Poster Printing

How to print a poster on the Agronomy and Soils Departmental HP Designjet Z3100 Photo Plotter.


Whether you have a high quality art print or a highly technical poster for a technical conference preparing the document in concert with the printer is critical.  Agronomy and Soils Department has purchased a high end photo printer that is capable of producing professional grade products.  It will not be the printer’s fault if your poster is ugly.

This web site will step you through the four phases of printing a poster on the HP Z3100.  Phase I is done only once for any computer that has access to the Z3100.  The other three phases will be performed for each poster.
