The Canon TX and TM Series large format printers can print from all modern Adobe applications including Acrobat, Photoshop, Illustrator and inDesign with stunning detail and line accuracy- handling PDFs with complex layers with ease. The Canon hardware and software work in tandem to interpret files without the need for a costly PostScript upgrade, making your budget go further, whilst offering class-leading value for money in the Large Format Printer market.
Admittedly, there are a few people that haven’t yet upgraded their older native PostScript applications such as Quark Express in favour of more modern Adobe applications, but they are few and far between and continue to pay those expensive license fees, even though most are probably just printing PDF documents.
PDF files of all sizes can be printed with extreme precision on the Canon imagePROGRAF series of printers, with multiple options available for job submission:
• Via the top-mounted USB port for direct print from a memory stick
• Via FTP File Direct Print for remote printing scenarios
• Via the Windows or Mac Drivers
• Using Canon’s Direct Print & Share batch printing tool that provides easy submission of multiple jobs and even desktop ‘hot folder’ style shortcuts to minimise time spent setting up print jobs.
In a recent sales guide, one manufacturer claimed that layered PDF files could not be printed on a Canon TX. We’re happy to say that this has been proved wrong time and time again by printing via Canon’s free Direct Print & Share utility with fantastic results.
