Tips on using labels

Print samples on the labels being considered for use before buying large quantities.
Note: Use only paper label sheets. Vinyl, pharmacy, and two‑sided labels are not supported.
When printing on labels:
Use labels designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to verify that:
The labels can withstand temperatures up to 240°C (464°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling,
or releasing hazardous emissions.
Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats can withstand up to 172‑kPa (25‑psi) pressure
without delaminating, oozing around the edges, or releasing hazardous fumes.
Do not use labels with slick backing material.
Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial
sheets also contaminate the printer and the cartridge with adhesive, and could void the printer and toner
cartridge warranties.
Do not use labels with exposed adhesive.
Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 inch) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die‑cuts of the
label.
Make sure the adhesive backing does not reach to the edge of the sheet. Zone coating of the adhesive
should be at least 1 mm (0.04 inch) away from edges. Adhesive material contaminates the printer and could
void the warranty.
If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, then remove a 2‑mm (0.08‑inch) strip on the leading and
driver edge, and then use a non‑oozing adhesive.
Portrait orientation is recommended, especially when printing bar codes.

Tips on using letterhead

Use letterhead designed specifically for laser printers.
Print samples on the letterhead being considered for use before buying large quantities.
Before loading letterhead, flex, fan, and straighten the stack to prevent sheets from sticking together.
Page orientation is important when printing on letterhead. For information on how to load letterhead, see:
"Loading trays" on page 24
"Loading the multipurpose feeder" on page 28

Tips on using transparencies

Print a test page on the transparencies being considered for use before buying large quantities.
Feed transparencies from the standard tray, or the multipurpose feeder.
Use transparencies designed specifically for laser printers. Transparencies must be able to withstand
temperatures up to 185°C (365°F) without melting, discoloring, offsetting, or releasing hazardous emissions.
Note: If the transparency weight is set to Heavy and the transparency texture is set to Rough in the Paper
menu, then transparencies can be printed at a temperature up to 195°C (383°F).
Avoid getting fingerprints on the transparencies to prevent print quality problems.
Before loading transparencies, flex, fan, and straighten the stack to prevent sheets from sticking together.
