Innovative Ink System
The first desktop photo printer to include seven pigment inks, the EPSON Stylus Photo 2200 offers phenomenal quality and detail. EPSON UltraChrome Inks use a special technology that delivers the highest color gamut of any ink jet pigment ink. And, this innovative system provides convenient individual ink cartridges for more efficient ink use. Durable and fade-resistant, these brilliant inks deliver archival results for long-lasting portraits, snapshots and more.

Interchangeable Photo and Matte Black Inks
The EPSON Stylus Photo 2200 lets you optimize image quality based on the type of ink and paper you use. Photo Black ink can be used with glossy paper for the richest, deepest blacks possible. The optional Matte Black ink creates optimum results when printing on matte paper.
