Guidelines for Paper and Special
Materials
Choosing Paper and Other
Materials
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other special
materials, keep these guidelines in mind:
• Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper
can cause paper jams and poor print quality.
• Use cut-sheet paper only. You cannot use multi-part paper.
• Use only high-quality, copier grade paper for the best print
quality.
• Do not use paper with irregularities, such as tabs or staples.
• Do not attempt to load the tray while printing, and never overfill
the tray. This could cause a paper jam.
• Avoid paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a texture
that is too smooth or too rough.
• Coloured paper should be of the same high quality as white
photocopy paper. The pigments must be able to withstand the
printer’s fusing temperature of 180 °C (356 °F) for 0.1 seconds
without deteriorating. Do not use paper with a coloured coating
that was added after the paper was produced.
• Preprinted forms must be printed with nonflammable, heatresistant ink that does not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous
emissions when subjected to the printer’s fusing temperature.
• Load special paper types one sheet at a time.
• Store paper in its ream wrapper until you are ready to use it.
Place cartons on pallets or shelves, not on the floor.
• Do not place heavy objects on top of the paper, whether it is
packaged or unpackaged.
• Keep paper away from moisture, direct sunlight, or other
conditions that can cause it to wrinkle or curl.
You can print on a variety of print materials, such as plain
paper, envelopes, labels, card stock, and so on. See “Printing
on Special Print Materials” on page 3.3. To get the best possible
print quality, use only high-quality, copier-grade paper.
When you choose print materials, consider the following:
• Desired outcome: The paper you choose should be
appropriate for the project.
• Size: You can use any size paper that fits easily within the
paper adjusters of the tray.
• Weight: Your printer supports paper weights as follows:
-16~24 lbs bond(60~90 g/m2) for the tray
-16~43 lbs bond(60~163 g/m2) for the manual feed mode
• Brightness: Some papers are whiter than others and
produce sharper, more vibrant images.
• Surface smoothness: The smoothness of the paper affects
how crisp the printing looks on the paper.
CAUTION: Using a material that does not conform to the
specifications listed on page 8.3 can cause problems that may
require service. This service will not be covered by the
warranty or service agreements.
NOTES:
• Do not use carbonless paper or tracing paper. These types of
paper are unstable at the fusing temperature and can give off
fumes, or cause damage to the printer.
• Sometimes damp paper produces steam during the fusing
stage of printing. This should not cause concern.
3.1
Using Print Materials
If you want to print on previously printed paper, the printed side
should be facing up with the uncurled edge toward the printer.
If you experience problems with the paper feeding, turn the
paper around.
Verifying the Output Location
The printer has the output tray that collects paper face-down,
in correct order.
Using Manual Feed Mode
If you select Manual Feed in the Source option, you can
manually load paper in the tray. Manually loading paper can be
helpful when you want to check the print quality after each
page is printed.
If you experience a paper jam from the tray, load one sheet of
paper at a time into the tray.
1
Load the print material in the tray with the print side up.
NOTES:
• If you continuously print many pages, the surface of the
output tray may become hot. Be careful not to touch the
surface, and especially keep children away from the surface.
• The output tray can hold up to 100 sheets of paper. Remove
the pages so that the tray is not overloaded.
Adjust the paper guide against the print material without
bending the paper.
Loading Paper
2
Proper paper loading helps prevent paper jams and ensures
trouble-free printing. Do not remove the tray while a job is
printing. Doing so may cause a paper jam. See “Type and
Capacities” on page 3.1 for acceptable paper capacities for tray.
When you print a document, you must select Manual
Feed for Source from the software application, and then
select the correct paper size and type. For details, see
Software Section.
3
Press the
button on the printer to start feeding.
NOTE: If you do not press the button after a pause, the paper
Using the Tray
will be automatically fed into the printer.
Tray can hold a maximum of 150 sheets of plain A4 or lettersized paper. It can also hold 1 sheet of special material, such as
cards, envelopes, labels, and transparency.
4
Printing is started.
5
If you are printing multiple pages, load the next sheet
after the first page prints out, and press the
button.
To load paper, pull the tray and the load the paper with the
print side up.
Repeat this step for every page to be printed.
For details about loading paper in the tray, see “Loading Paper”
on page 2.3.
3.2
Using Print Materials
Printing on Labels
Printing on Special Print Materials
• Only use labels recommended for your printer.
• Verify that the labels’ adhesive material can tolerate a fusing
temperature of 180 °C (356 °F) for 0.1 seconds.
Printing on Envelopes
• Make sure that there is no exposed adhesive material
between the labels. Exposed areas can cause labels to peel
off during printing, which can cause paper jams. Exposed
adhesive can also cause damage to printer components.
• Only use envelopes recommended for your printer. Before
loading envelopes in the tray, make sure that they are
undamaged and are not stuck together.
• Do not feed stamped envelopes.
• Never print on the same sheet of labels more than once, or
print on a partial sheet of labels.
• Never use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows, coated
linings, or self-stick adhesives.
• Do not use labels that are separating from the backing sheet
or are wrinkled or damaged in any way.
To print on envelope:
1
Squeeze the paper length guide and slide it out to its full
length.
2
Load a sheet of envelope in the tray, with the flap side
down. The end of the envelope with the stamp area
enters the printer first.
3
Slide in the paper length guide until it lightly touches the
end of the paper stack.
4
Slide the paper width guide to the edge of the envelope
without causing it to bend.
• To prevent labels from sticking together, do not let the
printed label sheets stack up as they are printed out.
To print on label:
1
Squeeze the paper length guide and slide it out to its full
length.
2
Load a sheet of label in the tray, with the print side up
and the top, short edge in first. Adjust the guides to fit

