With the rise of Etsy, Pinterest and Not On The High Street, more and more people are unleashing their creativity in crafting. Whether it’s designing your own Greetings Cards, selling digital artwork and stickers or even making fun family-friendly games at home. Printing is a vital part of this industry and Canon are standing at the forefront with its range of crafting and artwork printers. This post will explain what to look out for and a few of our top recommendations. We’ve covered some of the best printers for card printing, including Canon printers.
What To Look Out For
Finding a crafting printer isn’t as straightforward as getting one to cover all grounds. Usually, crafting requires a high GSM support, we recommend something capable of 300gsm. A few more things to look out for are the printer sizes, amount of inks taken and the Dots-Per-Inch (DPI).
