Initial Thoughts about the Canon Pixma G3020

5 years ago, I won a printer from a raffle. Since then, I've only used that printer for all my daily needs. I loved this printer though I always wished that the photo output was more vibrant and long-lasting. 

Some people told me that for those needs of mine, I should try a Canon printer. Over the years, I would hear Canon being recommended whenever I would talk about my journaling or memory-keeping projects. Finally, I bit the bullet and now have a Canon Pixma G3020. 

First Impressions

I loved that it was not as bulky as my previous printer. It had the same purpose as being a scanner, copier, and printer but this was far less bulky. This meant that it was also not as heavy which is a definite plus because I tend to move my things around in my little office whenever I feel stuck and looking for an idea.


I love that it's a sleek combo of gray and black. It's not hard to fit into the overall design of my workspace though if it came in baby pink, it would be so much better. Ahem ahem. Pastel-colored printer collection please hahaha. 

Speed of Printing 

My old printer would take ages to print. One page can take more than one minute and if I use the best print options, it can take at least 5 minutes even. When you're in a rush to do something, this can be frustrating. 


This is the one thing that I don't like so much about the Canon Pixma G3020. It's a bit noisier than my old printer. However, this is something that I can live with for sure. 

Overall, I'm very happy with the performance of the Canon Pixma G3020. I've tried printing 300+ pages and it took less than 30 minutes for everything to get printed out. Definitely impressed me. 

Now, I just need to see how it does when I print photos and stickers. I hope that it will produce really good quality photos and clear stickers so that I can finally have an all in one printer that serves the needs of my son for his modules as well as my journaling and memory keeping needs. 


  1. Nice! I have an HP but will definitely take a look at these when I need a new one! They don't seem to last too long!

  2. Same here, Canon was the first that's recommended to me whenever I asked for a great camera or printer brand. Hehe

  3. I have heard lots of good things from this printer! A well-working printer is a must for the family because we have soo many documents that need to be printed.

  4. Excellent review for this printer, no doubt this must be a product that's worth every penny spent.

  5. Seems like a very nice printer. I have had an Epson for a while and it’s time to replace. I’ll look into this printer for sure.

  6. Oooh this sounds like a really wonderful printer.

  7. Wow! Canon Pixma G3020 looks like a great printer! I need to get one, so will check this out surely 🙂

    Everything Enchanting

  8. We have been using an old HP model. I would definitely check this out.
