My office owns a HP Design Jet T1530. What is the longest paper roll length that can be loaded in the HP Design Jet T1530? We use 150 foot length now and it runs out of paper too often. Karen

Asked by: Kingr
Hello Karen and thank you for your question! The HP DesignJet T1530 is compatible with paper rolls up to 300' in length. About twice the length you are currently using. Hope this helps and thank you for being an HP customer!
