Printers for Canvas – Which are the Best  |  (Best 5 – 2020)


so coming up in this video I’m gonna be
talking about the best printers possible for printing on canvas what’s
most annoying is that these manufacturers don’t seem to mention
whether these printers work with canvas or not they just say oh it works with
art paper well well thank you very much so yeah they don’t even tell you whether
it works with canvas or not so basically what I did is I found the people that
are really good at printing on canvas and I asked them which printers are
gonna be the best for printing on canvas they gave me lots of options and I I
read many many blogs about this and I found many questions of people asking
which printers are gonna work for canvas so basically I pinned them down to these
five printers are gonna work best for you for printing on canvas there are
many other canvas printers but these are the ones that I found work best for
printing on canvas and many people are using these and they are all reporting
successful printing without having any problems so before starting with this
video I’m gonna be sharing a few tips to make sure that you pick the right
cameras printer for you now the first step you want to look at is what size
are you gonna print on it’s really important because this if you go for a
really big size printer and you are only gonna be printing on small things it’s
gonna be a waste of money but if you want to print big things you definitely
want to go for one of the bigger printers and keep it in your mind that
you’re gonna need a lot of space if you want to get one of those big printers
you’re probably gonna need a lot of space now you may have this lingering
question can I use any large format printer or plotter to print on canvas
sadly the answer is no because not all printers are made to print on thick
objects some are made to print on pretty thin art paper and not all are made to
print on canvas so you’re definitely gonna try and stick with the ones I
recommend in this video because these are proven to work time and time again
to print on canvas okay now I’ll be talking about the inks
now usually for printing on canvas you don’t want to go for a dye based ink dye
based inks don’t work well on canvas you usually want to try and get a pigment
based ink because those work much better on the canvas and they last much longer
and they look better so pigment based are usually the preferred type for
printing on canvas now you may be thinking is resolution important for
picking a printer yes and no because resolution is important for looking at
clothes objects but usually when you print on canvas you’re gonna hang it
somewhere and you’re gonna look at it from a far distance so having a really
high resolution or having the tiniest difference in resolution is not really
gonna make a difference because you’re gonna be looking at it from far away and
you won’t even see the difference in resolution between most printers the
better thing to be concerned about is the color quality the next question is
gonna be how often are you willing to use this printer if you’re gonna use
this printer every single day and you wanna use it for a business and you
wanna maybe sell some canvas paintings and stuff you are definitely gonna try
and go for a high-end printer but if you are working on a budget and you don’t
have so much money to spend on and you just want it as a hobby just so that you
can print some good quality canvas prints and you’re gonna be using it
every single day but maybe twice three times a month you can definitely go for
one of the budget options now the difference between getting a high-end
printer and a low-end printer is that high-end printers are definitely gonna
be much faster at printing and they will give you much better color quality
mainly they will have very good blacks so usually cheap printers don’t have
very in-depth blacks the blacks are usually a bit faded out so if you want
very accurate accurate black-and-white colors you’re definitely gonna try and
go for a more high-end printer and if you want to be using this thing for a
long time it’s definitely a better option to go
for the high quality ones because they will have more support and they are
built to last longer so make sure to know that all the product links are
gonna be mentioned in the description and if you want more in-depth details on
the subject make sure to check the written blog which will also be linked
in the description so coming up in number five we have the
Canon IP 8720 now this printer is gonna be your best budget option so first of
all this printer uses pigment inks which are known to be best for printing on
canvas it can also produce prints as large as 13 inches by 19 inches the
color resolution is 9600 x 2400 dpi okay so now let’s talk about the main concern
which is the ink it uses a six color ink system so a cool feature with this
printer is it does not use too much ink so if you are worried about printers
that always use the ink so fast this is not one of them this uses ink very well
it is extremely compatible with Windows and Mac devices you will not have any
problems with the drivers it also uses a fine nozzle which makes sure that your
prints are gonna come out and very high detail now what Canon promised is that
they use Koroma life 100 plus so basically what they say is that when you
print with this printer your photos are gonna be stored for up to 300 years so
what that means is that their ink quality is very high and lasts for a
very long time the only cons of this printer is that it is pretty loud and it
does not come with an automatic document feeder so don’t expect a roller or
option for the price of this thing the color quality is amazing you won’t
expect anything like this at this price and it’s an amazing choice if you are
starting out and you just want to get into your new hobby so coming up in
number four we have the Epson short color p800
this is a great high-end option so this printer can print up to 17 inches by 22
inches which is very good so you can print large canvas prints using this
printer it uses the recommended pigment-based inks and it also uses
epson’s ultra chrome HD inks so what’s so
amazing of this printer is it uses a three level black ink technology and an
advanced black and white mode for professional level black and white
prints so they have three different ink cartridges to make sure your black
colors come out very good another cool thing about this printer is it uses a
roll feeder so that’s gonna allow you to use roller
based media now I also usually recommend to go for
bigger ink cartridges because they are usually cheaper so if you go for smaller
ink cartridges you are usually paying for the ink cartridges themselves
however when you get the bigger ones you’re usually paying more for the ink
