Help Make Your Memories Last with the New Canon Selphy Photo Printer

For crafting, decorating and more -- the new Canon Selphy compact photo printer provides high quality prints quickly and easily

MELVILLE, N.Y. -- Scrapbookers and parents rejoice as Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has announced the Selphy CP1500 compact photo printer as the newest addition to the Selphy printer line. Delivering long lasting, durable, high-quality prints in less than a minute, gifting friends and family physical memories and keepsakes which can be shared and enjoyed for decades (when stored in an album) has never been easier.

Designed with Space in Mind

In a stylish and compact design, the Canon Selphy CP1500 photo printer is small enough to fit in a pocket or small purse and can be taken on the go -- whether using the included AC adapter or the optional battery (sold separately). Its diminutive size doesn't make the CP1500 short on function, though. The printer's standard print size is 4"x 6" postcard -- printed in approximately 41 seconds2. With the purchase of the optional cassette (sold separately)5, it can also print card (2.1" x 3.4") and square label (2.1" x 2.1") sizes. Thanks to protective coating, the CP1500 creates long-lasting photos that can withstand wear for more than 100 years when stored in an album3. Those looking for a bit more fun can personalize photos with a variety of borders, text and pattern overlays -- such as hearts around your family or paw prints for your furry friends. The creative possibilities are endless -- customers can use these photos for crafting, journaling, decorating or for school projects such as family trees.

The Selphy CP1500 compact photo printer comes with diverse connectivity, allowing users to connect wirelessly to a compatible smart phone using the Canon PRINT Inkjet/Selphy app. Additionally, users can utilize the Selphy Photo Layout app to convert a URL into a QR code that can be printed onto a photo -- directing to social media pages or to photo locations on a map.

Specific product specs of the Selphy CP1500 compact photo printer include:

  • Dye-Sub technology
  • Accommodates paper sizes: Postcard (4.0" x 6.0") and, with purchase of optional cassette (sold separately), Card Size (2.1" x 3.4") and Square Label (2.1" x 2.1")
