 'tried & tested' range of our own brand medias which will give great results and superb value for money when printing on the Canon PRO-2000 printer.Our PRO-2000 paper range should give you a paper product that is suitable for any of your print jobs. Furthermore we can supply any branded paper or media roll you require for any specific print job. Our most popular papers are:
The Canon PRO-2000 A1 size (24") printer can take rolls up to 24" wide / 610mm and up to 90mt long (15cms diameter).
Here is an overview of the standard sizes of wide format paper rolls and sheets and the size of prints you can use them for. Sizing varies between traditional CAD sizing where true ISO sheet size is required from rolls, and graphics sizing which is almost always oversized to allow designs with a bleed for trimming. Where a roll accommodates two sizes you can print both by simply turning your print to landscape.
