Labels: Ensure the Label or Envelope is properly loaded.

• Do not use any sheet where labels are missing, curled or
pulled away from the backing sheet.
• Ensure the envelopes are loaded properly and within
specifications. Envelopes will run from the Bypass Tray or
Tray 1. See the Related Content section for additional
information about loading envelopes. Best results – use
optional Envelope Tray.
•The Envelope Tray can replace Tray 2.
• If envelopes are wrinkling, ensure the envelopes are within specification.
•If loading Envelopes long edge feed (LEF), select Landscape in the print driver.
Solution: Load & Print Labels
You can print labels from Tray 1, Tray 2 and for best results, Tray 5.
Guidelines for Printing Labels:
•Use labels designed for laser printing. •Do not use vinyl labels or dry gum labels.
•Do not feed a sheet of labels through the printer more than once.
•Print only on one side of the sheet of labels. Use full sheet labels only.
•Store unused labels flat in their original packaging. Leave the sheets of labels inside the original
packaging until ready to use. Return any unused sheets of labels to the original packaging and reseal it.
•Do not store labels in extremely dry or humid conditions or extremely hot or cold conditions. Storing
them in extreme conditions can cause print-quality problems or cause them to jam in the printer.
•Rotate stock frequently. Long periods of storage in extreme conditions can cause labels to curl and jam
in the printer.
•In the print driver software, select Label as the paper type.
•Before loading labels, remove all other paper from the tray.
CAUTION: Do not use any sheet where labels are missing, curled, or pulled away from the backing sheet.
It could damage the printer.
