Loading Paper Manually
The manual feed slot allows you to load paper manually, one sheet at a
time. You can load transparencies, labels, envelopes, postcards, or other
special paper. You can also load plain paper, which is useful when you
want to use paper that is a different size from the paper in the MP tray.
Before loading paper manually, always select the paper delivery ﬁrst. For
transparencies, labels, envelopes, postcards, and other special paper,
face-up delivery must be used. Plain paper can use both the face-up and
face-down delivery methods. Face-down delivery is limited to plain paper
with weight between 64 and 105 g/m

the postcard downwards until the roller inside the printer takes the
