HP Recommended
T1530

I need some expert opinion on 3 inch core paper roll and 2 inch core paper roll. Is there any technical difference between these papers? Some people said 2 inch core paper roll is better then the other while some said in vice versa. Hence please enlight me and tell me is there any significant difference between this two different core paper?

If you use paper from the same manufacturer there is no difference, the paper is the same.

If you have a machine that uses a 2 in spindle you'll be able to use a roll that holds more paper than the same machine with 3 inch adapters because there can be more feet of paper wrapped around a smaller core.

If you use 3 inch Core paper then the paper wrapped around the core at the end of the Roll won't be quite as curled as the paper wrapped around the 2 in core when you get to the end of the Roll.

The paper at the End of the Roll On A 2-inch roll might not lay as flat as the paper at the end of a 3in roll. When using a 3-inch core roll you would have to change rolls more often since the 3-inch core roll has to fit in the same space as the 2 inch core roll.
