With our newest line of business printers, customers can find the speed, quality, total cost of ownership and reliability to help them do business better.
HP PageWide XL Media is designed to save time and money
The HP PageWide XL printers do the job of two printers in one single device, providing monochrome and color prints at breakthrough speeds of up to 60 percent faster than the fastest LED printer. This eliminates the need for collating print jobs from two separate printers, saving time and money and improving workflows. This innovation is a game-changer for the reprographics industry. HP large format printing materials are optimized to work with this new technology and provide quick-dry, smear-resistant prints.
The new media in the HP PageWide XL Printer portfolio includes recyclable* and FSC®-certified papers* including HP Universal Bond Paper, and HP 20 lb and 24 lb Bond Paper for technical applications, HP Matte Polypropylene to produce roll-up banners, and HP Production Matte, Gloss, and Satin Poster Papers for point-of-sale applications and poster production.
The chemical makeup of HP printing materials and HP PageWide XL pigment inks, together with the carefully engineered interaction between the two, make exceptional results possible. The bond papers are designed with HP ColorPRO Technology which is incorporated into the paper-making process, delivering visibly enhanced print quality, providing sharp lines, and crisper text and graphics when used with HP pigment inks while using 13.5% less ink. Ink savings is averaged between black and white and color. HP PageWide printers, ink and media – the total cost-effective solution.

HP holds an advantage in Architectural/Engineering/Construction (AEC) drawings as it relates to durability especially in hot environments. When AEC workflows moved from diazo or ammonia-based printing into the digital realm, the overwhelming majority of the deliverables were dry toner based. Toner is a powder that usually contains carbon black and any number of polymers which are melted and fused onto the page either by heat and pressure or sometimes by radiant fusing alone. In either case, the pages were subject to a problem called “blocking”, whereby the toner actually melts again or refuses from the face of one page to the back of the page above it. Blocking can occur when pages are exposed to heat and/or pressure. When the pages are separated the fused toner is pulled away from the page and place it was supposed to be and stuck to the back of another page. This problem can happen again and again, rendering the pages useless as more data gets removed or partly reapplied on another place on the document. Sometimes blocking can occur without high heat. Oftentimes AEC prints are stored in flat files with many pages stacked up on top of each other. Just the weight and pressure of the stack can cause blocking. The reason this is so financially challenging is that oftentimes the pages in question had to be maintained for historical reference. If pages were dated and stamped but then rendered useless because of the poor archive ability, it creates a number of problems including legal ones. The AEC environment can be a very litigious place!
For years customers dealt with this problem by rerunning jobs and dealing with the procedural problems because there was no better alternative. Enter HP PageWide XL printers. The durable pigmented inks used do not suffer from blocking issues at all. The inks are far more smudge resistant, UV resistant and water-fast than dye-based inks. For years thermal ink jet technology was not the solution. Yes, the output quality was superior, but the technology was too slow and too expensive to become the standard. With HP PageWide XL printers, both of these challenges have now been completely overcome with the added benefit of archival durability and flexibility. So, while you would never leave a pet in a hot car while you ducked into the grocery store, your roll of AEC plans will be just fine.
