HP Celebrates 25 Years of Reliable DesignJet Printers with the My HP DesignJet and Me Contest

In 1991, HP launched the first inkjet large-format HP DesignJet printer, replacing pen plotters and forever reinventing how architects and engineers design and print large-format technical drawings. The original monochrome model offered early users easier, faster and more affordable printing, and the later color printing models opened new application opportunities, such as GIS maps, and provided faster speeds and higher-quality images. With more than 3 million HP DesignJet printers installed worldwide today, HP is committed to innovation and maintaining open collaboration with its customers to not only create solutions for them, but with them. HP DesignJet printers are based on deep R&D know-how that’s been cultivated over decades and refreshed every day with every product, delivering easier, faster and better solutions with each new generation.

“This year HP DesignJet celebrates 25 years and continues to set the benchmark for reliable printing solutions, fast speeds and high-quality output,” said Thomas Valjak, EMEA Head of Large Format Printing, GSB HP Inc. “We are commited to ongoing reinvention to meet the evolving needs of architects, engineers, graphics production, GIS and construction professionals and helping customers work where and how they want to. In 1991, HP DesignJet was born in Barcelona and more than two decades later our 60 per cent market share clearly shows the true partnership we have been building during those years with our customers.”
