Stylish design

With its compact, low profile styling, this All-in-One looks great and requires minimum space. The Snap Edge design makes replacing ink quick and easy, while two paper cassettes can hold plain and photo paper at the same time.

Creative software

My Image Garden software realises the full potential of your PIXMA, with easy management of photo printing, scanning and access to online services. Face recognition and superb photo organising capabilities enable you to search all the photos stored on your PC and combine them in creative ways. You can personalise your discs and make them easier to organise by printing directly on Blu-ray disc, CD and DVD. With Print Your Days you can arrange and print your photos direct from Facebook.

Save with PIXMA

Cut paper usage and create professional looking documents with automatic double-sided printing.

Save money with individual ink tanks as you only change the colour that has run out. Cost effective XL inks print up to 2.2 times more pages than a standard one, so need replacing less frequently – ideal if you print a lot.
