Print on long paper using HP m12W (520mm)

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows XP

I am attempting to print a 114mm x 520mm (number plate) using a HP m12W printer. Presently, when I attempt to set the print limits to 520mm the driver/interface limits the length to something like 365mm. 

 

Is there a way to force a m12W printer to print on 520m long paper?

 

Thank you

Hi,

This cannot be done with the printer, 356mm is the maximum length supported by the printer.

 

You may find its Specifications below, see the Media sizes, custom (metric) section:

Thank you ShlomiL,

 

It can be done! We were using some software (vps-plates) which printed to this printer with length 520mm. Unfortunately the company has disappeared and the license has expired. Hence our quest to print (from corel draw).

 

I'd be grateful for any ideas about how vps-plates might have done it.

 

Thanks
