08 How do I make my Imagewriter II print in color? (Miscellaneous Macintosh)

Applications such as SuperPaint 2.0 and MacWrite II that
support the original eight-color model for QuickDraw graphics only
need a color ribbon to print in color. The shareware GIFConverter
can open and print a variety of graphics file types in excellent
dithered color. Jeff Skaitsis's $1 shareware CheapColor can also
dither PixelPaint and PICT2 files on an ImageWriter II. See

If you have a Macintosh with a 68020 or better CPU, the
payware MacPalette II provides general purpose color printing
from any application that prints on a QuickDraw printer (e.g. NOT
Illustrator). MacPalette II is about $45 street. If you need
more information the publisher, Microspot, can be contacted
at (800) 622-7568. QuickDraw GX can also provide general purpose
color printing from any application that prints on a QuickDraw
printer (though with a much larger memory footprint).
