Smallest Apple Printer Unboxing

The Color StyleWriter 2200 featured a resolution of 720x360-dpi and could print at a speed of 5 pages-per-minute in black only, or about 3 minutes-per-page in color. It is compatible with Apple M3909/M3908 or Canon BC-10/BC-11 (black/color) bubblejet cartridges for the BJC-70. For portable operation, it can run on a rechargeable nickel–metal hydride battery.[2][3]

The printer can be networked through ColorShare software, which requires a host Macintosh computer to do so.[4]

Included fonts[]

64 TrueType fonts are included on disk.[2] Support for PostScript Type 1 fonts can be added by using Adobe Type Manager.[5]


The Color StyleWriter 2200 was discontinued in 1996.[6]
