Canon MP PVC Card Tray - 2 Cards - Printing from iOS

Certain Canon printers that use the MP tray can be printed to from iOS (iPhone or iPad). Specifically, the Canon TS83xx, TS70x, and TS95xx models work with iOS.


  1. Do not insert the tray until the printer tells you to do so - follow the steps below.
  2. Generate your Printable in ID Maker.
  3. When the Printable opens, go to the Share icon and scroll down to select "Print".
  4. When the "Printer Options" view comes up, select the Canon printer you'll be using.
  5. Tap on "Options". Note that it sometimes takes the iOS device a few seconds to load the options from the printer.
  6. Tap on "Paper" and select "120 x 120 mm".
  7. Place 2 cards in the PVC Card Tray (even if you are only printing on one).
    1. If you are printing more than 2 cards you can send all cards to the printer at once, the printer will print them in order, asking you to re-insert the tray after each print completes.
  8. Don't insert the PVC Card Tray yet.
  9. Tap on "Print" on your iPhone/iPad.
  10. The printer will then make some noise for a few moments, it should retract the paper output tray, eventually it will stop and it will tell you on the printer's screen to insert the tray.
  11. Now insert the tray, pushing it in as far in as it will go without force.
  12. Press the OK button on the printer's screen to start printing.
  13. If you print with a bleed, be sure to turn your tray upside down to remove the cards onto your desk, then wipe the tray with a paper towel/cloth to get excess ink off the tray. Doing this will avoid getting ink smudges on your hands and cards.

Where to Insert Tray

On Canon TS printers (TS7xx, TS8xxx, TS9xxx) you insert the tray between the paper output tray and the section above it. You need to push the paper output tray all the way into the printer so it is flush with the upper section. This will form a slot for the card tray to be inserted.

You do not want to insert the tray until the printer signals that it's safe to do so!
