More than 2,000 imagePRESS C800 series printers have now been shipped to customers Europe-wide since its launch just over a year ago (July 2014). Thanks to this exceptional demand, Canon secured the leading share of the cutsheet colour production press market in Europe in the last quarter of 2014.
Comprising two models – the imagePRESS C700 and C800 – the series presents an even more attractive proposition for print service providers as it has been certified a FograCert Validation Printing System by German research association, Fogra, in line with the requirements of ISO 12647-8:20121.
Customer feedback to date indicates that the success of the C800 series is due to a number of factors including the quality of colour reproduction, flexibility and the high levels of productivity achievable:
The Canon imagePRESS C700 delivers a level of quality I’ve never seen before from toner-based digital print technology. What’s more, its productivity as a light production press is second to none, especially on heavier paper.
Braulio Sánchez, partner at SPRINT FINAL Publicidad.
Seven years ago, I was one of the first Canon imagePRESS owners in the UK. I’ve had a number of models since and for me the C700 is the best yet – the print quality is superb, the back-to-back registration is stunning and consistently so, and because of its small footprint, I’ve saved a significant amount of money on rent and rates.
Rob Exton, owner and managing director, Print by Design.
To date we have run 300,000 pages and had only one error. It’s the first time I’ve had a new machine with as few difficulties.
