Canon IPF6400 Printer
Jan 23, 2013

I currently have an Epson SP4000 and am getting tired of dealing with the ink clogs.  The constant work to keep it cleared wastes a lot of expensive ink.  I am looking at a new printer and am considering the Canon IPF6400.

First, I am looking for user experience from anyone who has this (or other IPF) printer.

Second, I have a specific question regarding paper size.  I currently print greeting cards in addition to regurlar prints.  The paper stock is 7x10 inches.  Canon says that 8 inches is the minimum width for the printer.  For the Epson, they basically siad the same thing but you could disable the paper size checking and the printer handled the card stock just fine.  Does anyone know if the Canon IPF printers will also let you get away with a 7 inch wide paper?  I could maybe try turning the paper so it feeds as 10 inches wide but, depending on the paper feed path, this might put a curl in the already prescored paper plus the leading/trailing margin requirements would most likely mess with the ability to print the full image.  Right now I have to arrange the image so that the leading edge on the card allows for the startup feed margin on my Epson.

Thanks
