The Color StyleWriter 1500 was a color inkjet printer from the StyleWriter series that was released by Apple Computer on March 14, 1996, replacing the StyleWriter 1200.[1]


The Color StyleWriter 1500 featured a maximum resolution of 720x360-dpi and could print at a speed of 3 pages-per-minute in black only, or about 3 minutes-per-page in color with ColorSync 2.0 support.[1][2] It is compatible with Canon BC-02/BC-05/BC-09F (black/color/flourescent color) bubblejet cartridges.[3]

An optional Color StyleWriter LocalTalk Module added support for LocalTalk networking without the need for a host computer.[4] An optional StyleWriter EtherTalk Adapter added connectivity to 10BASE-T and 10BASE2 Ethernet for faster networking.[1]

Included fonts[]

64 TrueType fonts are included on disk.[1] Support for PostScript Type 1 fonts can be added by using Adobe Type Manager.[5]


The Color StyleWriter 1500 was soon superseded by the HP-based Color StyleWriter 4100, which was announced on June 16, 1997.[2][6]