so what’s cool about this printer is it uses eighteen milliliter in cartridges
now the optimal base temperature for using this thing is gonna be between 50
and 95 Fahrenheit which is gonna be 10 to 35 Celsius but don’t worry storage is
not gonna be a problem you can store this printer from under minus 4 to 104
Fahrenheit which is minus 20 Celsius to 40 Celsius it also uses a touchscreen
interface and it has two younger brother versions it has the short color p600 and
the short color p400 those are also good options if you want to look into them
you can use this printer through Wi-Fi USB or Ethernet now the only thing to be
aware of when buying this printer is make sure you buy one that has a serial
code that is meant to be used in your country because what happened with other
users from the United States is they port this printer and it wasn’t intended
for use in the United States so when they had problems and they contacted
support they told them no we do not support this thing because it’s not
supported in the United States so make sure you buy this printer from a
reputable source and make sure it is intended for use in your country that
way you will get the full support that you deserve
coming off the number-three is gonna be the Epson Stylus Pro 3880 this is the
best high-end option but it’s also the most expensive this printer will best be
used in a business setting so if you want to use this thing and sell your own
canvas prints this is definitely a good option it is a big printer and it can
print sizes up to 17 inches by 22 inches it is world renowned for professional
printing and it uses an advanced micro piezo AMC printhead by Epson the color
quality on this printer is amazing so if you want your gallery quality colors
this is gonna be an amazing option for you so this is definitely the best
option for serious people are looking for the best printer possible it prints
fast and it has amazing print quality and it has many features that outshine
the competition it has amazing black and quality and it uses industry-leading
pigment ink technologies this thing is really designed without any compromise
so if you are a professional and you want the best this is gonna have all the
features you need the ink technology this thing uses is Epsilon’s ultra
chrome k3 with vivid magenta ink it also uses a Q photo hd2 technology and it has
specialized support by an expert team at Epson this printer has no qualms
whatsoever coming up in number two we have the Canon Pixma Pro 10 and in some
countries is called the Pro 10’s this printer has two different versions
there’s the Canon Pixma Pro 10 and there is the pro 100 they are both very good
options however the pro 10 uses pigment-based inks and the pro 100 uses
dye-based inks but you’re definitely gonna try and go for the pigment based
options because they work better for countless this printer is the best high
image range option so it can print up to 13 inches by 19 inches it has a 4800 dpi
print resolution which is highly detailed and grain free so this printer
uses a combination of pigment-based inks and Koroma
optimizer which adds uniform velocity mists and a wide color gamut for intense
blacks so this will definitely satisfy the professionals that want very intense
blacks so this thing reproduces extremely accurate colors and it is
compatible with individual PGI 72 ink tanks you can replace the inks that run
out so if you use one color dominantly you won’t need to swap out all the inks
you can replace the color that you need that needs filling this is another
printer that uses three dedicated monochrome inks for amazing
black-and-white pictures this is gonna get me the best professional quality
home based printer if you definitely use this in a studio or if you’re an artist
or a photographer this is definitely a good option for you you can also print
photos directly from your smartphone using canons easy photo print and many
people are using this printer to print on canvas and if you are interested in
printing on CDs and DVDs this also has that option the best thing about this
printer is the ink cartridges are very easy to refill from compliant inks and
from refill markets so you could easily refill the ink
cartridge itself without buying a whole new one which will definitely save you
lots of money in the long run the best thing about this Canon printer is that
Canon came up with an amazing solution for a wide known problem usually when
artists try to print something it comes out different than it looks on the
screen so Canon solved that problem they came up with this program called optimum
Lightroom which helps the prints come out exactly as you see them on the
screen without any tweaking so that means that you won’t be surprised after
you print the thing and it looks different than it does on the screen
it’s gonna look exactly like it looks on the screen coming up in number one is
gonna be the Epson Artisan 1430 this is your best mid-range option
the reason this printer is on number one is because many different people use it
to print on canvas so it’s extremely well known to print well on canvas you
could easily find many people that use this printer and for a very good reason
it prints on canvas without much problems it can print photos up to 13
inches by 19 inches and the photos look stunning out of this printer it uses
Epson inks that last a very long time and they are pigment-based inks it has a
very nice and easy to use printer control panel and as all the other
printers on this list you can print using wireless Wi-Fi Ethernet or USB and
the Wi-Fi on this printer works flawlessly and it’s very easy to set up
so this is gonna be the perfect option for home users and another cool thing
about this printer is it comes with bundled Photoshop Elements and it gives
magnificent color detail prints are water fade smudge and scratch resistant
so they usually don’t require any extra layers of protective spray after they
are printed you could also use this printer to print onto CDs or DVDs
directly so then you won’t need to use any stickers or labels the only cons of
this printer is it is rather slow when printing high resolution photos so if
speed is very important for you then this won’t be the best option for you
but other than that this is gonna be an amazing option and this printer also
does not have a roll media option so this where cost is gonna print anything
you need you’re gonna fall in love with the color quality and it’s never gonna
fade and don’t worry about reach the end of its lifecycle because it’s
built extremely well and it should last you a long time without any issues and
the nozzle heads don’t clog up as often as other printers so that it requires
less maintenance and you’re gonna have less problems in the future so he found