Printing on Transparencies
Printing on Preprinted Paper
• Place them on a flat surface after removing them from the
machine.
• Preprinted paper is paper that has some type of printing on
it before it is sent through the printer (paper that has a
preprinted logo at the top of the page, for example).
• Do not leave them in the tray for long periods of time. Dust
and dirt may accumulate on them resulting in spotty
printing.
• Letterhead must be printed with heat-resistant ink that will
not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when
subjected to the printer’s fusing temperature of 180 °C (356
°F) for 0.1 seconds.
• To avoid smudging caused by fingerprints, handle them and
coated paper carefully.
• Ink on letterhead must be non-flammable and should not
adversely affect printer rollers.
• To avoid fading, do not expose the printed transparencies to
prolonged sunlight.
• Forms and letterhead should be sealed in moisture-proof
wrapping to prevent changes during storage.
CAUTION: It is not recommended to use paperbacked
transparencies such as Xerox 3R91334, which can cause a jam
or be scratched.
To print on transparency:
• Before you load preprinted paper, such as forms and
letterhead, verify that the ink on the paper is dry. During the
fusing process, wet ink can come off of preprinted paper,
reducing the print quality.
1
Squeeze the paper length guide and slide it out to its full

materials can be printed with your printer. The minimum size
is 3in by 5in (76mm by 127mm) and the maximum size is
8.5in by 14in (216mm by 356mm).
• Always insert the short edge into the tray first. If you want
to print in landscape mode, make this selection using your
software. Inserting these materials long edge first may
cause a paper jam.
• Do not print on material smaller than 3in (76mm) wide or
5in (127mm) long.
• In the software application, set margins at least 4mm away
from the edges of the material.
To print on card stock:

From time to time, you need to replace the following items to
maintain top performance and to avoid print quality problems
resulting from worn parts.
To purchase replacement parts, contact your Xerox dealer or
the retailer where you bought your printer. We strongly
recommend that items be installed by a trained service
professional, except for the toner cartridges (see 5.3), the
imaging unit (see 5.4), and the waste toner container (see 5.6).
The following items should be replaced after you have printed
the specified number of pages or when the life span of each
item has expired. The Status Monitor program window will
appear on the computer, indicating which item needs to be
replaced.
If you use refilled toner cartridges, print quality may be
reduced.
5.1
Supplies and maintenance items
1
Open the front cover.
2
Pull the corresponding toner cartridge out to remove from
the printer.
3
Holding the toner cartridge, shake thoroughly it from side
to side to redistribute the toner.
Managing Toner Cartridges
Toner Cartridge Storage
To get the maximum results from a toner cartridge, keep the
following guidelines in mind:
• Do not remove toner cartridges from their packages until
you are ready to use them.
• Do not refill toner cartridges. The printer warranty does
not cover damage caused by using a refilled cartridge.
• Store toner cartridges in the same environment as the
printer.
• To prevent damage to toner cartridges, do not expose them
to light for more than a few minutes.
Toner Cartridge Life Expectancy
The life of a toner cartridge depends on the amount of toner
that your print jobs require. When printing text at 5%
coverage, the toner cartridges last an average of 2,000 pages
for black and white printing and 1,000 pages for each colour
printing. However, the toner cartridge that is shipped with the
printer prints 1,500 pages for black and white, 700 pages for
colours.
Redistributing Toner
When a toner cartridge is low on toner, faded or light areas may
appear. It is also possible that coloured images may be printed
with incorrect colours due to flawed mixing of toner colours
when one of the coloured toner cartridges is low on toner. The
Status Monitor program window appears on the computer
telling you which colour cartridge is low on toner. Also, when
the toner LED, on the control panel, indicating each individual
toner cartridge according to its colour, blinks, the toner
cartridge is low.
The printer is able to continue to print using the current toner
cartridge until the Status Monitor program window appears on
the computer telling you to replace the cartridge.
You may be able to temporarily improve print quality by
redistributing the toner.
To redistribute the toner:
5.2
Supplies and maintenance items

