Ho Chi Minh City, 14 November 2018 – Canon, a world leader in digital imaging, today announced its smallest photo printer that uses no ink for printing, and even prints upside down. The Canon Mini Photo Printer comes to the rescue of precious memories locked away inside smartphones, bringing them out into the world with a bold dash of personality and style.

    Mini Printer Press Release

    Printing Technology and Media
    The Canon Mini Photo printer harnesses ZINK Zero Ink™ Technology from ZINK™, a revolutionary dry-printing technology that enables printing in colour without the use of ink cartridges. It delivers 2x3-inch glossy photo prints that are smudge-proof and scratch-resistant, with a peel-and-stick reverse side that adheres effortlessly to the back of smartphones, laptops, tabletops, wall mirrors, or just about any smooth surface.
    Print Wirelessly From Smartphones
    The printer’s slim profile size translates to impressive portability – so compact that it fits into pockets, purses, long wallets and jackets easily. A built-in battery ensures true mobility without the need for the device to be attached to a power outlet.
    Bluetooth pairing with a smartphone happens with a simple press of a button located at the side of the printer, and full operation does not require devices to be arm-locked in the vicinity of a secure wireless network.

    Canon Mini Print Mobile App1
    The beautiful colour baseplates and dove-white two-tone design simplicity gives little hint to the varied, unbridled fun possible once the printer jumps to attention via the Canon Mini Print app, available for iOS and Android OS devices.
    Users can snap a photo through the in-app camera integration to begin with, or retrieve the photos from a variety of online albums, including Facebook, Instagram, Google Drive, and Dropbox.
    The app features an extensive library of photo-editing tools, creative filters, photo frames, creative stamps, and text boxes that add layers of expressiveness to the most ordinary of snapshots. Together with enhancements such as augmented reality (AR) face distortion and the option to draw on artwork before printing.
    For occasions where 2x3-inch images will simply not do, the app also offers collage printing of up to four images, or a tile print function that creates an enlarged print made up of four or nine prints.
    Pricing2 and Availability
    The Canon Mini Photo Printer is available in Slate Grey*3, Rose Gold*3 and Mint Green*3 and the box configuration includes the printer body, a starter pack of ten sheets of photo paper, and a charging cable.
