A compact and stylish premium quality photo printer, the Epson Stylus Photo R220 provides home users with a cost-effective solution that will print photographs up to A4 and also personalise printable CDs and DVDS.

September 2005: The Epson Stylus Photo R220 is designed to meet the needs of those who want to obtain premium quality photos, up to A4, from the comfort of their own home.  Using six separate ink cartridges, it is a cost effective photo printing solution, you only need to replace the ink that you have used.  Additional features include a direct CD and DVD printing function and easy-to use photo software.

To personalise a CD or DVD, the Stylus Photo R220 comes complete with simple-to-use Epson Print CD software.  You can print your own designs directly onto compatible printable CD and DVD media, ensuring you can manage and identify your photo-CD’s, home music and movie collections.

Also included with the Stylus Photo R220 is Epson Creativity Suite, a software package that allows you to easily manage and manipulate all of your digital images. Using Epson Easy Photo Print you can select and edit your images to then print in your preferred format, for example, A4, 10x15cm or 2 photos per A4 page.

At the heart of the Stylus Photo R220 is Epson’s MicroPiezo™ technology delivering a resolution of up to 5760x1440 dpi, which, when coupled with Variable Size Droplet technology,  produces photos that are brighter, sharper and more vivid than those from the photo lab.
