Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has launched the world’s first aqueous inkjet models to include Fluorescent Pink ink. Comprised of the 24-inch image PROGRAF GP-2000, 44-inch image PROGRAF GP-4000, 24-inch image PROGRAF GP-200 and 36-inch imagePROGRAF GP-300, the imagePROGRAF GP series produces vivid neon colours for high value-added output and graphics that will captivate consumer’s attention and may help to increase print business opportunities.

“Radiant Infusion,” a Canon technology, layers the Fluorescent Pink ink with other inks on the paper surface during printing to create bright and soft colour reproduction. This allows for the printing of high colour graphics that support the expansion of a business’s printing capabilities. The Fluorescent Pink ink can also be used to print in specific areas such as text and objects to enable fluorescent colour expression that makes those areas stand out, according to a Canon press release. The user also has the option to print with or without the fluorescent ink completely. These GP series inks can replicate the colours that represent one’s corporate brand that can be difficult to reproduce on a conventional inkjet printer. The Radiant Infusion technology is also integrated into PosterArtist Lite software to allow users to create high impact posters easily.

“We are proud to deliver on our commitment to develop pioneering solutions that answer the demands of the industry and therefore increase business potential for Canon customers,” said Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A., Inc.
