This is a standard ("Preferences") Amiga printer driver for Stylus
Color inkjet printer from Epson. It features resolutions up to
720x720 dpi, with optional MicroWeave printing (an Epson feature
that uses overlapping passes to reduce banding). Resolutions are
selected by the Preferences density setting:
Density 1 180x180
Density 2 360x180
Density 3 360x360
Density 4 360x360, MicroWeave
Density 5 720x720
Density 6 720x720, MicroWeave
Density 7 720x720, MicroWeave (identical to Density 6)
The driver implements horizontal and vertical whitespace stripping,
as well as Epson compression mode 2 ("TIFF v4.0 packbits mode") to
minimize the amount of data that must be sent to the printer and
improve printing speed. A beta tester reported speed on an Amiga
3000 comparable to that of a 66MHz 486 with Epson's MS-Windows
The driver implements a very simple color correction (perhaps more
appropriately called density correction) for 720dpi modes to
prevent them from printing excessively dark. This gives results
similar to other drivers on the same printer (for example, the
PageStream 2.x LQ2550C driver). We are currently developing
version 2.0, which will feature improved color correction to
provide more accurate colors and better gradation.
Version 1.1 includes a StylusColor preferences program for
Workbench 2.04 and later that allows selection of bidirectional
mode, disabling of the 720 dpi density correction, and allows
selection of MicroWeave in densities which normally don't use
that option (1, 2, 3, and 5).
1.1 is a free update for registered owners of version 1.0. Email
firstname.lastname@example.org with your serial number and a request for an
upgrade, and we'll email 1.1 back to you. Thanks to The Flying
Circus BBS (phones 210-521-8061, -8062, -8063), we now have a BBS
product support area. Send private mail to "Endicor" with your
serial number and request access to the product support area.
Once you have access to the Endicor area you can download updates.
If you wish to have a new 1.1 disk shipped to you, send a check for
US$4 to our address above with a note requesting 1.1 and noting
your serial number. The $4 covers the cost of the disk and manual
- Workbench 1.3 or higher. (2.04 and later required for the new
features in version 1.1)
- An Epson Stylus Color printer (of course).
Regular price is $44.95. We are please to announce that the $34.95
introductory price has been extended through the end of February,
1995, in order to allow those ordering from our new distributors
to take advantage of the introductory price.
Texas residents must add sales tax (6.25%). San Antonio
residents add Texas and San Antonio sales tax (totals 7.75%).
Shipping and handling is $2, or $4 for UPS Second Day Air,
or $9 for UPS Overnight. We can offer electronic delivery for
orders prepaid by check or money order, in which case there is
no shipping charge. Please contact us for details.
We can accept payment by check, money order, or COD ($4 extra).
Sorry, we cannot accept credit cards at this time. We are
working to find distributors who can.
All prices in US funds. Please contact us by phone or email for
international orders. You may wish to use electronic delivery to
save on shipping.
When ordering by mail, please include: Name, shipping address,
postal address, phone number, and method of delivery. If you
include an Internet or FidoNet email address, we can use it to
notify you of updates rather than using traditional mail.

The driver takes advantage of Stylus Color features not present
on older ESC-P2 printers, such as compression mode 2 (packbits).
Because of this it will not work on previous Stylus printer models.
