Guidelines for selecting and storing print media
When selecting or loading paper, envelopes, or other print materials, keep 
these guidelines in mind:
Always use print media that conform with the specifications listed on 
page 34
Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can cause 
paper jams and poor print quality.
For the best print quality, use only high quality copier grade paper 
specifically recommended for use in laser printers.
Avoid using the following media types:
- Paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a texture that is too 
smooth or too rough
- Erasable bond paper
- Multi-paged paper
- Synthetic paper and thermally reactive paper
- Carbonless paper and Tracing paper. 
Use of these types of paper could result in paper jams, chemical smells, 
and damage to your printer.
Store print media 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 
it away from moisture or other conditions that can cause it to wrinkle or 
curl.
Store unused print media at temperatures between 15
C and 30
C. The 
relative humidity should be between 10% and 70%.
Store unused print media in a moisture-proof wrap, such as a plastic 
container or bag, to prevent dust and moisture from contaminating your 
paper.
Load special media types one sheet at a time through the manual tray to 
avoid paper jams.
To prevent print media, such as transparencies and label sheets, from 
sticking together, remove them as they print out.

Envelopes
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/m
2
 or jamming may occur.
- Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should 
lie flat with less than 6 mm curl, and should not 
contain air.
- Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled, 
nicked, or otherwise damaged.
- Temperature: You should use envelopes that are 
compatible with the heat and pressure of the 
machine during operation.
Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp and 
well creased folds.
Do not use stamped envelopes.
Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows, 
coated lining, self-adhesive seals, or other synthetic 
materials.
Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.
Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope 
extends all the way to the corner of the envelope.

Acceptable
2
Unacceptable
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with 
more than one flap that folds over to seal must use 
adhesives compatible with the machine’s fusing 
temperature for 0.1 second. Check your machine’s 
specification to view the fusing temperature, see 
page 86. The extra flaps and strips might cause 
wrinkling, creasing, or jams, and may even damage 
the fuser.
For the best print quality, position margins no closer 
than 15 mm from the edges of the envelope.
Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s 
seams meet.
