  • Page 8: General Information

    General information General information Paper and label industry The paper and label industry includes manufacturers, converters, and distributors. • Manufacturers produce the base stock. If the base is for labels, then manufacturers may ship it on large rolls or in a cut‑sheet form.
  • Page 9: Design Factors

    An optional Universally Adjustable Tray designed for the Optra S, Optra T, and Lexmark T printer families prints on a range of paper sizes including A6 and 3 x 5‑inch index cards, 3 x 7‑inch punch cards, and 4 x 6‑inch postcards.
  • Page 10 Most label manufacturers recommend printing in a temperature range of 18–24°C (65–75°F) with relative humidity of 40–60%. Lexmark printers are designed to operate in a temperature range of 15.5–32°C (60 to 90°F) with relative humidity of 8 to 80%. Printing in an environment outside these recommendations may cause jams, feeding problems, reduced print quality, and predispensing (peeling) labels.

    (if applicable) • use of printing media outside of Lexmark specifications • use of non‑Lexmark supplies (such as toner cartridges and/or inkjet cartridges) • use of non‑Lexmark product or component Pick roller technology Some printers have an auto compensator which feeds paper more reliably than the corner buckler system used by earlier printer models.

  • Page 16: Card Stock

    Card stock Card stock Card stock is a rigid, stiff material that can have a wide variety of constructions. Orientation of paper fibers (grain direction), moisture content, thickness, texture, and other properties can significantly impact printing, as can preprinting, perforation, creasing, and other features common to forms. For example, preprinting introduces semi‑liquid, volatile components that must withstand the high temperatures used in laser printing.

  • Page 19: Offset Powders

    Card stock Offset powders We do not recommend using offset powders or other foreign materials to speed drying. Offset powders are used by print shops to prevent printed pages from sticking together. Powder is usually sprayed on the printed page right before it reaches the stacker on the offset printing press.
  • Page 20: Labels

    Labels Labels Labels , or pressure‑sensitive materials, are multi‑ply materials that contain various combinations of face sheets (printable stock), adhesives, and removable protective backings (liners). These layers can result in thick materials that are difficult to handle. Labels are among the most difficult print materials for any printer to reliably feed and print. Factors such as heat, pressure, and paper path could make printing on labels quite challenging.

    Labels Load label sheets with the label end first. Use grain long paper instead of grain short paper, which tends to curl easily. If a converter develops a grain short label sheet for duplexing, then test the sheet first to make sure it works satisfactorily. Note: We recommend testing any material with your application and printer before purchasing large quantities.
  • Page 23: Label Components

    The following table shows which printers use a corner buckler and which use an auto compensator. Note: If your printer is not listed here, then contact your Lexmark representative to verify which method your printer uses to separate sheets of labels.

    Labels The major adhesive‑related printing problem is printer and cartridge contamination. The adhesives are semi‑liquid and may contain volatile components. If the sheet jams in the fuser, the adhesive can melt, thereby contaminating parts of the printer or releasing fumes. To avoid exposing adhesive to the paper path guides, drive rollers, charge roller, photoconductor drum, transfer roller, and detack fingers, use full label sheets.
  • Page 26 Labels ‑ cut labels are cut with a non‑print area between each label. For best results, do not print within 2.3 mm (0.090 in.) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or of the die‑cuts of the label. If you are using a butt cut or die‑cut label, then make sure adhesive contamination does not occur.
