Introduction
The StyleWriter 1200 is a
high-resolution ink-jet
printer. There are some
differences between the
StyleWriter 1200 and the
StyleWriter II.
Basics
Introduction - 2
Hardware Differences
•The two out-feed rollers at the front of the printer have
only one rubber roller each, vs. two on StyleWriter II.
•The sheet feeder has changed to be compatible with the new
paper feeding scheme that the vendor has implemented
across the product line.
•The plastic cover of the controller and feed rollers has been
changed to match the paper feeder.
•The wheel on the carriage was removed.
Basics
Introduction - 3
Software Differences
•Some simplifications have been made to the controller
board, and the ROM has been upgraded to incorporate the
additional print modes, auto-power on/off, and a new selftest page.
• Two additional print modes have been added to the
StyleWriter 1200: Fine and Smooth. Fine mode uses 360 dpi
resolution and Smooth uses a 720 dpi horizontal by 360 dpi
vertical resolution.
• The printhead is automatically primed prior to the
printing of the self-test page.
• The Watermark feature allows the user to specify an image
to appear in the background of each page being printed.
Basics
Introduction - 4
Paper Sizes
The Executive size has been added to the StyleWriter 1200.
The printer offers four paper sizes:
• Letter (8.5" x 11")
• Legal (8.5" x 14")
• A4 (210 mm x 297 mm)
• Executive (7.25 mm x 10.5 mm)
Basics
Introduction - 5
Envelope Sizes
The number 6 envelope size has been added to the
StyleWriter 1200. The printer offers two envelope sizes:
• Number 6 (6.5" x 3.625")
• Number 10 (9.5" x 4.125")
Basics
