A media support, comprising a sheet of elongated suction cups and circular suction cups, wherein each elongated suction cup has a length in a first direction, a width in a second direction orthogonal to the first direction, and a depth in a third direction orthogonal to the first and second directions, the length being greater than the width, and wherein each suction cup:
is recessed into the sheet in the third direction along a surface of the sheet such that at least some of the suction cup is below the surface of the sheet in the third direction; and
has a port through which air may be evacuated from the suction cup with the port of each suction cup separate from the port of any other suction cup.
