Guidelines for Printing Labels

  • Use labels designed for laser printing.
  • Do not use vinyl labels.
  • Do not feed a sheet of labels through the printer more than once.
  • Do not use dry gum labels.
  • Print only on one side of the sheet of labels. Use full-sheet labels only.
  • Store unused labels flat in their original packaging. Leave the label sheets inside the original packaging until ready to use. Return any unused label sheets to the original packaging and reseal it.
  • Do not store labels in extremely dry or humid conditions or extremely hot or cold conditions. Storing labels in extreme conditions can cause print-quality problems or cause labels to jam in the printer.
  • Rotate stock frequently. Long periods of storage in extreme conditions can cause labels to curl and jam in the printer.
  • In the print driver software, select Label as the paper type.
  • Before loading labels, remove all other paper from the tray.
Warning: Do not use any sheet where labels are missing, curled, or pulled away from the backing sheet. It could damage the printer.  Do not use any sheet where labels are missing, curled, or pulled away from the backing sheet. It could damage the printer.

Guidelines for Printing Envelopes

  • Use only paper envelopes.
  • Do not use envelopes with windows or metal clasps.
  • Print quality depends on the quality and construction of the envelopes. If you do not get the desired results, try another envelope brand.
  • Maintain constant temperatures and relative humidity.
  • Store unused envelopes in their packaging to avoid excess moisture and dryness which can affect print quality and cause wrinkling. Excessive moisture can cause the envelopes to seal before or during printing.
  • Remove air bubbles from the envelopes before loading them into the tray by setting a heavy book on top of the envelopes.
  • In the print driver software, select Envelope as the paper type.
  • Do not use padded envelopes. Use envelopes that lie flat on a surface.
  • Do not use envelopes with heat-activated glue.
  • Do not use envelopes with press-and-seal flaps.
