Do the printers have a USB port for use with a thumb drive?
Yes. You have the ability to print and save PDF and JPEG files using a thumb drive.
What if I run out of ink while the printer is printing?
The imagePROGRAF GP-4000/2000 printers have a Sub-Ink Tank System that enables you to Hot-Swap (replace) ink tanks for uninterrupted printing.
Is there an option to add a second roll unit to these printers?
Yes. Canon offers an optional Multifunction Roll Unit that can be used in two different ways. First, this option enables you to load a second roll that can be of a different media type and size at the same time, allowing automatic switching from one paper to the other, without interrupting your workflow. Secondly, you can configure the printer as a bi-directional Take-up unit.
