Should I Use Sheets or a Roll?
Graytex plotter papers are available in sheets or rolls so you can select the option best suited for your application. Both sheets and rolls are ideal options for a variety of applications, but each have their own advantages. The paper's roll width makes it cost efficient when printing large quantities of engineering or architectural prints. The plotter paper roll length is expressed in feet and gives you an idea of how frequently you will need to replace the roll. The plotter paper roll is ideal for when there is a job that requires multiple prints without having to continuously reload the paper. While you need to cut the roll after each print, some printers have automatic cutters built in. Plotter paper sheets are ideal for smaller jobs in which you would not to reload the paper. Plotter paper sheets also eliminate the need to cut the paper between each print.