Clearing Paper Jams
NOTE: When removing paper that is jammed in the printer, if
possible always pull the paper in the direction that it normally
moves so as not to damage internal components. Always pull
firmly and evenly; do not jerk the paper. If the paper tears,
ensure that all fragments of paper are removed; otherwise a
jam will occur again.
If a paper jam occurs, the
LED on the control panel lights
red. Find and remove the jammed paper.
To resume printing after clearing paper jams, you must open
and close the front cover or rear cover.

Solving Problems
Solution
If a vertical white streak or faded area appears on the
page:
• The toner supply is low. You may be able to
temporarily extend the toner cartridge life. See
“Redistributing Toner” on page 5.2. If this does not
improve print quality, install a new toner cartridge.
• The paper may not meet paper specifications (for
example, the paper is too moist or too rough). See
“Paper Specifications” on page 8.1.
• A combination of faded or smeared defects may
indicate that the printer needs cleaning. See
page 5.7.
The paper may not meet specifications (for example,
the paper is too moist or too rough). See “Paper
Specifications” on page 8.1.
If generally rounded, faded areas occur randomly on
the page:
• A single sheet of paper may be defective. Try
reprinting the job.
• The moisture content of the paper is uneven or the
paper has moist spots on its surface. Try a different
brand of paper. See “Paper Specifications” on
page 8.1.
• The paper lot is bad. The manufacturing process
can cause some areas to reject toner. Try a different
kind or brand of paper.
• The toner cartridge may be defective. See “Vertical
repetitive defects” on the next page.
• Change the printer option and try again. Go to
printer properties, click Paper tab, and set paper
type to Thick. Refer to the Software Section for

If the amount of background shading becomes
unacceptable, the procedures below may fix the
problem.
• Change to lighter weight paper. See “Paper
Specifications” on page 8.1.
• Check the printer’s environment; very dry (low
humidity) or high humidity (higher than 80% RH)
conditions can increase the amount of background
shading.
• Remove one of the old toner cartridges and install a
new one.
• Clean the inside of the printer. See “Cleaning the
Inside of the Printer” on page 5.7
• Check the paper type and quality. See “Paper

• Remove the imaging unit and install a new one. See
“Replacing the Imaging Unit” on page 5.4.
• Clean the inside of the printer. See “Cleaning the
Inside of the Printer” on page 5.7. After cleaning
the inside of the printer, if you still have the same
problems, install a new toner cartridge of the
problem colour. See “Replacing Toner Cartridges”
on page 5.3.
• Parts of the printer may have toner on them. If the
defects occur on the back of the page, the problem
will likely correct itself after a few more pages.
• The fusing assembly may be damaged. Contact a
service representative.
Background scatter results from bits of toner
distributed on the printed page.
• The paper may be too damp. Try printing with a
different batch of paper. Do not open packages of
paper until necessary so that the paper does not
absorb too much moisture.
• If background scatter occurs on an envelope,
change the printing layout to avoid printing over
areas that have overlapping seams on the reverse
side. Printing on seams can cause problems.
• If background scatter covers the entire surface area
of a printed page, adjust the print resolution
through your software application or via the printer
properties window.
Misformed
characters
• If characters are improperly formed and producing
hollowed images, the paper stock may be too slick.
Try a different paper. See “Paper Specifications” on

