The Canon Colorado printer uses UVgel technology (UV curable ink) to produce large format, high-quality graphics, and signage and is uniquely suited to print on watercolor paper. The Canon Colorado printer adds that extra OOMPH! factor to your prints.

  1. Wide Color Gamut: UVgel inks typically provide a wide color gamut, allowing for accurate color reproduction of high-resolution images and vibrant prints.

  4. Durability: Prints produced with UVgel inks are often durable and resistant to fading, scratches, and environmental factors. This makes them suitable for outdoor applications, such as banners and signage.
  5. Low Environmental Impact: UVgel technology is often designed to be environmentally friendly. The instant curing process reduces energy consumption, and some formulations of UVgel inks are formulated with reduced levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
