Plotter paper to fit the HP DesignJet T520 A0 36" and A1 24" Inkjet Printer

Posted by Katrina 19/03/2019 0 Comment(s) Prizma,HP,

Listening to the printing requirements of our customers is an essential part of our philosophy here at Prizma Graphics. Only when we have fully understood the specific details of your design and print expectations, covering such aspects as output quantity and colour, on site drawings or presentations, can we formulate the ideal package for both printer and paper.


And for a printer that covers all of the above aspects in addition to a print capacity of up to 70 A1 technical CAD prints per hour, there could be no better solution than the HP DesignJet T520 A1 and A0 inkjet printer.


The outstanding features of this printer, discussed in more detail here, make this an ideal office-ready and easy-to-use solution for wide format printing for those working in interior or landscape design, engineering or architectural practice, looking for versatility in print output. With a print resolution of up to 2400 dpi using four colour inks – cyan, magenta, yellow and black – and a single roll feed for paper weights from 60gsm to 280gsm, this printer offers a formidable solution for producing CAD technical drawings, maps, presentation prints and in-house posters.


With this in mind, it is always worthwhile to review the compatible papers that will enable you to achieve the highest results using this printer. Our easy-to-follow list of our recommended media makes this process as simple as possible and allows you to select and order the perfect paper to meet your requirements. 


For monochrome and line colour prints


For monochrome and line colour prints and an excellent value for money solution, our 80gsm uncoated plotter paper is supplied in longer 50m length rolls and is ideal for CAD technical prints. Our bright white, smooth 90gsm paper is slightly heavier and therefore offers more durability for prints that need to withstand a bit more handling.


For presentation prints and maps


A coated plotter paper is imperative for creating prints with vivid colours and sharp line definition as the coating will allow the ink to sit on the surface of the paper without being absorbed. A coating that dries fast is also important for heavier inkloads to enable you to achieve pristine prints. Our premium quality coated plotter papers in 100gsm and 120gsm weights with their smooth, beautifully finished coatings are perfect for high quality, full colour presentation prints.


For tracing and overlays


Our 112gsm inkjet tracing paper, with its excellent transparency and lay flat qualities, is the ideal solution for final CAD drawings and overlays. This high quality tracing paper also possesses good archiving qualities to maintain your inkjet prints in good condition, being a chlorine free paper made from sustainable spruce with 20% recycled fibres.


For maps, posters, full colour presentations and photographic quality prints


The capacity of this printer for the production of not only technical CAD prints but also maps, full colour presentations, posters and photographic quality prints, within the limitations of the four colour inks, widens the options for specially formulated coated inkjet papers.


Our Water Resistant Inkjet Paper in a 140gsm weight is a versatile choice for short term outdoor prints, including maps and plans that will be exposed to the elements. This paper is able to withstand high humidity and moisture, even a British rain shower will not cause the ink to smudge or the paper to disintegrate. The smooth, matt coated finish is also resistant to cracking providing high quality prints with excellent definition.


Our heavyweight Matt Coated Inkjet Poster Paper 165gsm is another great value and highly versatile paper, offering you a bright white, smooth coated surface that will accept high ink loads for full colour posters and colour presentations without the cost of photo grade papers. The non-reflective matt coating creates images with excellent line definition and low show through on the reverse, ensuring stunning prints that are guaranteed to stay flat.


For a choice of more durable, heavier weight papers consider our premium quality 180gsm paper, an economical but high quality presentation paper ideal for colour presentations, maps, display work and indoor signs with exceptionally dense blacks and vibrant colours. This paper is also available in a 230gsm weight as a durable, double weight coated plotter paper for longer lasting display prints.


For photographic quality prints with a non-reflective matt finish, our premium quality 170gsm Photo Realistic Inkjet Paper has a stabilised ‘no curl’ reverse side and no cockling with high ink loads. If a luxurious satin finish is preferred, our 200gsm Photo Satin Instant Dry Inkjet Paper has a water and smudge resistant, microporous coating for superb quality full colour graphics that will dry instantly for immediate handling.


For fine art prints


The capacity of the HP T520 to accept paper weights of up to 280gsm allows for such a variety of applications. Our 230gsm Canvas Textured Paper is ideal for producing not only fine art prints, but lends itself also to photographic prints and portraits, greetings cards and postcards, with a structure similar to traditional canvas. Available in a 610mm roll and 30m length, this high quality fine art paper is perfectly suited for high volume printing without the cost of inkjet canvas.
