Canon and Ilford are Giving Away Free Pro Prints

Canon Ilford Try My Photo

Canon and Ilford just launched a campaign to promote their respective professional printer and paper products.  To entice photographers to look further into their products, the companies are giving away free 8.5″ x 11″ prints using Canon PIXMA printers and Ilford GALERIE Smooth Pearl paper.

To take advantage of this offer, you can upload a JPEG image to their “Try My Photo” website and it will be printed and mailed to you for free.

Use these links to find deals on the PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II and PIXMA Pro9500 Mark II printers.  You can find Ilford GALERIE paper here at B&H.

    I took advantage of this service to help select between the Canon 9000 & 9500. It was great to see my own photos in a head-to-head. Every picture printer manufacturer should offer this.

    Just thought I’d mention that I’ve received my free STANDARD 3X5 prints. Not that I’m not grateful for free stuff, mind you, but the trade was supposed to be my name and e-mail address [so they can pitch their products] for up to 3 8.5″X11″ prints.

    Not impressed with Canon & Ilford’s slight-of-hand.

    I agree with Michael Mark…I appreciate the free offer, but just received my 4×6 prints in the mail and (same as Michael) was surprised that I did not receive 8.5×11 prints as stated in this Photography Bay article. When I looked at help on the TryMyPhoto site (after receiving the prints), it stated that the print size would be 4×6. I don’t know if that was changed after receiving lots of requests for the offer or if that was stated from the beginning and Photography Bay got it wrong.
