Nine inks and a smooth coating
produce gorgeous banners
Canon’s imagePrograf Pro-300 ($899.99) is a pro-grade photo and graphics arts printer capable of borderless output on media up to supertabloid or A3+, 13 by 19 inches, as well as on banners up to 39 inches long. A direct competitor with Epson’s SureColor P700 (on PCMag’s Best of the Year 2020 list), the Pro-300 replaces the long-in-the-tooth Pro-100 reviewed here back in early 2013. The P700 costs $100 less and supports paper rolls, but the Pro-300’s running costs are notably lower than the P700’s. Like other Canon Pro-grade photo printers, it turns out terrific-looking grayscale images, graphics, and photos. If you don’t need to print ultra-long banners, it’s an extremely worthy contender.
