  1. Keep it powered up

  When it comes to an ink jet large format plotter, it is important to remember that there is a lot of liquid located throughout the machine. Whether you have a dye sublimation ink or pigment printer, ink is present in the ink tanks, plumbing system, and print head. The worst condition for this ink to be in is a static state. The best practice is to keep the plotter powered on so that it will monitor itself and occasionally purge a small amount of ink through the print head to keep the nozzles fresh.

  2. Print the color documents at least once a week

  The majority of people use their printer for black and white prints 90%-100% of the time, but it has been a long time since a wide format plotter manufacturer designed an exclusively monochrome printer. If you want to keep your plotter work well, you’d better print some color documents at least once a week to keep the color lines and nozzles clear.
