GDS Media Swatch Book

Whether you need T530 CAD paper (uncoated basic plain white paper) for printing technical drawings and layouts, T530 Presentation paper (coated with a unique inkjet layer to give a higher quality print), T530 Heavyweight paper, or T530 Photo Paper to make sure your displays look tip top, we can pinpoint the roll or sheet pack for you. We have put together a selection of our most popular rolls and sheets for you to choose from, with total peace of mind for excellent print results.  These are all from our GDS range and provide excellent quality and low cost.  If you wish to use HP branded papers you certainly can, but we think you'd prefer to spend less and achieve consistent, high quality results!

The rolls we suggest for the HP T530 printer are all supplied on a 2 inch core (50mm) (this is the tube in the centre of the paper roll which slides onto the printer spindle). Cores come in two industry standard sizes 50mm (2") and 76mm (3").  Note the T530 printers cannot handle larger 3 inch core rolls.

Our T530 paper range should give you a paper product that is suitable for any of your print jobs.  Our most popular GDS rolls are:

 

WHAT PAPER SIZES FIT THE HP T530 PRINTERS...?
