Canon launches a new look 'Your Print' - A unique 'try before you buy' service for customers
Canon, leader in imaging technology, is pleased to announce a new version of the free-of-charge service called 'Your Print'. 'Your Print' allows customers to receive a Canon print sample of any digital image they choose to submit*.
Malcolm Hills, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging in the UK and Ireland, explains, "Our innovative and unique 'Your Print' service was first launched in January 2003 and we have printed and posted thousands of print samples to users interested in trying a Canon Bubble Jet printer. The feedback to 'Your Print' has been fantastic and we hope to build on our success with the new look site. Visitors can now choose from six different printer models including the award winning Bubble Jet i850 and i950.
The explosion in digital camera sales means that many more users now require a high quality printer to produce their photos at home. With such a vast array of models on the market, choosing the right printer can be a difficult and confusing decision to make. Our 'Your Print' service gives potential customers the opportunity to see one of their own photos printed on a Canon Bubble Jet printer without having to buy the printer first."
The process remains very simple. The customer visits the 'Your Print' website - www.yourprint.canon-europe.com - selects a printer, fills in their details, completes a brief questionnaire, and then uploads their image from their computer.
The image is then printed on Canon's Photo Paper Pro 4"x6" for Borderless Printing (PR101 4"x6") using the selected printer and posted back by First Class post with a covering letter and a product brochure - all completely free of charge.
The Canon-owned online photo sharing service, Fotango, fulfils the 'Your Print' service and all customers who submit images by 3pm should receive their print the following day.
The Bubble Jet printers that can now be selected for the customer's print sample are the i450, i470D, i550, i850, i950 and SmartBase MPC200Photo. New models will be added as they are launched.
