From your web browser (probably Safari right now) Look at the top, you should see an Apple icon, the name of the web browser (Safari, Firefox, etc.) and then File.

Click on File

Now click on Print

This will open up the Printer options where you'll find the color options, can you make sure it is set to print in color and not Black and White please Keith.

Let me know the results please

Thank you
