For the past year, I’ve been thinking of a potential business idea. I wanted to use my passion for creative planning and turn it into a business. Right now, I’m not yet sure exactly what business it will be. But for sure, it’s going to involve a printer. So, when I learned that Canon was going to launch the new Canon Pixma G Series Printers, I knew I had to check it out.
