How To Print Banners on Sharp Printer (11 x 40 inches)

Prerequisites:

  1. Have your banner paper prepared. We order 11 x 300ft rolls of 20lb bond from Archive Supplies. You’ll need to cut the paper to 40 inches long since the machine cannot cut it off of the roll.
  2. Have a current generation Sharp printer. If you are unsure if your model will print banners, contact us.
  3. Execute simulation 26-50 to enable “long┬ásize print” by changing the 0 to a 1. Your Sharp servicing dealer can step you through this process. If you’re in Houston, we’d be happy to help.
