Acceptable paper and
other media
The print quality can be affected by the type
of paper you are using in the machine.
To get the best print quality for the settings
you have chosen, always set the Paper Type
to match the type of paper you load.
You can use plain paper, inkjet paper (coated
paper), glossy paper, transparencies and
We recommend testing various paper types
before buying large quantities.
For best results, use Brother paper.
When you print on inkjet paper (coated
paper), transparencies and photo paper,
be sure to choose the proper media in the
'Basic' tab of the printer driver or in the
Paper Type setting of the menu (See
Paper Type on page 26).
When you print on Brother photo paper,
load the instruction sheet included with the
photo paper in the paper tray first, and
then put the photo paper on top of the
instruction sheet.
When you use transparencies or photo
paper, remove each sheet at once to
prevent smudging or paper jams.
Avoid touching the printed surface of the
paper immediately after printing; the
surface may not be completely dry and
may stain your fingers.
Loading documents and paper

Recommended media

We recommend using '3M Transparency

Handling and using media

Store paper in its original packaging, and
keep it sealed. Keep the paper flat and
away from moisture, direct sunlight and
The coated side of photo paper is shiny.
Avoid touching the shiny (coated) side.
Load photo paper with the shiny side
facing down.
Avoid touching either side of
transparencies because they absorb
water and perspiration easily, and this
may cause decreased output quality.
Transparencies designed for laser
printers/copiers may stain your next
document. Use only transparencies
recommended for inkjet printing.
