Re: Printer setttings for highest quality

Hi nedmcculloch,


I would start with the default settings when you download the printer driver and then if you are not happy with the quality or the speed of the prints, then adjust the settings.


If this is a time sensitive matter and would like to review the printer settings, please contact our support group at 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666), Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM EST(excluding holidays).
