What type of paper should I use?
We recommend the following guidelines when selecting paper and other media for use in these printers:
All paper should be stored flat and away from moisture, direct sunlight and heat sources
Use envelopes designed for use in laser type printers
The use of heavily laid or textured paper will seriously impact the drum life and give poor print quality. Print quality can be improved by changing the media setting to "Ultra Heavy". However this will reduce the output speed and also prevent the use of the duplex option.
Do not use smooth, shiny or glossy paper
Do not use heavily embossed headed paper, very rough paperor paper that has a large grain difference between the two sides
Do not use paper with perforations, cut-outs or ragged edges
Do not use envelopes with windows or metal clasps
Do not use envelopes with self sealing flaps
Do not use damp, damaged or curled paper and envelopes
Do not use carbon paper, NCR paper, photosensitive paper, pressure sensitive paper or thermal transfer paper
Media must be designed for use in colour laser printers and photocopiers
Must be able to withstand 200 degrees centigrade for 0.1 seconds
Labels should cover the entire carrier sheet
Carrier sheet or adhesive must not be exposed to any part of the printer
