    This printer supports many types of paper. However, the quality of some images may be reduced if you do not use the correct paper for your application. For example, images with large regions of intense color, where many ink drops are needed to fully saturate the color, will not print well on HP Bright White InkJet Paper. On Coated paper, the same images might cause the paper to wrinkle and then come into contact with the printheads, smearing your print and risking damage to the printhead.
