Are you looking for plotter paper for your wide format printer?

Posted by Katrina 23/02/2017 0 Comment(s) Prizma,HP,Canon,

Not sure which printer paper is compatible for use with your plotter?


Firstly, what is plotter paper? The term ‘plotter paper’ has been used in the design industry since the first pen plotter was introduced to the market. Pen plotters created line and text by moving a pen across the paper or film and provided a much faster means of producing drawings than the traditional drafting method of drawing by hand onto tracing paper or drafting film. Pen plotters are now a thing of the past, having been replaced by large format inkjet printers and LED (light-emitting diode) toner based printers. The first Hewlett Packard (HP) DesignJet range of inkjet printers were introduced in the early 1990's and HP remains the market leader in inkjet print technology today.The terms ‘plotter’ and ‘plotter paper’ also remain while print technology advances. So paper for your inkjet printer may still be referred to as plotter paper.


Inkjet print technology has been on an exciting journey since the first inkjet printers hit the design industry.  We can now produce solid colour prints with brilliant, photo realistic results as well as line monochrome and colour prints, all with the same printer.  Choosing the right printer paper for your output requirement can be hard to navigate, with so much choice in paper weights, coatings and finishes. The range of vinyls, banner films, canvas and fine art paper, wallpaper and fabric media now available also needs to be understood in order to select the best option to give you the best results.
