    Postcards Follow these guidelines when printing on postcards: ❏ Postcards should not be greater than 0.28 mm in thickness. ❏ Postcards should be free of glue, clips, and staples. ❏ Do not use postcards that are damaged or curled, or that have special coatings or an irregular shape.

  • Page 29: Paper Path

    Understanding how paper travels inside the printer helps you better handle paper loading and jams. A sheet of paper enters the printer from the cassette or the manual feed slot. It travels to the image transfer area where the printer drum has been statically charged.

  • Page 30: Selecting Paper Delivery, Face-down Delivery

    Selecting Paper Delivery Use the delivery selection cover to choose face-up or face-down delivery. When the cover is open, face-up delivery is selected. When the cover is closed, face-down delivery is selected. Face-down Delivery Printouts are stacked in order in the face-down delivery slot (which can hold up to 125 sheets of 64 g/m To select face-down delivery, close the delivery selection cover.

  • Page 31: Face-up Delivery

    Opening/closing the delivery selection cover while printing could cause a paper jam. ❏ The printer is not equipped with a face-up delivery tray. The delivered paper must be removed manually. ❏ Make sure there is enough room at the front of the face-up delivery slot for the paper to exit.

  • Page 32: Loading Paper Into The Cassette

    Loading Paper into the Cassette The cassette can hold up to approximately 250 sheets of 64 g/m paper for high-volume printing. Acceptable paper sizes are Letter, A4, Executive, and B5. It also accepts envelopes, postcards, or special paper with a maximum height of 25 mm. Before loading paper on the cassette, first select the paper delivery.

  • Page 33

    Remove the manual feed slot. Set the stack of paper with the printing side facing up. The top edge of the paper should be inside the printer. Slide the stack into the cassette until it stops. Do not load more than 250 sheets of 64 g/m paper higher than 25 mm.

  • Page 34

    Adjust the paper guides on the right, left, and front to the size of the paper. Adjust the paper guides so that there is no space between the paper guide and the edge of the stack of paper. Set the manual feed slot on the cassette. When reloading, be sure to remove any paper remaining in the cassette.

  • Page 35: Loading Envelopes Into The Cassette

    Loading Envelopes into the Cassette Before Loading Envelopes Please be sure to follow these steps before loading envelopes: Place the envelopes on a flat surface and press the corners down in the direction shown to flatten the envelopes. Flex the envelope stack, including all four edges, to remove any stiffness.

    ❏ Often applications will let you change the feeding direction of envelopes. Confirm the feeding direction of envelopes before printing. ❏ If a postcard is not fed smoothly into the printer, gently push the top of the postcard toward the manual feed slot until the roller inside the printer takes the card and feeds it into the printer.

  • Page 41

    ❏ Do not force the paper into the printer or printing problems might result. ❏ For continuous manual feed, insert a new sheet only when the previous sheet has come out completely from the delivery slot. If a new sheet is inserted before the previous sheet has been delivered, a paper jam may occur.
