8 Signs You Need A Professional Inkjet Printer


Photographers, graphic designers, and creatives alike have needs that can’t be met by technologies the rest of the population may employ. Whereas a basic laser printer may be fine for most people, those in the industry of art, media, and photography need a printer with more precision and utility.

Namely, they need an inkjet printer but just might not know it yet.

Of the many types of inkjet printers on the market, none can compare to Canon’s latest model, the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000. State of the art in every way, the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 provides unmet quality and versatility for any printing job, and will no doubt make a professionals daily tasks far easier.

But again, an inkjet printer may not be necessary for everyone. To see if you’ll benefit from the precision and utility gained from an inkjet printer, see if the prompts found below sound like you.

You’re tired of dealing with clogs and mechanical problems.

Needing to consistently monitor your printer in case a clog or jam occurs is an added stress and altogether time consuming. Clogs and other nozzle-related woes really aren’t a problem with the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 thanks to its intuitive ink ejection system. If one nozzle clogs, then another will instantly make up the difference and ensure your print comes out clean. That’s what you get with a system that utilizes 18,432 nozzles and sensors.

You need precision.

No matter what style/type of paper you’re using to print, the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 will accurately place ink on the paper, no matter what. This due to the Canon Air Feeding System, which uses multiple openings on the top of the printer to firmly grip any piece of paper and smoothly run it through the machine. The correct distance between the paper itself and the printer is always maintained, regardless of any changes you may make between prints.

You want better colour-reproduction and clarity.

Combining 11 colours and Chroma Optimize ink, the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000’s ink system is innovative in every way. Not only will images be reproduced with far better clarity in comparison to previous models, but a broader colour range is achieved and darker areas appear with finer detail. This is largely thanks to the printer’s dense droplet placement, which also reduces glossiness.

You work with a wide array of papers.

Regardless of the media type you’re utilizing, the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 will print a clear image with a vibrant colour range. Glossier media types and darker ones are automatically calibrated for in the printer’s ink system, and the same goes for finer art papers, as the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 is capable of rendering incredible detail even with thinner papers.

You don’t want to waste time switching between media types.

For most printers, making what should be a simple transition from Matte Black to Photo Black can take quite a bit of time while wasting ink. That isn’t the case for the PRO-1000, where media types have their very own nozzles, allowing you to switch back and forth seamlessly.

You need to print more, faster.

With its 1.28″ wide print head, the PRO-1000 has an expanded printing area of 50%. This physical characteristic ensures all forms of printing will be done at a much faster rate, as more can be put on to a media type with every movement of the print head.

You need to manage your workflow more precisely.

Incredibly useful management tools are built right into the PRO-1000, providing you with unparalleled precision when printing. One such tool includes the “accounting manager,” a feature that allows you to track every sheet of paper and the amount of ink used during a single print. With this, you can better track the use of supplies and cost for each printing job, thus allowing you to keep tabs on finances far easier.

You’ll be using more than one printer.

If one printer simply isn’t enough to meed your demands, then the PRO-1000 is the perfect fit. Why? Well, because with the Device Management Console feature, multiple PRO-1000s can be controlled by one. You get all the convenience of using one printer with the output of many, which will no doubt make any large-scale printing job far quicker to finish.
