Grain refers to the alignment of the paper fibers in a sheet of paper. Grain is either long grain, running the length of the paper, or short grain, running the
width of the paper.
For 60 to 90 g/m
(16 to 24 lb bond) paper, long grain fibers are recommended. For papers heavier than 90 g/m
For the Multi-purpose Feeder, 60 to 90 g/m
Most high-quality xerographic paper is made from 100% chemically pulped wood. This content provides the paper with a high degree of stability resulting in
fewer paper feeding problems and better print quality. Paper containing fibers, such as cotton, possess characteristics that can result in degraded paper
To ensure the best print quality and feed reliability, use 75 g/m
provide acceptable print quality.
Always print several samples before buying large quantities of any type of print media. When choosing any print media, consider the weight, fiber content, and
Use only paper able to withstand these temperatures without discoloring, bleeding, or releasing hazardous emissions. Check with the paper manufacturer or
vendor to determine whether the paper you have chosen is acceptable for laser printers.
The following papers are not recommended for use with the printer:
Chemically treated papers used to make copies without carbon paper, also known as carbonless papers, carbonless copy paper (CCP), or no carbon
required (NCR) paper
Preprinted papers with chemicals that may contaminate the printer
Preprinted papers that can be affected by the temperature in the printer fuser
Preprinted papers that require a registration (the precise print location on the page) greater than
Coated papers (erasable bond), synthetic papers, thermal papers
Rough-edged, rough or heavily textured surface papers, or curled papers
Recycled papers containing more than 25% post-consumer waste that do not meet DIN 19 309
Recycled paper having a weight less than 60 g/m
Multiple-part forms or documents
Proper paper loading helps prevent jams and ensures trouble-free printing.
To help avoid jams or poor print quality:
Always use new, undamaged paper.
Before loading paper, know the recommended print side of the paper you are using. 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. Mixing results in jams.
