“Whether a customer is looking to print beautiful photos or important business projects, the EPSON Stylus C66 and C86 deliver water, smudge and fade-resistant, long-lasting quality at affordable prices,” said Lowell Wolf, product manager, consumer ink jet printers, Epson. “While both printers offer incredibly fast print speeds for everyday text and document printing, they also make it easy to share special photos.”

Included with both printers are 20 sheets of photo paper, Epson Software Film Factory for easy photo storage, printing and organization, as well as a free membership to Epson’s exclusive photo craft and photo sharing Web sites, giving customers all the resources needed to start printing at home.

    About the Stylus C66

The EPSON Stylus C66 prints amazing borderless 4″ x 6″ frame-ready photos, as well as text and graphics with ease. It offers variable size ink droplets — as small as four picoliters — to ensure incredible quality and detail. The printer delivers fast text print speeds with up to 17 pages per minute in black and up to 9 ppm in color.
    
The EPSON Stylus C66 is Windows compatible, offers USB 1.1 connectivity for quick and easy set up and features a DC motor for quiet printing of any output from start to finish.

    About the Stylus C86

The EPSON Stylus C86 delivers sharp, vivid results with remarkable speed and precision. It offers borderless printing for frame-ready prints in several popular sizes, including 4″ x 6″, 8″ x 10″ and letter-sized prints. In addition to extraordinary output, the EPSON Stylus C86 makes it easy to get more done with incredible high-speed printing. It delivers up to 22 ppm in black and up to 12 ppm in color. With ultrafine ink droplets as small as three-picoliters, the EPSON Stylus C86 provides exceptional photo-quality results. The printer is both Windows and Macintosh compatible and offers USB 1.1 and parallel connectivity.
    
For added versatility, the EPSON Stylus C86 features optional networking solutions for printer sharing. An optional 10/100 Base-Tx Ethernet Print Server provides customers with wired local-area networking capabilities, while an optional 802.11b Wireless Ethernet Print Server supports cable-free printing from Wi-Fi networks.

    The DURABrite Ink Advantage

The EPSON Stylus C66 and C86 utilize Epson’s exclusive DURABrite inks in order to produce impressive looking, durable output that is water-resistant, fade-resistant and smudge-resistant. Because DURABrite inks are pigment-based inks, output from the Stylus C66 and C86 can be submerged in water without the ink coming off the page, unlike dye-based inks, which typically run and smudge. DURABrite inks enable creators of photographs, fliers, menus, signs, postcards, and any other printed output, to produce documents and images that will withstand damage caused by moisture-based threats such as rain, spills, humidity, or wet hands. Bleed-through is also reduced since DURABrite inks rest on the surface of the paper, which is ideal for applications that require double-sided printing.

    Media Flexibility

The EPSON Stylus C66 and C86 offer great results on many different types of media ranging from ordinary plain paper to DURABrite Ink Glossy Photo Paper, designed especially for use with DURABrite ink to create long-lasting borderless glossy prints. The printer also supports a variety of other Epson specialty media including Epson Premium Bright White Paper, Glossy Photo Paper, Premium Semigloss, Matte Paper Heavyweight, Double-sided Matte, and Greeting Cards.

    Availability, Warranty and Support

The EPSON Stylus C66 and C86 are currently shipping to major computer, office and electronic superstores, a variety of retail stores nationwide and can also be purchased through mail order, PC manufacturers, the Internet and Epson’s own retail site, http://www.epsonstore.com/. Each printer carries a one-year Epson Exchange Limited Warranty, enabling customers to receive a replacement printer if a problem cannot be corrected by telephone technical support. The printer models are also supported by the EPSON Connection, a customer support and technical assistance line.