Solving Problems

Problem
Some letters are not
displayed normally
during the Cover page
printing.
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
I can’t make a printer
the system default.
In some conditions, it may not be possible to
change the default queue. This happens with some
variants of LPRng, especially on recent RedHat
systems that use the “printconf” database of
queues.
Possible Cause and Solution
This problem is caused because Mac OS can not
create the font during the Cover page printing.
English alphabet and numbers are displayed
normally at the Cover page.
When using printconf, the /etc./printcap file is
automatically refreshed from the database of
printers managed by the system (usually through
the “printtool” command), and the queues in /
etc./printcap.local are appended to the resulting
file. The default queue in LPRng is defined as the
first queue in /etc./printcap, and therefore it is
not possible for the Linux Printer Package to change
the default when some queues have otherwise been
defined using printtool.
Common Linux Problems
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
I can’t change settings
in the configuration
tool.
You need to have administrator privileges to be able
to change global settings.
I am using the KDE
desktop but the
configuration tool and
LLPR won’t start.
You may not have the GTK libraries installed. These
usually come with most Linux distributions, but you
may have to install them manually. Refer to your
distribution’s installation manual for more details
about installing additional packages.
I just installed this
package but can’t find
entries in the KDE/
Gnome menus.
Some versions of the KDE or GNOME desktop
environments may require that you restart your
session for the changes to take effect.
I get a “Some options
are not selected” error
message while editing
the printer settings.
Some printers have conflicting settings, meaning
that some settings for two options can’t be selected
at the same time. When you change a setting and
the Printer Package detects such a conflict, the
conflicting option is changed to a “No Choice” value.
You have to choose an option that does not conflict
before being able to submit the changes.
LPD systems identify the default queue as the one
named “lp”. Thus, if there is already a queue by this
name, and if it doesn’t have an alias, then you won’t
be able to change the default. To work around this,
you can either delete the queue or rename it by
manually editing the /etc./printcap file.
The N-up setting does
not work correctly for
some of my
documents.
The N-up feature is achieved through postprocessing of the PostScript data that is sent to the
printing system. However, such post-processing can
only be adequately achieved if the PostScript data
conforms to the Adobe Document Structing
Conventions. Problems may arise when using N-up
and other features that rely on post-processing if
the document being printed isn’t compliant.
I am using BSD lpr
(Slackware, Debian,
older distributions)
and some options
chosen in LLPR don’t
seem to take effect.
Legacy BSD lpr systems have a hard limitation on
the length of the option string that can be passed to
the printing system. As such, if you selected a
number of different options, you may have
exceeded the length of the options and some of
your choices won’t be passed to the programs
responsible for implementing them. Try to select
fewer options that deviate from the defaults, to
save on memory usage.
I am trying to print a
document in
Landscape mode, but
it prints rotated and
cropped.
Most Unix applications that offer a Landscape
orientation option in their printing options will
generate correct PostScript code that should be
printed as is. In that case, you need to make sure
that you leave the LLPR option set to its default
Portrait setting, to avoid unwanted rotations of the
page that would result in cropped output.
6.9
Solving Problems
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
Some pages come out
all white (nothing is
printed), and I am
using CUPS.
If the data being sent is in Encapsulated PostScript
(EPS) format, some earlier versions of CUPS (1.1.10
and before) have a bug preventing them from being
processed correctly. When going through LLPR to
print, the Printer Package will work around this
issue by converting the data to regular PostScript.
However, if your application bypasses LLPR and
feeds EPS data to CUPS, the document may not
print correctly.
On my PCL (or GDI)
printer, I sometimes
get error messages
printing instead of my
document.
I can’t print to an SMB
(Windows) printer.
To be able to configure and use SMB-shared printers
(such as printers shared on a Windows printer), you
need to have a correct installation of the SAMBA
package that enables that feature. The “smbclient”
command should be available and usable on your
system.
Unfortunately, some Unix applications may generate
non-compliant PostScript output that may not be
supported by Ghostscript, or even the printer itself
in PostScript mode. You can try to capture the
output to a file and view the results with Ghostscript
(gv or ghostview will allow you to do so
interactively) and see if you get error messages.
However, since the application is probably at fault,
contact your software vendor to inform them of the
issue.
Some colour images
come out all black.
My application seems
to be frozen while
LLPR is running.
Most Unix applications will expect a command like
the regular “lpr” command to be non-interactive
and thus return immediately. Since LLPR is waiting
for user input before passing the job on to the print
spooler, very often the application will wait for the
process to return, and thus will appear to be frozen
(its windows won’t refresh). This is normal and the
application should resume functioning correctly
after the user exits LLPR.
This is a known bug in Ghostscript (until GNU
Ghostscript version 7.05) when the base colour
space of the document is indexed colour space and
it is converted through CIE colour space. Because
Postscript uses CIE colour space for Colour Matching
System, you should upgrade Ghostscript on your
system to at least GNU Ghostscript version 7.06 or
later. You can find recent Ghostscript versions at
www.ghostscript.com.
The machine does not
print.
The CUPS (Common Unix Printing System) version
distributed with SuSE Linux 9.2 (cups-1.1.21) has a
problem with ipp (Internet Printing Protocol)
printing.
How do I specify the
IP address of my SMB
server?
It can be specified in the “Add Printer” dialogue of
the configuration tool, if you don’t use the CUPS
printing system. Unfortunately, CUPS currently
doesn’t allow you to specify the IP address of SMB
printers, so you will have to be able to browse the
resource with SAMBA in order to be able to print.
Some documents
come out as white
pages when printing.
Some versions of CUPS, especially those shipped
with Mandrake Linux before the 8.1 release, have
some known bugs when processing PostScript
output from some applications. Try upgrading to the
latest version of CUPS (at least 1.1.14). Some RPM
packages for the most popular distributions are
provided as a convenience with this Linux Printing
Package.
I have CUPS and some
options (such as Nup) seem to be always
enabled even though I
don’t choose them in
LLPR.
There may be some local options defined in your ~/
.lpoptions file, which are manipulated by the
lpoptions command. These options are always used
if not overridden by LLPR settings. To get rid of all
options for a printer, run the following command,
replacing “printer” with the name of the queue:
lpoptions -x printer
I configured a printer
to print to a file, but I
get “Permission
denied” errors.
Most printing systems will not run as the super-user
but as a special user (usually “lp”). Therefore, make
sure that the file you have chosen to print to is
accessible to the user owning the spooler daemon.
Use the socket printing instead of ipp or install later
version of CUPS (cups-1.1.22 or higher).
Some color images
come out in
unexpected color.
This is a known bug in Ghostscript (until GNU
Ghostscript version 7.xx) when the base colour
space of the document is indexed RGB colour space
and it is converted through CIE colour space.
Because Postscript uses CIE color space for Colour
Matching System, you should upgrade Ghostscript
on your system to at least GNU Ghostscript version
8.xx or later. You can find recent Ghostscript
versions at www.ghostscript.com.

