Question about Epson Stylus Pro 11880 InkJet Plotter Printer

Open Question

Canvas printing too short.

When printing a long image (eg 36" x 48"), dimension that runs with the roll ends up being short (in the example about 1/4"). The width (across the printer) is fine, the height is experiencing the shrinkage.

SOURCE: setting correct paper size

By trial and error I found that the paper is specified with the width then the lenght of the paper.

Even though the graphics show you that you are printing the image either vertical or horizontal I still wanted to know when I set up my non standard paper size of 24x 6 which was first the width of the paper or the length. I didn't see that in the manual. All our problems should be so small.

Thanx for the reply though

SOURCE: My epson r1900 won't load a roll of canvas through

After talking for many minutes (thank you Skype!) to the Epson service guy I am now able to load a roll of canvas. The trick is that the paper must be firmly against the right side (looking from the front) of the feed slot and must have some slack going in. The only way I can accurately meet these conflicting requirements is to put the roll in the roll guides on the table behind the printer and feed the paper into the slot holding it on both edges. When the paper is blocked be sure to pay attention to the right side and have it as firmly as possible agianst the right side of the slot and push enough into the slot so that it bowes up a bit. You will feel the printer gently grab the paper. Immediately let go, don't fight it.
I leave the roll on the table, but after this point you probably can mount it on the back if you need to.
In case it is not clear: after printing tapping the roll botton will mark the cut line and feed the paper out. After cutting tapping the button again will roll it back for the next print. Holding the roll button will eject the papaer out the back.

Image prints at the edge of the canvas


you should check the paper size loaded at the driver open devices and printers- choose HP DJ5500 driver - right click and open Printer properties-click the paper/sizes tab at the top-check that the paper size is set to ROLL- then set roll size ( 24"=A1--36"=A0---42"=A0/2A0)
now when you try to print make sure that the printing application ( EG paintshopPro) has the correct Page size (under document Properties)
and that your not strectching to fit or using the overprint commands within your printing application. the plotter should never be allowed to overprint as this model has no ay of clearing the excess ink that would be left on the platten

I have an Epson R1800 and when I load Roll 13X19 matte media and try to print I either get a "jammed media" message or the printer trys to print without feeding the media.


I had a similar problem trying to print epson pro canvas. I finally learned the "trick". First I generally cut an appropriately sized pice of canvas from the roll. Then I attach a HEADER. This is dome by cutting a piece of 13" wide photo paper in a three inch length (so you have a piece 13" x 3") . Draw a line at 1.5 inches and place some sort of adhesive (I use a double sided tape gun) on one side of the line. Line up the canvas/paper with the line and make sure it sticks to the header.

Now you should be able to manually feed the header/paper into the printer - once the header passes the correcct point the printer will "grab" it a position it correctly for printing.

Hope this helps

Enlarge and print pictures with a lexmark 6675


You can expand your image to multiple pages, so you can stretch an 8.5x11 image to close to 18x24, by selecting Poster (in the copy menu), and 2x2.

Printing Borderless at 42" width?


Set the roll size to 44 inch, set your left margin to 0 (in your preprint software), experiment. With margins set at 0, using Onyx Productionhouse 7.3, the 9800 will print approx 41.8 inch image on 42 inch roll 43.8 on 44, etc. This is considered borderless printing. No matter what size roll you tell the printer it has in it, it will print to about an eighth to a sixteenth of an inch short of the paper's actual edge (that's the left side of the roll paper coming out of the printer - the right side of the print). If you load, for example, a 36 inch roll, tell the printer its a 44 inch roll, and send a 40 inch wide print, with a left margin of 0 it will print around 35.8 inches, cutting off the image just before it would overprint and get ink on the machine (1/8 - 1/16inch before the edge of your 36 inch stock). It is possible that these tollerances will be different depending on what software you send your images with... hope this helps!
