Featured Product: Canon imagePRESS Lite C165

With each technology replacement we purchase, we’re always looking for new and exciting ways to upgrade. When contracts are up on our mobile phones, we look at things like reception, memory, speed, and camera quality. When you put the newest phones next to each other, however, there’s not a lot that sets them apart. Until there’s a real game changer in the bunch—remember when the first smartphones came to market? The first iPhone? The first Android?—there isn’t much to get excited about. When looking for a new multi-function printer (MFP), there are several upgrades to consider as well, depending on essential work demands and business goals, but there hasn’t been an option like the Canon imagePRESS Lite C165 before.

In fact, it isn’t fair to call the C165 a multi-function printer because it falls somewhere between a traditional walk-up MFP and a machine for use in light production environments. Because of its unique hybrid-like capabilities, it combines the best of both these print worlds into one platform.


How it Works

The Canon imagePRESS Lite C165 brings production-level capabilities to the masses. In today’s workplace, you need the ability to be resilient and versatile while improving productivity. At the same time, meeting tight deadlines with a lean staff requires equipment that’s intuitive, adaptive, and reliable. The Canon C165 bridges the gap for companies needing a multi-function printer that also has light production capabilities. With professional print quality and media versatility for creative graphics applications, you can take your work documents further.

From the start of a print job to admiring the finished product, the Canon imagePRESS Lite C165 is designed to deliver. The machine has optimized workflow capabilities and is ready to work with whatever copy management service you’re used to working with. Send your documents digitally or scan them with high productivity—up to 230 duplex images per minute. Using the print job management software to prepare jobs for production is easy, too. Using the user interface, you can filter the job list, drag and drop jobs to the import list, and view toner and paper/drawer status all from your workstation.

Common Use Cases

With multi-DAT for color consistency, 2400 dpi, long-sheet capability, and in-line finishing, there’s not a lot the C165 can’t do. Start offering the following capabilities to your clients:

  • Manuals, reports, catalogs
  • Promotional materials
  • Business cards
  • Invitations and brochures
  • Direct mail (with or without variable data)

Unlike a traditional MFP, the C165 has loop sensor control to maintain media alignment to help keep high quality on heavy, coated, and banner stocks. The C165 has multiple finishing configuration options, including stapling, booklet-making, and folding.
