Print Media Guidelines
Print media refers to paper, labels, envelopes, and coated paper among others.
Your printer provides high-quality printing on a variety of print media. Selecting
the appropriate print media for your printer helps avoid printing troubles. This
section describes selecting print media, caring for print media, and loading the
print media in the standard 250-sheet tray.
Paper
For the best print quality in color, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb) xerographic, grain long
paper. For the best print quality in black and white, use 90 g/m2 (24 lb)
xerographic, grain long paper. It is recommended that you try a sample first
before buying large quantities of any print media.
When loading paper, identify the recommended print side on the paper package,
and load the paper accordingly. See "Loading Print Media in the Standard 250Sheet Tray and the Optional 250-Sheet Feeder" and "Loading Print Media in the
SSF" for detailed loading instructions.
Paper Characteristics
The following paper characteristics affect print quality and reliability. It is
recommended that you follow these guidelines when evaluating new paper
stock.
Weight
The tray automatically feeds paper weights from 60 g/m2 to 216 g/m2 (16 lb to
80 lb bond) grain long. The single sheet feeder automatically feeds paper
weights from 60 g/m2 to 216 g/m2 (16 lb to 80 lb bond) grain long. Paper lighter
than 60 g/m2 (16 lb) may not feed properly, and could cause paper jams. For best
performance, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb bond) grain long paper.
Curl
Curl is the tendency of print media to curve at its edges. Excessive curl can
cause paper feeding problems. Curl usually occurs after the paper passes
through the printer, where it is exposed to high temperatures. Storing paper

unwrapped, even in the paper tray, can contribute to paper curling prior to
printing and cause feeding problems regardless of humidity. When printing on
curled paper, straighten the paper and then insert it into the single sheet feeder.
Smoothness
The degree of paper smoothness directly affects the print quality. If the paper is
too rough, the toner does not fuse on to the paper properly, resulting in poor
print quality. If the paper is too smooth, it can cause paper feeding problems.
Smoothness between 150 and 250 Sheffield points produces the best print
quality.
Moisture Content
The amount of moisture in the paper affects both the print quality and the ability
of the printer to feed the paper properly. Leave the paper in its original
packaging until you are ready to use it. This limits the exposure of the paper to
moisture changes that can degrade its performance.
Grain Direction
Grain refers to the alignment of the paper fibers in a sheet of paper. Grain is
either grain long, running the length of the paper, or grain short, running the
width of the paper. For 60 g/m2 to 135 g/m2 (16 lb to 36 lb bond) paper, grain
long fibers are recommended. For paper heavier than 135 g/m2 (36 lb bond),
grain short is preferred.
Fiber Content
Most high-quality xerographic paper is made from 100 % chemically pulped
wood. Paper containing fibers such as cotton may lead to degraded paper
handling.
Recommended Paper
To ensure the best print quality and feed reliability, use 75 g/m2 (20 lb)
xerographic paper. Business paper designed for general business use also
provides acceptable print quality. Only use paper able to withstand high
temperatures without discoloring, bleeding, or releasing hazardous emissions.
The laser printing process heats paper to high temperatures. Check with the
manufacturer or vendor to determine whether the paper you have chosen is
acceptable for laser printers.

It is recommended that you try a sample first before buying large quantities of
any print media. When choosing any print media, you should consider the
weight, fiber content, and color.
Unacceptable Paper
The following paper types are not recommended for use with the printer:
•
Chemically treated paper used to make copies without carbon paper, also
known as carbonless paper, carbonless copy paper (CCP), or no carbon
required (NCR) paper.
•
Preprinted paper with chemicals that may contaminate the printer.
•
Preprinted paper that can be affected by the temperature in the fuser.
•
Preprinted paper that requires a registration (the precise print location on the
page) greater than ±0.09 inches, such as optical character recognition (OCR)
forms.
In some cases, you can adjust registration with your software program to
successfully print on these forms.
•
Coated paper (erasable bond), synthetic paper, and thermal paper.
•
Rough-edged, rough or heavily textured surface paper, or curled paper.
•
Recycled paper containing more than 25 % post-consumer waste that does
not meet DIN 19 309.
•
Multiple-part forms or documents.
•
Print quality may deteriorate (blank spaces or blotches may appear in the
text) when printing on talc or acid paper.
Selecting Paper
Proper paper selection helps prevent jams and ensures trouble-free printing.
To help avoid jams or poor print quality:
•
Always use new, undamaged paper.
•
Before loading the paper, identify the recommended print side of the paper.
This information is usually indicated on the paper package.
•
Do not use paper that you have cut or trimmed.
•
Do not mix print media sizes, weights, or types in the same source. This may
result in a paper jam.

