MELVILLE, N.Y. -- December 2, 2013

Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the
North Pole PIXMA app for Facebook, where parents can help their children
create a holiday wish to be sent directly to Santa’s workshop in the North
Pole and watch it be printed on a Canon PIXMA printer using cloud technology.

The Canon North Pole PIXMA app will provide a unique and interactive
experience allowing parents to help their children to write, draw or use
pre-selected images to create their holiday wish. Once the wish has been
customized, it is sent through the cloud to Santa’s workshop, where users will
be shown a video of Santa receiving their wish printed on a Canon PIXMA
printer. Bringing smiles to children and parents alike, the video features a
cast of iconic holiday characters, including North Pole workshop elves, the
Abominable Snowman, Mrs. Claus and Santa.

“Through the North Pole PIXMA app, Canon enthusiasts can further tap into the
magic of the holidays and fully experience the ease of use of Canon PIXMA
printers,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager,
Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. “The new Canon PIXMA
printers featuring cloud technology allow for our consumers to print what
matters most to them quickly and conveniently to almost anywhere.”

In addition to easily sending wishes to Santa, Canon PIXMA printers with cloud
technology give users the ability to print photos and documents directly from
popular cloud services including Facebook, Twitter®, Flickr®, Dropbox®,
Photobucket® and EVERNOTE®.
