Product Review: Canon Pixma iP8720 Printer


This printer has been an amazing addition to my home office! There are so many features that I can benefit from. I have several interests and photography is one of them. I love taking photos of my family and printing large scale prints to hang around my home. I’ve always enjoyed having those little reminders of beautiful moments in my life and was so happy to have captured it. With the Canon Pixma iP8720 Printer I can print my own large scale photos at an excellent quality!

I really look forward to printing so many more photos of my family – mostly my animated 7 year old son – just so I can print them and hang them on my walls. When friends and family come over, they always ask where I get my prints and I just point to my new printer.

Here are the features as listed in the overview on their website:

Take your cherished memories to the next level with the PIXMA iP8720 Crafting Printer. The PIXMA iP8720 allows you to print stunning borderless photos up to 13″x19″ – a variety of sizes for all of your DIY projects! With a 6-color ink system, including gray ink, and 9600 x 2400 maximum color dpi, the detail is amazing. Whether you frame your photos, collect them in a scrapbook, or create custom home d cor, you’ll be able to relive those special moments exactly as you remember them.

Conveniently print your creative images with the PIXMA iP8720, thanks to its many features like AirPrint , Google Cloud Print  and PIXMA Printing Solutions (PPS). With PPS you can print photos and documents from your compatible mobile device.

ChromaLife100+: This system combines enhanced FINE print head technology with select genuine Canon photo papers and inks for beautiful borderless photos that will last up to 300 years when stored in an archival-quality photo album.7

Everything the website says is true: the photos I have printed have been of beautiful and sharp quality and they printed quickly. I was impressed!

One other thing that I am excited to use this printer for is when I plan to make a framed collage of quotes and sayings that inspire me. I don’t think I will ever use my old printer again. The Canon Pixma iP8720 does all that I need! It is most certainly an excellent investment if you love to print photos.
