HP DesignJet T730The HP T730 can print on a range of media.  It is aimed at the low to mid volume architectural, construction & design users so it’s perfect for mainly printing plans, layouts, technical drawings, presentation designs, etc, but you can easily print on the following media types:

WHAT GDS RECOMMENDS FOR YOUR PERFECT HP T730 PRINTS...

GDS Media Swatch BookWhether you need T730 CAD paper (uncoated basic plain white paper) for printing technical drawings and layouts, T730 Presentation paper (coated with a unique inkjet layer to give a higher quality print), T730 Heavyweight paper, or T730 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 T730 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 T730 cannot handle larger 3 inch core rolls.

Our T730 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 T730 PRINTER...?

HP DesignJet T730 36" (F9A29A).

The HP T730 A0 size (36") printer can take rolls up to 36" wide / 914mm and up to 50mt long (10cms diameter) in lightweight CAD paper and 30mt in heavier papers. 

The HP T730 printer model can also handle sheets - the cassette can be loaded with A3 or A4 paper to feed continuously or you can load A2 or A1 sheets individually. Here is an overview of the standard sizes of wide format paper rolls and sheets and the size of prints you can use them for. Sizing varies between traditional CAD sizing where true ISO sheet size is required from rolls, and graphics sizing which is almost always oversized. Where a roll accommodates 2 sizes you can print both by simply turning your print to landscape.

  • 297mm - this is available in only a few product ranges and is the exact width of the long side of A4 or the short side of A3
  • 420mm - this is available in only a few product ranges and is the exact width of the long side of A3 or the short side of A2
  • 594mm - this is available in more product ranges and is the exact width of the long side of A2 or the short side of A1
  • 610mm - this is readily available in nearly every product range - it is oversize so when printing A2 or A1 scale drawings you would have a small margin

  • 914mm - this is readily available in most product ranges and is oversize so when printing A0 or A1 scale drawings you would have a small margin
