Helpful list of what paper, media, textiles, even metal foil you can print on with a large format inkjet printer Print E-mail

Specially with Hewlett-Packard large format DesignJet printers of the 2000cp and 3000cp series. This information is available in a hot-linked format on HP's home page (many years ago).

ATP Color, Digifab textile printers evaluated by FLAAR
There are many companies that make or distribute textile printers. One that we know for many many years is DigiFab. Another textile company that has let us do evaluations on their printers is ATPColor. We have evaluated their printers and here are the results.

It took about ten minutes to find this information (DesignJet/ complimentary media program) so to save you the same frustration we figured it would be easier if we just summarize the information here. The advantage of getting it directly from HP's web site is that most entries are hot-linked to additional details about the paper. Good luck finding the key page. Even though we had read the page before, even though we knew where it was, we had to burrow down almost seven layers to reach it. We would provide a hot-link but the data does not appear on that page. You have to be in the HP site itself and do a search to trigger the appearance of the data itself.

For the HP DesignJet 5000 series (that replaced the 2000, 2500, 2800, 3000, 3500, 3800), completely new inkjet media has been developed, especially for the UV pigmented inks on these new printers. Realize that between 2003-2005 that HP used the tag “UV” to mean pigmented inks. Today (since 2004 actually) this designation is unsuitable totally, because since 2004 and before, “UV” means UV-cured flatbed printers. The Designjet 5000 and 3000 series are definitely not UV-cured. So today their ink is simply named “pigmented ink.” It is water-based.

Today in 2009 the current models of HP Designjet water-based printers are the Z2100, Z3100, Z3200, and Z6100. I have not seen much attention by HP for textile printing with these models. So today, if you want to seriously print textiles, look at the Yuhan-Kimberly MC3 Premium or DigiFab StampaJet, among others.

Here is a list that is for much older HP printers, 3000, 3500, 3800, 5000, 5500 series (since thousands of these printers are still in use).
