Paper Specs

The iP8720 works with all types of inkjet paper. A number of sizes are can be printing without borders.

  • Sheets 4" x 6" up to 13" x 26.61" through the auto-sheet feed path
  • CD printing


  • Dye ink system means fast print speeds and broad paper compatibility.
  • 5-colors system provides good color and contrast.
  • Top feed paper tray, critical for maximum inkjet paper compatibility.
  • Pigment black for text printing allows for rapid print speeds and saves photo ink usage.


  • The standard ink cartridge capacity of 7 mL seems small in comparison to other desktop models. The XL tanks at 11 mL are a better choice. However, we feel that pricing for the larger tanks should reflect some volume discount, but that is not the case at this time.
  • The best possible output from the iP8720 comes when using a printer color profile. For most users, letting the printer manage color output (not using a profile) will yield more than acceptable results. For the most critical user, using an inkjet paper with an iP8720 printer profile will satisfy their higher expectations.
