Selecting Preprinted Forms and Letterhead
Use the following guidelines when selecting preprinted forms and letterhead paper for the printer:
Use long grain paper for best results.
Use only forms and letterhead printed using an offset lithographic or engraved printing process.
Choose papers that absorb ink but do not bleed.
Avoid papers with rough or heavily textured surfaces.
Use papers printed with heat-resistant inks designed for use in xerographic copiers. The ink must withstand temperatures up to 180° C (356° F) without
melting or releasing hazardous emissions. Use inks that are not affected by the resin in toner or the silicone in the fuser. Oxidation-set or oil-based inks
should meet these requirements; latex inks might not. If you are in doubt, contact your paper supplier.
