The Canon TA-20 printer uses pigmented inks to create stunning quality prints. To explain briefly........
Whilst all Canon imagePROGRAF printers print at the same resolution (dpi), they are split into two ranges: Technical (CAD & Poster) and Graphics/Photo. TA, TM & TX Models are available with 5 colour ink systems for Cad & poster work, and the Graphics range PRO-series models come with 6, 8 or 12 colour ink systems for higher volume display work, photographic and gallery prints. The more ink colours a printer has, the wider the colour gamut & the better the black & white and greyscales will be. The Canon pigment inks offer both UV fade resistance and some water resistance meaning all the latest Canon models offer long lasting prints for framing and display and even outdoor display.
ORIGINAL CANON INKS - The Canon TA-20 24" plotter is only intended to be used with genuine Canon cartridges with a Canon original chip. Cartridges using a non-Canon chip may not work and may damage your machine or the printhead. GDS stock the full range of original Canon supplies for the Canon TA-20.
