    NOTE: To avoid jams and misfeeds, do not remove paper from its packaging until you are ready to use it.

  7. Load the paper in the tray.
    • If the printer has a Duplex Unit:

      Insert the paper long-edge feed, with the print side face-down and the top edge to the right. Load hole punched paper with the holes facing the front of the tray.

      Insert large-format paper short-edge feed, with the print side face-down and the top edge facing the front of the tray. Load hole punched paper with the holes to the left.

    • If the printer does not have a Duplex Unit:

      Insert the paper long-edge feed, with the print side face up and the top edge to the right. Load hole punched paper with the holes toward the back.

      Insert large-format paper short-edge feed, with the print side face up and the top edge facing the back of the tray. Load hole punched paper with the holes to the left.

      NOTE: Do not load paper above the maximum fill line. Overfilling the tray can cause the printer to jam.

      do not fill past the Max Fill line

      NOTE: For faster print speeds, load paper long-edge feed.

  8. If previously removed, re-insert the tray into the printer.
