A Pantone calibrated licence has been granted to four new Canon GP series large format printers. Canon’s new series of imagePROGRAF printers (GP-4000, 2000, 300 and 200), featuring the world’s first fluorescent ink*, is also now the world’s first licenced as Pantone Calibrated for Pantone Pastels and Neons.
Canon and Pantone technicians worked directly for a system of colour recipes to ensure that the range of Pantone Pastels and Neons Colours could be simulated and reproduced with the new GP printers.
When Pantone determined that these colours could be simulated consistently, it was pleased to grant these four printers its Pantone Calibrated designation. In addition, Canon’s GP-4000 and GP-2000 printers were found by Pantone to achieve 99% coverage of Pantone Formula Guide Solid Coated Colours and received a Pantone Calibrated designation for those colours as well.
