For CAD monochrome and line colour technical drawings, an uncoated paper is all you need to produce high quality prints with the HP T520 plotter. Our PCR90 Uncoated Inkjet Plotter Paper is our most popular paper, being a heavier 90gsm weight and a high performing and affordable option. Importantly, this is a consistent paper for consistently high quality results that can cope with light solid fill as well as line colour output. To make your printing run as smoothly as possible, we supply this paper in a 594mm width roll to enable you to print to standard A1 size, meaning no need to trim, but of course the same paper is also available in a width of 610mm.

However, this  HP T520 printer will also allow you to create full colour presentations and posters. For high quality results a coated paper is a must and for this purpose we recommend our CJSC100 Coated Inkjet Plotter Paper 100gsm or our PHR120 Coated Inkjet Plotter Paper 120gsm. Both of these papers have a smooth, white surface that can cope with the heavier ink loads required for presentations with vivid colours and superb contrast, all with the fast drying time necessary for pristine results.

But that's not all this printer can achieve. Upgrade your paper to our Matt Coated Inkjet Poster Paper 165gsm and 180gsm or Satin Photo Paper in, for example, a 190gsm weight and the HP T520 will allow you to produce your own in house posters within the spectrum of the 4 colour gamut. Both our Coated Poster Papers and Satin Photo Paper are ideal for maps, photos and charts, with a microporous coating that enables the ink to dry instantly with fantastic colour contrast for sharp, brilliant images.

These are not the only plotter paper options available that are suitable for use with the HP T520 printer. Any paper roll on a 2 inch core with a weight of up to 280gsm, or cut sheets up to 220gsm, can be used with this printer. For an easy to find list of papers suitable for use with the HP T520 click here or call us on 01296 393700 and let us know what you are looking or and we will be happy to advise. 

We always recommend using HP original inks and printheads for consistently high quality and reliable performance. For an easy to find list of ink cartridges suitable for use with the HP T520 click here
