Canon U.S.A., Inc., announced a new version of the IVY Mini Photo Printer, the IVY 2. The IVY 2 is an upgrade from its predecessor; delivering higher quality pictures, a faster-charging battery, and better connectivity, enabling DIY creators to “Print, Peel, Stick and Go”.
IVY creators quickly and easily print photos of family, friends, pets or any other source of inspiration from their compatible smartphone onto sticky photo paper. Plus, a new, expanded 100-sheet photo sticker paper pack (purchased separately) frees up everyday IVY users to continually update their self-expression without the continued worry of running out of sheets.
“Our Canon customers continually motivate us to focus on enhancing daily experiences and preserving important memories, whether they are using Canon products for the first time or they have been with us since the beginning,” said Isao “Sammy” Kobayashi, senior vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “As a Canon leader, the IVY product line is personal for me, as we are frequently finding our product’s user-base is new to the brand, and so I am very excited for our team to bring you our new IVY 2 Mini Photo Printer with enhanced picture quality and improved user experience.”
The IVY 2 can easily fit in a pocket or bag. The printer is available in two colors – pure white and blush pink. It takes just a few minutes to set up, and the multi-color LED will clearly tell you the printer status. Using a compatible USB cable, the printer can fully charge in as little as 45 minutes. The IVY 2 easily connects to your compatible smartphone with Bluetooth, and utilizes ZINK Zero Ink Technology from ZINK. ZINK paper is available in pre-cut circle sticker form (purchased separately), for those whose lives can’t be confined to straight edge.
To set and send print jobs, users download the free Canon Mini Printer App, which offers the option to print individual smudge-free 2×3 prints or stickers. The app includes creative filters, such as photo frames and stickers, image collage templates, as well as additional photo-editing tools including added text, fun frames, and the option to draw.
