There’s a hot new printer on the market that you’re going to want to know about. Even if you already have a printer or don’t care about printers, this one may just appeal to you anyway. It’s called the Canon SELPHY and it’s becoming a hot new accessory to have – the bee’s knee’s if you will. So just what exactly is it?
The Canon SELPHY CP910 is a compact and portable printer that is great for turning snapshots into physical prints on a whim. It allows you to realize your images on postcard size paper, as well as giving you additional media options like creditcard sized stock or even stickers. This makes it great for taking to parties or other social events where you want fun prints made at a moment’s notice for guests to take with them.
Instead of the typical ink processes that an inkjet or laser printer might use, the SELPHY uses a dye sublimation process. This works by applying heat to transfer miniature dots of solid ink from a coated film in the cartridge onto the print, rather than using liquid or powdered ink. That way, the printer can easily create images on plastic, fabric or other card stock in addition to paper. The coated film includes bands of yellow, magenta and cyan, as well as a transparent protective layer so that, unlike inkjet prints, the ink is dry as soon as it’s done. There’s no need to worry about smudging.
Since the SELPHY has full wireless capabilities, it’s a breeze to print right from your smartphone or tablet and you can also adjust image settings right on top of the device. Make your next summer party a hit and check out this fun new printer.
