    Because labels are sensitive to extreme temperature and humidity, always use them under normal operating conditions. Do not leave labels loaded in the printer between jobs; they curl around the platen and may jam when you resume printing. To remove labels from the paper path after you finish printing, tear off the labels at a point before the paper slot.
