HP Bolsters Large-format Portfolio to Create New Opportunities for Copy Shops and Design Professionals

HP today announced an expanded large-format portfolio to help low-volume print service providers (PSPs) and 
technical design professionals lower costs, increase productivity and win new business with easy-to-manage, in-
house large-format printing capabilities.

The new solutions are designed for entry-level large-format commercial printing applications as well as architecture, 
engineering and construction (AEC), geographic information systems (GIS), and mechanical computer-aided 
design (MCAD) technical applications. 

Highlights include:

—     The HP Designjet Z5200 PostScript® Printer, a simple and productive entry-level large-format system that 
offers easy, affordable and high-quality printing in-house;

—     A 24-inch model of the HP Designjet T770 Printer series that includes an easy-to-access top-loading roll, 
large memory for processing files and fast speeds; and

—     The HP Designjet 111 Printer, HP’s most affordable and compact large-format printer, which delivers high-
quality, cost-effective prints for entry-level technical professionals.

“HP recognizes that customers need to expand their printing capabilities and turn around projects quickly to give 
them a competitive advantage and help capture new business opportunities,” said Santiago Morera, vice 
president and general manager, Designjet Solutions, HP. “The additions to our large-format portfolio address those 
needs by offering lower costs, higher productivity and easier operation – combined with our hallmark quality and 

HP Designjet Z5200 PostScript® Printer simplifies large-format printing 

Designed specifically for copy shops and quick printers interested in entering the large-format market, the HP 
Designjet Z5200 PostScript® Printer offers a simple, affordable device for a broad range of high-quality 
applications, including posters, point-of-purchase (POP) displays, maps, light boxes and canvas prints. To 
streamline the printing process, advanced HP technology eliminates and automates many of the steps involved 
with traditional large-format printing. In addition, the new HP Instant Printing Pro solution simplifies and 
accelerates the entire printing workflow with fast, easy file preparation and automatic nesting, preview, orientation 
and crop marks. 

The HP Designjet Z5200 PostScript® Printer also includes an embedded spectrophotometer for automatic 
calibration and media profiling to help those without extensive color management experience ensure color 
accuracy and consistency across projects.  Additionally, HP Universal Bond Paper and HP Bright White Inkjet 
Paper with ColorPRO Technology provide noticeably superior print quality compared to competitive untreated 
bond papers for high-quality output at a much lower cost.

New entry-level printing solutions for technical professionals

From winning bids and developing plans to interacting with peers and clients, digital information sharing is 
essential to how AEC/GIS/CAD professionals operate. HP’s large-format printers and multiformat devices now 
make it easy to turn digital designs into documents and then digitize them back into the design-and-make 
process, helping shorten project cycles. 

The new HP printers offer smaller footprints and intuitive ease-of-use features to allow small technical teams, 
individual professionals and students to benefit from in-house large-format printing.

Adding to the proven HP Designjet T770 Printer series, which includes a 44-inch device, the new 24-inch model 
allows small teams to increase productivity with a printer that is fast, reliable and easy to use. The printer’s top-
loading roll makes it simple to load and swap media, and its expandable memory allows the printer to handle 
bigger jobs as business grows. It also features built-in networking for easy sharing and the ability to print without 
opening applications.

Available in a tray or roll-fed option, the HP Designjet 111 Printer is an ideal entry-level printer for technical CAD 
applications, large-format posters and presentations. Designed for AEC students and professionals, construction 
offices, universities and technical instruction environments, the printer is affordable at any budget with the ability 
to create posters or presentations for less than $1.(1) As the smallest HP large-format printer available,(2) 
measuring only 1 meter (3.3 feet) wide, it also fits easily into small offices.
