Connected printers for a connected world

Quickly connect devices at home with Access Point Mode to wirelessly use the printer without even needing to be on the same Wi-Fi network. For days when you’ve no time to spare, documents can be scanned and sent directly to your mobile device so you can take them with you.

The printers also come with access to CREATIVE PARK PREMIUM, an online service for Canon genuine ink users featuring inspirational designs and projects from professional artists and photographers.

With the PIXMA MG3040 series, photo enthusiasts can create new 5x5” square style photo prints, perfect for framing and displaying in the home or even printing as gifts for friends and family.
