Last month, we used Canon’s IVY photo printer to make some cute back-to-school pennant flags. We love our IVY printer because it’s small and portable, so it’s easy to print photos from anywhere. But did you know that Canon also has printers exclusively for crafters? And they just introduced a new one! Today we’re showing you how you can use Canon’s new crafting printer to make your own printable birthday cards and more.
Getting Crafty With Canon
With Canon’s new crafting printer, you can do borderless printing on 12”x12” paper and pre-folded greeting cards. You can use it to print photos, too. Just adjust the paper feeder depending on your project. Since this model is an all-in-one printer, you can also use it for scanning and copying.
Some other great features that you might find convenient for crafting are Wi-Fi support, AirPrint®, and Mopria® Print Service. This means you can wirelessly print photos, documents, web pages, and more from your Apple® and Android™ devices. So, for example, if you see a DIY project on our site that you want to make, you could print the tutorial from wherever you are. Then it’ll be waiting for you when you get home!
Ok, now let’s get to the DIY project! This printable set includes the following: gift box, gift tags, 5″x7″ folded “Happy Birthday” card, and an A7 envelope. We used Canon’s new crafting printer to print the gift box and tags on 12”x12” paper. Then we printed the happy birthday card on pre-folded 5”x7” greeting card paper.
And thanks to our friends at Canon, we’re giving you this printable set for FREE. Just scroll down to download your printable birthday card, gift tags, and more. You’ll also need the two materials below.
If you want to look up Canon’s crafting printers, make sure to check out their site! Their new crafting printer is called the PIXMA TS9521C Wireless Printer. Have you used any of their crafting printers? Let us know what you think!
