    Back to Contents Page Print Media Guidelines Paper Transparencies Envelopes Labels Storing Print Media Identifying Print Media Sources and Specifications Print media is paper, labels, envelopes, and coated paper among others. Your printer provides high-quality printing on a variety of print media. Selecting the appropriate print media for your printer helps avoid printing troubles. This section describes selecting print media, caring for print media, and loading the print media in the tray 1 or optional 550 sheet feeder.
  • Page 92: Grain Direction

    Leave the paper in its original packaging until you are ready to use it. This limits the exposure of the paper to moisture changes that can degrade its performance. Grain Direction Grain refers to the alignment of the paper fibers in a sheet of paper. Grain is either grain long, running the length of the paper, or grain short, running the width of the paper.
  • Page 93 Do not use paper that you have cut or trimmed yourself. Do not mix print media sizes, weights, or types in the same source. This may result in a paper jam. Do not remove the tray while a job is printing. Ensure that the paper is properly loaded in the tray.
  • Page 94: Selecting Transparencies

    Selecting Pre-Punched Paper When selecting pre-punched paper for the printer: Test paper from several manufacturers before ordering and using large quantities of pre-punched paper. Paper should be punched at the paper manufacturer and not drilled into paper already packaged in a ream. Drilled paper can cause jams when multiple sheets feed through the printer.
  • Page 95 Use only high-quality envelopes that are designed for use in laser printers. Set the print media source to the MPF. Set the paper type to Envelope, and select the correct size of envelope from the printer driver. For best performance, use envelopes made from 75 g/m (20 lb bond) paper.
  • Page 96: Storing Print Media

    Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 inches) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of the label. Do not use label sheets that have adhesive to the edge of the sheet. It is recommended that zone coating of the adhesive is at least 1 mm (0.04 inches) away from edges.

The distinct design is called a typeface. The typefaces you select add personality to a document.
  • Page 166: Bitmapped And Scalable Fonts

    In proportional (or typographic) fonts, every character can have a different width. Since proportional fonts have characters with different widths, the font size is specified in point size, not pitch. Point size refers to the height of the characters in the font. A point is defined as 1/72 inch. The characters in a font printed at 24 point will be twice as large as the characters in the same font printed at 12 point.
  • Page 167: Resident Fonts

    If you plan to use many downloadable bitmapped or scalable fonts or if you plan to use many different sizes of scalable fonts, you may need to purchase additional memory for your printer. Resident Fonts Your printer is equipped with resident fonts stored permanently in print memory. Different fonts are available in PCL 5/PCL 6 and PostScript 3.
