The right media makes

in the most professional manner possible and the
right media can help.
HP engineers its paper and media products with this
need in mind. Our complete line of products guarantees
you will find the right media for your specific purpose
and printer. Having the right tools saves time and money
because you don’t overspend on materials. You also
know that the paper you choose will work flawlessly with
your equipment thereby reducing your intervention and
maintenance. See the ordering information section on the
back page for a list of media designed to work with the
HP LaserJet 1012 printer.
• Home offices—It’s never been this easy or affordable
to bring laser printing into the home office.
• Single users in corporate environments—Print
confidential and draft documents in your office,
for your eyes only, then print the final copies for
presentation to your colleagues, clients, and
other customers.
