Info you should know before you print...

  • The HP Designjet Z5400 prints from media fed from a roll. Various types of paper are available, with currently stocked widths of 36" and 42". The final size of your printout is somewhat dynamic. Although one dimension is controlled by the width of the paper installed, the other dimension is defined during the print setup process.

  • There is a recharge to cover supply costs. The current recharge rate is $35 per 4 feet of poster (1'-4' = $35; >4'-8' = $70, etc). The charge is the same whether using 36" or 42" rolls. Accepted accounts for recharge must be 19900 or donor accounts. Exceptions for other accounts must be approved by your account manager.
