weight and grade:
JIS B4 (Japanese): 10.12 by 14.33 inches / 257 by 364 mm
US Ledger/US Tabloid: 11 by 17 inches / 279 by 432 mm
A3: 11.69 by 16.54 inches / 297 by 420 mm.
Use a good quality, xerographic-grade paper. For best results,
use paper that is 20-pound or 80 gsm (grams per square meter)
bond, xerographic grade. Xerox 4024 Dual Purpose Paper
provides optimal performance in the printer. Refer to the
consumable supplies table later in this appendix.
Use paper within these parameters:
Lightest: 16-pound or 65 gsm bond
Heaviest: 110-pound or 200-gsm index.
NOTE: It is recommended that you use 24-pound paper with
MICR applications, or paper specified by your local banking
The paper stock should have the following characteristics:
Low moisture content (a paper-to-moisture ratio below 5.7
percent). Paper with higher moisture content may curl and
No defects (bent edges, uneven surfaces)
Grain long (parallel with the long side of paper).
Paper is usually fed into the printer with the long side as the
leading edge (except 11 by 17-inch or A3 paper). When you
purchase paper, buy long-grain paper. Make sure the grain is
parallel with the long side (long-grain) for the most reliable
feeding and stacking.
Following are some guidelines for choosing and using special
Labels: Must be the type designed for high-speed printers
and must meet the specifications described in the section
above. Loading instructions are printed on all paper trays.
Use only the processor feeding trays (trays 1 and 2) for
labels. Load labels in the tray with the label side up.
