HP DesignJet PostScript/PDF Upgrade Kit
The HP DesignJet PostScript/PDF Upgrade Kit allows you to change your Non-PostScript printer into a PostScript printer. HP pay Adobe a licence fee for this hence why a PostScript printer is more expensive – however because it speaks the same language as Adobe’s various software it ensures that the printer accurately replicates Adobe-created files when printing. You would purchase this upgrade kit ordinarily if you are finding that you are printing more complicated drawings and start to see odd missing lines for more complex files. You’d also purchase this kit if you want to print multiple files at the same time e.g. select 10 files and tell the printer to print them. With a Non-PostScript printer you have to go into each file individually and tell them to print. It is always cheaper to purchase a PostScript printer at the outset than converting a Non-PostScript printer to PostScript.
