Prepunched paper brands can differ in the number and placement of holes and in manufacturing techniques.
 
Use the following guidelines to select and use prepunched paper:
 
Test paper from several manufacturers before ordering and using large quantities of prepunched paper.
l
 
Paper should be punched at the paper manufacturer and not drilled into paper already packaged in a ream. Drilled paper can cause jams when multiple
l
sheets feed through the printer.
 
Prepunched paper could include more paper dust than standard paper. Your printer may require more frequent cleaning, and feed reliability may not be
l
as good as that of standard paper.
Transparencies
 
Try samples of any transparencies you are considering using with the printer before buying large quantities:
 
Use transparencies designed specifically for laser printers. Transparencies must be able to withstand temperatures up to 195° C (383° F) without
l
melting, discoloring, offsetting or releasing hazardous emissions.
 
Avoid getting fingerprints on the transparencies, which could result in poor print quality.
l
 
Before loading transparencies, fan the stack to prevent sheets from sticking together.
l
 
Transparencies are supported in Multi-purpose Feeder only.

Selecting Transparencies

 
The printer can print directly on to transparencies designed for use in laser printers. Print quality and durability depend on the transparency used. Always print
samples on the transparencies you are considering before buying large quantities.
 
Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether your transparencies are compatible with laser printers that heat transparencies up to 195° C
(383° F). Use only transparencies that are able to withstand these temperatures without melting, discoloring, offsetting, or releasing hazardous emissions.
Envelopes
 
Envelopes are supported in Multi-purpose Feeder only. Try a sample of any envelopes you are considering using with the printer before buying large
quantities. See
"Using the Multi-purpose Feeder"
 
When printing on envelopes:
 
To achieve the best possible print quality, use only high-quality envelopes that are designed for use in laser printers.
l
 
For best performance, use envelopes made from 75 g/m
l
Feeder with cotton content 25 percent or less.
 
Use only new, undamaged envelopes.
l
 
For best performance and to minimize jams, do not use envelopes that:
l
Have excessive curl or twist
¡
Are stuck together or damaged in any way
¡
Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, or embossing
¡
