How to Import Custom Media Types for Canon iPF Inkjet Printers

Import custom media types ICC profiles Canon inkjet printer

When printing to Canon imagePROGRAF iPF6300, iPF6350 or iPF8300 large format inkjet printers you need to make sure that you are using the correct ICC Profile and Media Type. Both are available for download at http://www.lexjet.com/Profiles.aspx.

The Canon Media Configuration Tool for these three printers allows you to add custom media types for third-party media. Importing a custom media type offers users several advantages over selecting a generic media type. It allows the following information to be built into the media type file:

  • Paper Feed Adjustment (especially important with canvas)
  • Roll paper settings like automatic cutting, drying time and borderless printing
  • Ink limits, vaccum strength and head height (all important in telling the printer how to lay down ink)

In the videos below you will learn how to import custom media types with the Canon Media Configuration Tool using a PC and Mac. If you have any questions about this or importing custom media types for other printers, please give us a call…

  1. I have a Mac with OS10.6 snd new IPF8300 and I am trying to import custom paper profiles into the configuration tool with help from your video on this subject. When I get to import > Browse > desktop ( with profiles on it) all items are gayed out and cannot be accessed for importing. What is this problem?

    Thanks,

    James

  2. Hi James,

    The Media Configuration Tool can only import media types (.AM1 files). Profiles are installed differently. You can check out our installing profiles video for the correct process here:
