Printing Speed Versus Color

Printing Speed Versus Color

The BJC-250 Printer Driver for Windows can interpret and translate the full spectrum of 
colors, up to 16.7 million colors. When printing in color, there is a significant increase in 
the amount of information that the driver has to interpret and translate. When printing 
with black ink only, the driver has only one color to interpret. By decreasing the amount of 
colors that the printer driver has to interpret, you can significantly decrease the time 
needed to translate the information. This will speed up the overall printing process.
