You might not realise that with the HP T120 and HP T520 printer models you can load a roll that is narrower than the printer width, so for instance, the T120 can take rolls from 297mm right up to the maximum 610mm meaning you can print A4, A3, A2 and A1 on a variety of rolls. You would simply have a gap on the paper spindle when you load a smaller roll.
When choosing paper rolls for the T120 and T520 models you can only use rolls with a 2 inch core (the core is the cardboard tube inside the paper roll). Some rolls come on a 3 inch core and these will not fit.
Diameter is important too – the maximum diameter we have found to fit well is 10-11cms.
You do not have to use HP paper although the manufacturer would love you to do so. Most paper we stock comes from the same mills in Europe and is converted and badged once it is packed. The GDS range is a tried and tested range we have put together with price and quality in mind.
And finally, paper weight. The T120 and T520 take paper up to a maximum weight of 280gsm so only rolls 80gsm to 280gsm will feed through the print path.
So here is a handy list of the most popular rolls that fit these machines. It is not an exhaustive list and there are literally thousands of rolls that will fit, but this gives you an option for most print types you might be producing.
