How to Use Canon SELPHY 1200 Photo Printer

Canon SELPHY CP1200:

This tutorial will guide you for how to use the Canon Photo Printer SELPHY CP1200 to print a photo directly from your smartphone. Also, this photo printer model is of black color and it has more options than the white model because it is able to act as an access point.

Step 1:

In the labeled picture below, you can see everything you will need to start printing your photos. The SELPHY CP1200 package includes the paper carrier and a power supply. Paper sets and ink sets can be bought alone in one package for the SELPHY printer. And this package will contain 108 paper sets along with 3 ink sets.
