Canon C1

Image Adjustment

The image should be centered on the gap if printing cross page spreads.  Otherwise, full bleed images can be printed through the gap entirely as necessary.

Printing Tips

  • The Canon C1 can handle FlexBind® paper weights up to 209 gsm out of the cassette or 256 gsm out of the bypass drawer.  Since it is generally preferrable to print FlexBind® sheets with the hinge on the side (rather than hinge leading/trailing) the product will be run grain long through the press.  Auto duplexing can be an issue with papers above 200gsm when run grain-long.  Therefore, for heavier stocks, it is recommended to use the bypass tray and simplex print.
  • FlexBind® sheets can be run with the hinge in any orientation.  Ideally, in-board or out-board (in the print direction) is preferred.
  • Slight image deletions when printing in the gap are normal.  When bound in a book, those deletions become less noticeable.
  • Depending on the limitation of the equipment, some heavier weight materials may not auto-duplex.  Therefore, these products should be manually-duplex printed.
  • It is recommended that the bypass drawer is used for feeding.
  • If the printer jams repeatedly at the output tray of the 700, run the sheets in a manual duplex mode with the paper weight selector set on the maximum paper weight setting.
  • Fan sheets gently when loading into the feed drawer.
  • UV coating can be used normally with FlexBind®.
