Paper That Can Damage the Printer:

Some paper and other media types can cause poor output quality, increased paper jams, or damage the printer.
Do not use the following:

  • Rough or porous paper
  • Inkjet paper
  • Non-laser glossy or coated paper
  • Paper that has been photocopied
  • Paper that has been folded or wrinkled
  • Paper with cutouts or perforations
  • Stapled paper
  • Envelopes with windows, metal clasps, side seams, or adhesives with release strips
  • Padded envelopes
  • Plastic media
  • transparencies

Paper Storage Guidelines:

Proper storage of paper and other media contributes to optimum print quality.

  • Store paper in dark, cool, relatively dry locations. Most paper is susceptible to damage from ultraviolet and visible light. Ultraviolet light, from the sun and fluorescent bulbs, is particularly damaging to paper.
  • Reduce the exposure of paper to strong lights for long periods of time.
  • Maintain constant temperatures and relative humidity.
  • Avoid storing paper in attics, kitchens, garages, or basements. These spaces are more likely to collect moisture.
  • Store paper flat, either on pallets, cartons, shelves, or in cabinets.
  • Avoid food or drinks in the area where paper is stored or handled.
  • Do not open sealed packages of paper until they are ready to load into the printer. Leave stored paper in the original packaging. The paper wrapper protects the paper from moisture loss or gain.
  • Some special media is packaged inside resealable plastic bags. Store the media inside the bag until it is ready to be used. Keep unused media in the bag and reseal it for protection.

Cardstock Guidelines:

The printer can print Cardstock up to 216 g/m² from any tray. For types and weights of supported Cardstock for 1-Sided printing, refer to Supported Paper Types and Weights above. For types and weights of supported Cardstock for 2-Sided printing, refer to Supported Paper Types and Weights for Automatic 2-Sided Printing above.

Follow the guidelines for printing on glossy cardstock:

  • Do not open sealed packages of glossy cardstock until it is ready to be loaded in the printer.
  • Leave glossy cardstock in the original wrapper, and leave the packages in the shipping carton until ready to use.
  • Remove all other paper from the tray before loading glossy cardstock.
  • Load only the amount of glossy cardstock that you are planning to use. Do not leave glossy cardstock in the tray when printing has finished. Replace unused cardstock in the original wrapper and seal.
  • Rotate stock frequently. Long periods of storage in extreme conditions can cause glossy cardstock to curl and jam in the printer.
  • In the print driver software, select the desired glossy cardstock type or select the tray loaded with the desired paper.
