Epson America Inc. is adding two new all-purpose printers to its inkjet lineup. Replacing the EPSON Stylus C64 and C84, the EPSON Stylus C66 and C86 produce text, documents and borderless photographs, and are available for estimated street prices of $69 and $99, respectively.

Both printers feature Epson's exclusive DURABrite inks, delivering fade-resistant, water-resistant and smudge-resistant results. The EPSON Stylus C66 and C86 offer up to 5760 x 1440 optimized dpi with variable sized droplets, as well as a convenient and cost-effective individual ink cartridge system with true black printing on glossy media for more realistic and sharper images.

New with the EPSON Stylus C66 and C86, customers will receive a photo kit for easy and convenient photo printing and crafting. 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.

The EPSON Stylus C86 offers borderless printing for frame-ready prints in several popular sizes, including 4" x 6," 8" x 10" and letter-sized prints. 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 is said to provide 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.