•
Do not remove the tray while printing is in progress.
•
Ensure that the paper is properly loaded in the tray.
•
Flex the paper back and forth, and then fan them. Straighten the edges of the
stack on a level surface.
Selecting Pre-Printed Media and Letterheads
When selecting pre-printed and letterhead paper for the printer:
•
Use grain long paper for best results.
•
Use only forms and letterheads printed using an offset lithographic or
engraved printing process.
•
Select paper that absorb ink, but does not bleed.
•
Avoid paper with rough or heavily textured surfaces.
•
Use paper printed with heat-resistant inks designed for use in xerographic
copiers. The ink must withstand temperatures of 225 °C (437 °F) without
melting or releasing hazardous emissions.
•
Use inks that are not affected by the resin in the toner or the silicone in the
fuser. Inks that are oxidation-set or oil-based should meet these requirements;
latex inks might not. If you are in doubt, contact your paper supplier.
Selecting Pre-Punched Paper
When selecting pre-punched paper for the printer:
•
Test paper from several manufacturers before ordering and using large
quantities of pre-punched paper.
•
Paper should be punched at the paper manufacturer and not drilled into paper
already packaged in a ream. Drilled paper can cause jams when multiple
sheets feed through the printer. This may result in a paper jam.

Print Media Guidelines
FILE LOCATION: C:\Users\fxstdpcadmin\Desktop\0630_UG??\Mioga_SFP_UG_FM\Mioga_SFP_UG_FM\section14.fm
•
Pre-punched paper can include more paper dust than standard paper. Your
printer may require more frequent cleaning and feed reliability may not be as
good as standard paper.
•
Weight guidelines for pre-punched paper are the same as non-punched paper.
Printing on a Letterhead (Pre-Printed and Pre-Punched Paper)
Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether the pre-printed
letterhead that you have selected is acceptable for laser printers.
Page orientation is important when printing on pre-printed paper such as
letterhead and pre-punched paper. The following table shows the orientation
when loading letterheads in the tray or feeders. For other pre-printed and prepunched paper, load the paper by reference to the following table.

Envelopes
Depending on the envelopes, it is possible to expect variable levels of wrinkling.
It is recommended that you try a sample first before buying large quantities of
any print media. See "Loading Envelopes in the Standard 250-Sheet Tray and
Optional 250-Sheet Feeder" or "Loading an Envelope in the SSF" for
instructions on loading an envelope.
When printing on envelopes:
•
Use only high-quality envelopes that are designed for use in laser printers.
•
Set the print media source to the single sheet feeder or the standard 250-sheet
tray. Set the paper type to Envelope, and select the correct size of envelope
from the printer driver.
•
Use envelopes made from 75 g/m2 (20 lb bond) paper. You can use up to 105
g/m2 (28 lb bond) weight for the envelope feeder as long as the cotton
content is 25 % or less. Envelopes with 100 % cotton content must not
exceed 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond) weight.
•
Use only freshly unpackaged, undamaged envelopes.
•
Use envelopes that can withstand temperatures of 205 °C (401 °F) without
sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions. If
you have any doubts about the envelopes you are considering, check with the
envelope supplier.

•
Adjust the guide to fit the width of the envelopes.
•
To load an envelope into the single sheet feeder, insert the envelope with the
flaps closed and the short-edge of the envelope facing into the printer. The
print side must be facing down.
•
See "Loading Envelopes in the Standard 250-Sheet Tray and Optional 250Sheet Feeder" or "Loading an Envelope in the SSF" for instructions on
loading an envelope.
•
Use one envelope size during a print job.
•
Ensure that the humidity is low because high humidity (more than 60 %) and
the high printing temperatures may seal the envelopes.
•
For best performance, do not use envelopes that:
–
Have excessive curl or twist
–
Are stuck together or damaged in any way
–
Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, or embossing
–
Use metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars
–
Have an interlocking design
–
Have postage stamps attached
–
Have any exposed adhesive when the flap is in the sealed or closed
position
–
Have nicked edges or bent corners
–
Have rough, cockle, or laid finishes
Labels
Your printer can print on many labels designed only for use with laser printers.
When selecting labels:
•
Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats must be able to
withstand temperatures of 205 °C (401 °F) and pressure of 25 pounds per
square inch (psi).
•
Use labels that can be without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or
releasing hazardous emissions.
•
Do not use label sheets with a slick backing material.

