Melville, NY—Canon USA introduced the Ivy mini photo printer for phoneographers and social media enthusiasts. The printer is available in a choice of rose gold, mint green or slate gray. Moreover, the Ivy printer was developed to empower “the next generation of creators to tell and share their story in real life (IRL) through the power of print in the digital age,” Canon announced.
“The proverb ‘good things come in small packages’ couldn’t be more true for the first 2×3 photo printer from Canon USA,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon USA, Inc. “It’s our smallest and lightest printer yet. And the company is excited about giving customers more access to creatively connect and instantly share memories than ever before from the palm of their hand.”
Ivy Mini: Be Creative IRL
For smartphone photographers seeking to stay mobile with their devices, the compact, portable printer is engineered with user-friendly features. The features are accessible through the Canon Mini Print app.
The app includes creative filters, such as photo frames and stickers. It also provides augmented reality (AR) face distortion as well as photo-editing tools. The tools provide the ability to add text and frames as well as the option to draw on the images. Moreover, the app is designed to encourage users to creatively add fun enhancements and share their distinctive memories in real time.
The Ivy mini printer produces individual smudge-free and water-resistant 2×3 prints or stickers. However, with customization at the foundation, via its dedicated app it also offers the option to produce a tile print made up of four or nine prints. In addition, the app provides 10 unique collage templates that print on one 2×3-inch photo.
ZINK Zero Ink Technology
Furthermore, the Ivy printer utilizes ZINK Zero Ink technology from ZINK. As a result it prints in full color without the need for ink cartridges. Moreover, each pack of paper comes with one blue ZINK Smart Sheet to calibrate the printer to the photo paper in that pack.
The Canon Ivy mini photo printer is available for a suggested retail price of $129.99. The printer body comes bundled with a starter pack of 10 sheets of photo paper. In addition, 20-sheet and 50-sheet packs of photo paper will also be available for $9.99 and $24.99, respectively. usa.canon.com
