Color StyleWriter 2500

Introduced: February 1, 1996
Terminated: 1997


The Color StyleWriter 2500 was an ink-jet printer that used the QuickDraw interpreter.  Communication options included a serial port, and optional LocalTalk or Ethernet.  It could print five black and white pages a minute or one color page in three minutes with a resolution of 720 x 360.


Another color ink jet printer in Apple’s StyleWriter line, the StyleWriter 2500 was modeled after a Canon Bubblejet printer.  It looked similar to the StyleWriter 2400, but boasted faster printing.

The LocalTalk or Ethernet options were available as networking upgrades.  Users could also purchase a PhotoGrade kit that used special inks, cartridge and paper.