NOTICE: Before buying large quantities of any print media, it is recommended
that you try a sample first.
When printing on labels:
•
Use labels that can withstand temperatures of 205 °C (401 °F) without
sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.
•
Set the paper type to Label from the printer driver.
•
Use "Standard Tray" for label.
•
Do not print through "Single Sheet Feeder" for label.
•
Do not load labels together with paper in the same tray.
•
Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 inches) of the die-cut.
•
Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 inches) of the edge of the label, of the
perforations, or between die-cuts of the label.
•
Do not print a label through the printer more than once.
•
Portrait orientation is preferred, especially when printing bar codes.
•
Do not use labels that have exposed adhesive.
•
Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during
printing, resulting in a jam.
•
Do not use label sheets that have adhesive to the edge of the sheet. It is
recommended that zone coating of the adhesive is done at least 1 mm (0.04
inches) away from edges. Adhesive material contaminates your printer and
could void your warranty.
CAUTION: Otherwise the printer occur in a jam and contaminate your printer
and your cartridges with adhesive. As a result, could void your printer and cartridge
warranties.
Storing Print Media
For proper print media storage, the following guidelines will help to avoid
media feeding problems and uneven print quality.
•
Store print media in an environment where the temperature is approximately
21 °C (70 °F) and the relative humidity is 40 %.
•
Store cartons of print media on a pallet or shelf, rather than directly on the
floor.

User Setup Disk Creating Tool
The User Setup Disk Creating Tool program located in the MakeDisk folder
of the Utilities folder on the Drivers and Utilities CD and the printer drivers
located on the Drivers and Utilities CD are used to create driver installation
packages that contain custom driver settings. A driver installation package can
contain a group of saved printer driver settings and other data for things such as:
•
Print orientation and Multiple Up (document settings)
•
Watermarks
•
Font references
If you want to install the printer driver with the same settings on multiple
computers running the same operating system, create a setup disk in a floppy
disk or in a server on the network. Using the setup disk that you have created
will reduce the amount of work required when installing the printer driver.
•
Install the Dell™ 2150cn Color Printer driver in the computer on which the
setup disk is to be created.
•
The setup disk can only be used on the operating system on which the disk
was created or computers running the same operating system. Create a
separate setup disk for each of the operating systems.

The firmware and/or driver updates can be downloaded from the Dell Support
web site located at support.dell.com.

Understanding Fonts
Typefaces and Fonts
A font is a set of characters and symbols created with a distinct design. The
distinct design is called a typeface. The typefaces you select add personality to a
document. Well-chosen typefaces make a document easier to read.
The printer has numerous resident fonts in PCL 5/PCL 6. See "Resident Fonts"
for a listing of all resident fonts.
Weight and Style
Typefaces are often available in different weights and styles. These variations
modify the original typeface so you can, for example, emphasize important
words in text or highlight book titles. The different weights and styles are
designed to complement the original typeface.
Weight refers to the thickness of the lines that form the characters. Thicker lines
result in darker characters. Some words commonly used to describe the weight
of a typeface are bold, medium, light, black, and heavy.
Style refers to other typeface modifications, such as tilt or character width. Italic
and oblique are styles where the characters are tilted. Narrow, condensed, and
extended are three common styles that modify the character widths.
Some fonts combine several weight and style modifications; for example,
Helvetica BdOb. A group of several weight and style variations of a single
typeface is called a typeface family. Most typeface families have four variations:
regular, italic (oblique), bold, and bold italic (bold oblique). Some families have
more variations, as the following illustration for the Helvetica typeface family
shows:

Pitch and Point Size
The size of a font is specified as either a pitch or point size, depending on
whether the font is fixed space or proportional.
In fixed space fonts, each character has the same width. Pitch is used to specify
the size of fixed space fonts. It is a measure of the number of characters that will
print in one horizontal inch of type. For example, all 10-pitch fonts print 10
characters per inch (cpi) and all 12-pitch fonts print 12 cpi:
In proportional (or typographic) fonts, every character can have a different
width. Since proportional fonts have characters with different widths, the font
size is specified in point size, not pitch. Point size refers to the height of the
characters in the font. A point is defined as 1/72 inch. The characters in a font
printed at 24 point will be twice as large as the characters in the same font
printed at 12 point.
The following illustration shows samples of a font printed in different point
sizes:

FILE LOCATION: C:\Users\fxstdpcadmin\Desktop\0630_UG??\Mioga_SFP_UG_FM\Mioga_SFP_UG_FM\section21.fm
The point size of a font is defined as the distance from the top of the tallest
character in the font to the bottom of the lowest character in the font. Due to the
definition of point size, different fonts printed at the same point size may appear
quite different in size. This is because there are other font parameters that affect
how the font looks. However, the point size of a font is an excellent specification
of the relative size of a font. The following examples illustrate two very
different proportional fonts at 14 point:
Bitmapped and Scalable Fonts
The printer uses both bitmapped and scalable fonts.
Bitmapped fonts are stored in print memory as predefined patterns of bits that
represent a typeface at a specific size, style, and resolution. The following
illustration shows an example of a character from a bitmapped font.