NOTES:
Solution
• Do not use letterhead paper printed with low-temperature
inks, such as those used in some types of thermography.
• Do not use raised or embossed letterhead.
• The printer uses heat and pressure to fuse toner to the
paper. Ensure that any coloured paper or preprinted forms
use inks that are compatible with this fusing temperature
(180 °C or 356 °F for 0.1 second).
NOTE: You may experience jams when using print materials
with a length of less than 140 mm (5.5 in). For optimum
performance, ensure that you are storing and handling the
paper correctly. Please refer to “Printer and Paper Storage
Environment” on page 8.3.

Ideally, the printer and paper storage environment should be at
or near room temperature, and not too dry or humid.
Remember that paper is hygroscopic; it absorbs and loses
moisture rapidly.
Heat works with humidity to damage paper. Heat causes the
moisture in paper to evaporate, while cold causes it to
condense on the sheets. Heating systems and air conditioners
remove most of the humidity from a room. As paper is opened
and used, it loses moisture, causing streaks and smudging.
Humid weather or water coolers can cause the humidity to
increase in a room. As paper is opened and used it absorbs any
excess moisture, causing light print and dropouts. Also, as
paper loses and gains moisture it can become distorted. This
can cause paper jams.
Care should be taken not to purchase more paper than can be
used in a short time (about 3 months). Paper stored for long
periods may experience heat and moisture extremes, which
can cause damage. Planning is important to prevent damage to
large supplies of paper.

Unopened paper in sealed reams can remain stable for several

The paper storage environment should be properly maintained
to ensure optimum printer performance. The required condition
is 20 to 24 °C (68 to 75 °F), with a relative humidity of 45 %
to 55 %. The following guidelines should be considered when
evaluating the paper’s storage environment:
Manual feed mode
1 sheet of 60~163 g/m2 paper
• Paper should be stored at or near room temperature.
Input Tray
Capacity
• The air should not be too dry or too humid.
• The best way to store an opened ream of paper is to rewrap
it tightly in its moisture-proof wrapping. If the printer
environment is subject to extremes, unwrap only the
amount of paper to be used during the day’s operation to
prevent unwanted moisture changes.
Envelopes
Envelope construction is critical. Envelope fold lines can vary
considerably, not only between manufacturers, but also within
a box from the same manufacturer. Successful printing on
envelopes depends upon the quality of the envelopes. When
selecting envelopes, consider the following factors:
• Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed
90 g/m2 (24 lb) or jamming may occur.
• Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should lie flat with
less than 6 mm (0.25 in) curl, and should not contain air.
8.3
Specifications
Envelope Margins
• Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled, nicked, or
otherwise damaged.
The following gives typical address margins for a commercial
#10 or DL envelope.
• Temperature: You should use envelopes that are compatible
with the heat and pressure of the printer.
Type of Address
• Size: You should only use envelopes within the following size
ranges.

