The Canon PIXMA TS5350a is simply superb value
If you’re in the market for a new, inexpensive printer, then you can’t go wrong with the Canon PIXMA TS5350a. That’s especially true at the moment, because Currys is offering 10% off all Canon printers until 1 August as an early bird Back to School offer, making it even more of a bargain than usual.
It’s a stylish, compact, affordable, all-in-one wireless printer that can handle all your family’s printing needs in style. Here are seven reasons why you should check it out.
It does it all
If you’re not familiar with printer lingo, the “all-in-one” title means that it does it all. It prints, obviously, but it also scans and copies documents that you pop face down on the built-in scanner.
That’s especially handy if you’ve been sent a contract to sign. Rather than messing around with an unprofessional-looking digital signature, you can just print the document, sign it in pen, and then scan it back in to complete your business in minutes.
Easy to set up and use with brilliant results
It once felt like printers were designed to be counterintuitive and hard to use. Not so the Canon PIXMA TS5350a, which you’ll have up and running in minutes whatever device you use.
With speeds of up to 13 pages per minute, your printing needs will be met quickly and efficiently. And with Canon’s FINE cartridges with ChromaLife100 ink, you’ll be dazzled by the brilliant results.
It’s not just for printer paper
Standard printer paper is most printers’ bread and butter, but the PIXMA TS5350a isn’t just limited to that. You can let your and your family’s creativity run wild with support for double-sided matte, iron-on transfer media and more.
That means that your photos will be printed beautifully from the convenience of your own home, and you can even make your designs easily transferable to tee shirts, hats or any other fabric.
Cut the wires
In the bad old days, your printer would be tethered to your PC, meaning you’d have to boot it up, log on and print. Barring its power lead, the Canon PIXMA TS5350a is completely wireless.
That not only means you can keep it in a different room to the computer, but also that multiple devices can connect to it without having to juggle connections. With support for Windows, macOS, Android and iOS, you can print your documents any time from anywhere in the house.
Apps to make life easier… and more fun
The PIXMA TS5350a is compatible with AirPrint for iOS and Mopria for Android, but there are also three free apps to make you both more efficient and more creative in how you use the printer.
The Canon PRINT app is the first one you need, letting you print, copy and scan from the comfort of your smartphone, no PC required. You can check up on your printer’s status or even print or scan to the cloud. And you can even make copies with your phone camera, by using the “Smartphone Copy” function and saving as a PDF.
The Easy-PhotoPrint Editor app takes your photo-printing experience to the next level, letting you easily edit your photos before they come near an ink cartridge. You can create collages, cards, posters and more via an easy interface with plenty of ready-to-use templates if you’re lacking inspiration.
Last but not least, there’s the Creative Park app. Families will love this, as it lets you create paper craft animals, puppets, pop-up cards and decorations all from your Canon printer to really bring your children’s creativity to life and beat back rainy-day boredom – all for free.
Kinder to the planet with free cartridge recycling
Not sure what to do with ink cartridges when they’re empty? Rather than guiltily binning them or sticking them in a drawer, you can let Canon take them off your hands with its free Canon Cartridge Recycling Programme.
Just download and print a Freepost label with your fresh ink cartridge, and you can ship your old ones back to Canon for reuse with minimal fuss.
