The Epson JX-80 Impact Printer has the capability of printing in seven colors. It can print in multiple fonts which can be software programmable or through the SelecType feature. It has a high level of graphic resolution as well as the ability to print in any of eight international character sets. The color printing is controlled by including a special control code (ESCAPE R) followed by the code for the specific color. The ribbon for the JX-80 contains four colors: black, magenta, yellow, and cyan. These colors are mixed with multiple passes to produce the other three colors: green, orange, and violet.
