Plain paper
The C3000 produces letter-quality print on most plain bond paper,
including cotton bond and photocopy paper. It can use A4, letter, or
legal sizes. The paper must be less than 0.008 inch (0.2 mm) thick, and
have a weight of 17–24 lbs (64–90 g/m
You can also use paper weighing 24–28 lbs (90–105 g/m
) by manually
feeding sheets, one at a time.
The C3000 can print on U.S. Commercial No. 10 (9.5 x 4.1 inches) and
European DL (220 x 110 mm) envelopes.

Canon Media
Canon provides the following media, all specifically developed to
extend the printing capability of your C3000. For details or purchase,
contact your local authorized Canon dealer.
Canon Bubble Jet Paper LC-301 (water resistant)
This is a water-resistant, letter-size paper specially developed for color
printing with Canon Color BJ printers such as the C3000. Images printed
on LC-301 paper are bright and vivid, and will not run if liquid is spilled
on them. Images printed on this paper stand up to normal office
highlighters, unlike images printed on other papers.
Canon High-Resolution Paper HR-101
This paper is designed to produce near-photographic quality print
output, with sharp, vivid graphics and photographs. You must use this
paper when printing with the BC-22 Photo Color BJ Cartridge. When
using HR-101 paper, be sure to print on the whiter side of the sheets,
and after printing a pack of this paper, use the cleaning sheet provided
with it to clean the printer roller.
Canon Transparencies CF-102
These letter-size overhead transparencies are specially designed for
Canon BJ color printers. Use these clear transparencies to produce crisp
and professional overhead presentations. Do not use normal
transparencies in the C3000, as they do not absorb ink and can cause the
ink to run.
Canon Back Print Film BF-102
This unique mylar-based translucent sheet allows you to print high-
quality letter-size color output — including photographs and graphics
— that you can view with a rear illumination device such as with a light
box. This gives you sharp, bright, vivid images you can use in meetings,
trade shows, and other presentations.
If you are printing from an application outside Windows, your
application or printer driver must support mirror image printing in
order to use back print film.
