Print Media Guidelines
15
Print media can be 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
Multipurpose Feeder (MPF) or Priority Sheet Inserter (PSI).
NOTE: The images used in this manual are those of the Dell™ C1760nw Color Printer unless otherwise mentioned.
NOTE: PSI is available only for Dell C1760nw Color Printer.
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. Before buying large quantities of any print media,
it is recommended that you try a sample first.
When loading paper, identify the recommended print side on the paper package, and load the paper accordingly. See
"Loading Print Media in the Multipurpose Feeder (MPF)" on page 151 and "Loading Print Media in the Priority
Sheet Inserter (PSI) (Dell C1760nw Color Printer only)" on page 159 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
Both MPF and PSI automatically feed paper whose weights range from 60 to 163 g/m2 (16 to 44 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 feeder, 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 MPF or PSI.
Smoothness
The degree of paper smoothness directly affects print quality. If the paper is too rough, the toner does not fuse 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 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 to 135 g/m2 (16 to 36 lb bond) paper, grain long
fibers are recommended. For paper heavier than 135 g/m2 (36 lb bond), grain short is preferred.
Print Media Guidelines
143
Fiber Content
Most high-quality xerographic paper is made from 100% chemically pulped wood. Paper containing fibers such as
cotton possess characteristics that can result in degraded paper handling.
Recommended Paper
To ensure the best print quality and feed reliability, use dry 75 g/m2 (20 lb) xerographic paper. Business paper
designed for general business use also provide 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.
NOTE: Always print several samples before buying large quantities of any type of 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 fusing unit
•
Preprinted paper that require 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, thermal paper
•
Rough-edged, rough or heavily textured surface paper, or curled paper
•
Recycled paper containing more than 25% post-consumer waste that do 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.
•
Moist paper that may cause wrinkle
Selecting Paper
Proper paper selection helps prevent jams and ensures trouble-free printing.
To help avoid jams or poor print quality:
•
Always use new, dry, and 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 yourself.
•
Do not mix print media sizes, weights, or types in the same source. This may result in a paper jam.
•
Do not remove the PSI while a job is printing.
•
Ensure that the paper is properly loaded in the MPF or PSI.
•
Flex paper back and forth, and then fan them. Straighten the edges of the stack on a level surface.
144
Print Media Guidelines
Selecting Preprinted Media and Letterhead
When selecting preprinted media and letterhead paper for the printer:
•
Use grain long paper for best results.
•
Use only forms and letterhead printed using an offset lithographic or engraved printing process.
•
Select paper that absorb ink, but do not bleed.
•
Avoid paper with rough or heavily textured surfaces.
•
Use paper printed with heat-resistant inks designed for use in xerographic copying machines. 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 toner or the silicone in the fusing unit. 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.
Printing on Letterhead
Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether the pre-printed letterhead you have selected is
acceptable for laser printers.
Page orientation is important when printing on letterhead. Use the following illustration for help when loading
letterhead in the print media sources.
Loading Letterhead
Load the letterhead in the printer with the print side facing up. Ensure that the title on the letterhead enters the
printer first.

Print Media Guidelines
145
Selecting Pre-Punched Paper
Pre-punched paper brands can differ in the number and placement of holes and in manufacturing techniques.
However, it may not be possible to print on the paper to depending on the placement of holes on the paper.
To select and use pre-punched paper:
•
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.
•
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.
Envelopes
Depending on the choice of envelopes, it is possible to expect variable levels of light wrinkling. Before buying large
quantities of any print media, it is recommended that you try a sample first. See "Loading Print Media in the
Multipurpose Feeder (MPF)" on page 151 or "Loading Print Media in the Priority Sheet Inserter (PSI) (Dell
C1760nw Color Printer only)" on page 159 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 MPF or PSI. Set the paper type to Envelope, and select the correct size of envelope
from the printer driver.
•
For best performance, 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 envelope in MPF or PSI, the print side must be facing up.
•
See "Loading Envelopes in the Multipurpose Feeder (MPF)" on page 156 or "Loading an Envelope in the Priority
Sheet Inserter (PSI)" on page 161 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:
146
–
Have excessive curl or twist
–
Are stuck together or damaged in any way
–
Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, embossing
–
Use metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars
–
Have an interlocking design
–
Have postage stamps attached
–
Have nicked edges or bent corners
Print Media Guidelines
–
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.
CAUTION: 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.
•
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.
WARNING: Otherwise a jam occurs in the printer 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 help avoid media feeding problems and uneven print
quality.
•
For best results, 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.
•
If you store individual packages of print media out of the original carton, ensure that they rest on a flat surface so
that the edges do not buckle or curl.
•
Do not place anything on top of the print media packages.

Maintaining Your Printer
Periodically, your printer requires you to complete certain tasks to maintain optimum print quality. If several people
are using the printer, you may want to designate a key operator to maintain your printer. Refer printing problems and
maintenance tasks to this key operator.
NOTE: The images used in this manual are those of the Dell™ C1760nw Color Printer unless otherwise mentioned.
Determining the Status of Supplies
If your printer is connected to the network, the Dell Printer Configuration Web Tool can provide instant feedback
on remaining toner levels. Type the IP address of your printer in your web browser to view this information. To use
the E-Mail Alert feature that notifies you when the printer requires new supplies, type your name or the name of the
key operator in the e-mail list box.
On the operator panel, you can also confirm the following:
•
Any supply or maintenance items that require attention replacing (However, the printer can only display
information about one item at a time).
•
Amount of toner remaining in each toner cartridge.
Conserving Supplies
You can change several settings in your printer driver to conserve toner cartridge and paper.

The printer prints two or more pages on one side of a sheet. The available
Layout tab of the printer numbers that each printer driver can print one sheet of paper are as follows:
driver
• Printer driver for Microsoft® Windows®: 2, 4, 8, 16, or 32 pages
• Printer driver for Macintosh: 2, 4, 6, 9, or 16 pages
Combined with the duplex setting, Multiple Up allows you to print up to 64
pages on one sheet of paper. (32 images on the front and 32 on the back)
Storing Print Media
To avoid potential paper feeding problems and uneven print quality, you need to consider the following points:
•
To achieve the best possible 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.
•
If you store individual packages of print media out of the original carton, ensure that they rest on a flat surface so
the edges do not buckle or curl.
•
Do not place anything on top of the print media packages.
Maintaining Your Printer
187
Storing Consumables
Store consumables in their original packaging until you need to use them. Do not store consumables in:
•
Temperatures greater than 40°C (104°F).
•
An environment with extreme changes in humidity or temperature.
•
Direct sunlight.
•
Dusty places.
•
A car for a long period of time.
•
An environment where corrosive gases are present.
•
An environment with salty air.