NOTES:
• For best print quality, position margins no closer than 0.6 in
(15 mm) from the edges of the envelope.
• Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams
meet.
NOTE: You may experience some paper jams when using any
media with a length less than 127 mm(5 in). This may be
caused by paper that has been affected by environmental
conditions. For optimum performance, make sure you are
storing and handling the paper correctly. Please refer to
“Printer and Paper Storage Environment” on page 8.3.
Envelope Storage
Proper storage of envelopes helps contribute to print quality.
Envelopes should be stored flat. If air is trapped in an envelope,
creating an air bubble, then the envelope may wrinkle during
printing. See “Printing on Envelopes” on page 3.3.
Envelopes with Double Side Seams
Double side-seam construction has vertical seams at both ends
of the envelope rather than diagonal seams. This style may be
more likely to wrinkle. Be sure the seam extends all the way to
the corner of the envelope as illustrated below.
Labels
CAUTION:
• To avoid damaging the printer, use only labels recommended
for laser printers.
• Never print on the same sheet of labels more than once and
never print on a partial sheet of labels.
Correct
When selecting labels, consider the quality of each component:
• Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at 180 °C
(356 °F), the printer’s fusing temperature.
• Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing
between them. Labels can peel off sheets with spaces
between the labels, causing serious jams.
• Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than
0.5 in (13 mm) of curl in any direction.
Incorrect
• Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other
indications of separation.
Envelopes with Adhesive Strips or Flaps
See “Printing on Labels” on page 3.3.
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one
flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with
the heat and pressure in the printer. The extra flaps and strips
might cause wrinkling, creasing, or even jams, and may even
damage the fuser.
Transparencies
Transparencies used in the machine must be able to withstand
180 °C (356 °F), the machine’s fusing temperature.
CAUTION: To avoid damaging the machine, use only
transparencies recommended for use in laser printers.

page 5 for more information on accessing printer properties.
You can set advanced settings by clicking the Advanced
Options button.
• TrueType Options: This option determines what the driver
tells the printer about how to image the text in your document.
Select the appropriate setting according to the status of your
document. This option may be available only in
Windows 9x/Me, depending on your particular printer
model.
- Download as Bit Image: When this option is selected, the
driver will download the font data as bitmap images.
Documents with complicated fonts, such as Korean or
Chinese, or various other fonts, will print faster in this setting.
- Print as Graphics: When this option is selected, the driver
will download any fonts as graphics. When printing documents
with high graphic content and relatively few TrueType fonts,
printing performance (speed) may be enhanced in this
setting.
• Print All Text Black: When the Print All Text Black option
is checked, all text in your document prints solid black,
regardless of the colour it appears on the screen.
• Darken Text: When the Darken Text option is checked, all
text in your document is allowed to print darker than on a
normal document.
Click the Graphics tab to display the properties shown below..
Quality
The Resolution options you can select may vary depending
on your printer model. The higher the setting, the sharper the
clarity of printed characters and graphics. The higher setting also
may increase the time it takes to print a document.
Colour Mode
You can choose colour options. Setting to Colour typically
produces the best possible print quality for colour documents. If
you want to print a colour document in black and white document,
select Black & White. If you want to adjust the colour options
manually, select Manual and click the Colour Adjust or Colour
Matching button.
• Colour Adjust : You can adjust the appearance of images by
changing the settings in the Levels option.
• Colour Matching : You can adjust the appearance of images by

What is an Overlay?
Dear ABC
Regards
WORLD BEST
An overlay is text and/or images stored in the computer hard
disk drive (HDD) as a special file format that can be printed on
any document. Overlays are often used to take the place of
preprinted forms and letterhead paper. Rather than using
preprinted letterhead, you can create an overlay containing the
exact same information that is currently on your letterhead. To
print a letter with your company’s letterhead, you do not need
to load preprinted letterhead paper in the printer. You need only
tell the printer to print the letterhead overlay on your
document.