Understanding Fonts
349
FILE LOCATION: C:\Users\fxstdpcadmin\Desktop\0630_UG??\Mioga_SFP_UG_FM\Mioga_SFP_UG_FM\section21.fm
Bitmapped fonts are available in different type styles and point sizes as
downloadable fonts.
Scalable fonts (also called outline fonts) are stored as computer programs that
define the outlines of the characters in the font. Each time you print characters
from a scalable font, the printer creates a bitmap of the characters at the point
size you choose and saves it temporarily in print memory.
These temporary bitmapped fonts are deleted when you turn off or reset the
printer. Scalable fonts provide the flexibility of printing in many different point
sizes.
Your printer uses different scalable font formats for downloading fonts to the
printer. PCL 5/PCL 6 uses Intellifont and TrueType scalable fonts. There are
thousands of different scalable fonts available in these different font formats
from numerous font suppliers.
If you plan to use many downloadable bitmapped or scalable fonts or if you plan
to use many different sizes of scalable fonts, you may need to purchase
additional memory for your printer.

Resident Fonts
Your printer is equipped with resident fonts stored permanently in print memory.
Different fonts are available in PCL 5/PCL 6. Some of the most popular
typefaces, like Courier and TimesNew, are available for all printer languages.
The following table lists all the fonts resident in your printer. See "Printing Font

Symbol Sets
A symbol set is the collection of alphabetic and numeric characters, punctuation,
and special characters available in the font you select. Symbol sets support the
requirements for different languages or specific applications, such as math
symbols used for scientific text.
In PCL 5/PCL 6, a symbol set also defines which character will print for each
key on the keyboard (or more specifically, for each code point). Some
applications require different characters at some code points. To support
multiple applications and languages, your printer has 36 symbol sets for the
resident PCL 5/PCL 6 fonts.
Symbol Sets for PCL 5/PCL 6
Not all font names support all of the symbol sets listed.

The Chart 1 is used to adjust the color registration for the fast scan direction,
which is vertical to paper feed direction. The Chart 2 is used to adjust the color
registration for the slow scan direction, which is horizontal to paper feed
direction.
The following sections explain how to determine the adjustment values for the
fast scan and the slow scan using Chart 1 and Chart 2.
Fast Scan
On the Chart 1 of the color registration chart, find the straightest lines where the
two black lines and the colored line are most closely aligned for each color (Y,
M, and C). If you find the straightest line, make a note of the value (-9 to +9)
indicated by the straightest line for each color.
When the value is 0 for each color, you do not need to adjust the color
registration for the fast scan.
When the value is not 0, enter the value using the procedure in "Entering
Values."
Maintaining Your Printer

Slow Scan
On the Chart 2 of the color registration chart, find the medium line within the
range of white area for each color pattern (Y, M, and C). If you find the medium
line, make a note of the value (-9 – +9) indicated by the medium line for each

Clearing Jams
Careful selection of appropriate print media and proper loading allow you to
avoid paper jams. See "Print Media Guidelines" for more information.
NOTE: Before buying large quantities of any print media, it is recommended to
try a sample first.
Avoiding Jams
•
Use only recommended print media. See "Print Media Guidelines" for more
information.
•
See "Loading Print Media in the Standard 250-Sheet Tray and the Optional
250-Sheet Feeder" and "Loading Print Media in the SSF" to load print media
properly.
•
Do not overload the print media sources. Ensure that the print media stack
height does not exceed the maximum height indicated by the load-line labels
in the tray.
•
Do not load wrinkled, creased, damp, or curled print media.
•
Flex, fan, and straighten print media before you load it. If a jam occurs with
print media, try feeding one sheet at a time through the single sheet feeder.
•
Do not use print media that you have cut or trimmed yourself.
•
Do not mix print media sizes, weights, or types in the same print media
source.
•
Ensure that the recommended print side is face up when you insert the print
media when using the standard 250-sheet tray and the optional 250-sheet
feeder. Also, the recommended print side should be face down when using
the single sheet feeder.
•
Keep print media stored in an acceptable environment. For more information,
see "Storing Print Media."
•
Do not remove the feeding tray during a print job.
•
Push the tray in firmly after loading.
•
Ensure that all cables that connect to the printer are correctly attached.

Overtightening the guides may cause jams.
•
Wipe the retard rollers in the tray or single sheet feeder with a cloth that is
slightly dampened with water if jams caused by misfeeding paper occur
frequently.
