Calibration on the Type of Paper You Use
NOTE
For information on which paper you should use for calibration when you print on paper registered in the paper database, contact your local authorized Canon dealer.
If you print on custom paper, which is a type of paper specified by a user, perform calibration with the paper in a group of standard paper whose basis weight and surfaces are close to those of the custom paper.
The paper names are subject to change without notice. For more information, contact your local authorized Canon dealer.
