Note
Do not allow media to go above the fill limit mark inside the tray or the

Media Storage
Keep media on a flat, level surface in its original wrapper until it is time to
load it.
If media has been removed from its wrapper, place it in its original packaging
and store in a cool, dark place.
When storing media, avoid
̈ Moisture, excess humidity
Keep media between 30% to 65% relative humidity. Toner does not
adhere well to moist or wet paper
On the other hand, media that has been stored for a long time without
staying in its packaging may dry up too much and also cause jamming.
̈ Direct sunlight
̈ Excess heat (up to 35°C/95°F)
̈ Dust
̈ Leaning against other objects or placed in an upright position
Before purchasing a large quantity or special media, do a trial printing with
the same media and check the print quality.

Page Margins
Margins are set through your application. Some applications allow you to set
custom page sizes and margins while others have only standard page sizes
and margins from which to choose. If you choose a standard format, you may
lose part of your image (due to imageable area constraints). If you can
custom-size your page in your application, use those sizes given for the
imageable area for optimum results.

How do I load and print envelopes?
Before printing on envelopes, we recommend printing a test page. If
the print result is not oriented as desired, select Rotated (Paper tab/
Orientation option).
Do not use envelopes that have
̈ Sticky flaps

In the printer driver (Setup tab/Media Type option), select Envelope.
Select the size of the envelope (Paper tab/Original Document Size
option).
Place the envelopes on a flat surface, and flatten them by pressing down
the corners.
Flex the envelope stack (including the edges) to remove any stiffness.
Correct any bent corners, and tap the envelopes on a flat surface to align
them.
Squeeze the right paper guide
and open the paper guides.
Load the envelopes lengthwise and the printing-side up as shown in the
illustrations.
Printing on Media
Note
Print envelopes on the front address side only. Some parts of the
envelope consist of three layers of paper—the front, back, and flap.
Anything printed in these layered regions may be lost or faded.
8
Recheck the paper guides to make sure they are adjusted to the width of
the envelopes.
Note
Improperly adjusted guides may cause poor print quality, media
jams, or printer damage.
9
10
Print the envelopes.
Open the flap of each envelope immediately (before it cools) after the
envelope is delivered to the output tray.
4A
Because the envelopes pass through heated rollers, the gummed
area on the flaps may seal. Using envelopes with emulsion-based
glue avoids this problem.
How do I load and print labels?
A label consists of a face sheet (the printing surface), adhesive, and a carrier
sheet:
̈ The face sheet must follow the plain paper specification.
̈ The face sheet surface must cover the entire carrier sheet, and no
adhesive should come through on the surface.
You can print continuously with label paper. However, this could affect the
media feed, depending on the media quality and printing environment. If
problems occur, stop the continuous print and print one sheet at a time.
Format label data within your application. Try printing your data on a plain
sheet of paper first to check placement. Check your application documentation for other information on printing labels.
Do not use label sheets that
̈ Have labels that easily peel off
Labels may stick to the fuser, causing them to peel off and media jams to
occur.

How do I load and print transparencies?
Note
Using unsupported transparency media such as coated color
transparencies will result in damaging the printer and in voiding your
warranty.
Remove transparency media as soon as possible from the output tray to
avoid static buildup.
If you touch the face of transparencies with your bare hands, print quality may
