How do I set up my product for the fastest printing?

  • If you're printing from your computer, make sure your system meets the requirements. If you're printing a high-resolution image, you need more than the minimum requirements listed. You may also need to:
    • Clear space on your hard drive or run a defragmentation utility.
    • Close programs that you're not using.
    • Increase your system's memory.
    For the fastest printing, try these tips:
    • Choose Black/Grayscale in your printer settings if your document doesn't include color.
    • For Windows, choose Draft for the Quality Option.
    • For Macintosh, set the Quality/Speed slider to Speed.
    • If the Epson Stylus is connected to a USB hub, disconnect unused USB devices.
    If you want to make a copy quickly using the buttons on your Epson Stylus and you don't need high quality, you can print a “draft” copy. See Copy Draft Documents.
