Tips on using labels

Note: This printer is intended for occasional paper label printing only.
Do not load labels together with paper or transparencies in the same source; mixing media can cause feeding
From the Paper menu, set the Paper Type to Labels.
Do not use labels with slick backing material.
Use labels that can withstand temperatures of 230°C (446°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or
releasing hazardous emissions.
Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets
also contaminate the printer and the cartridge with adhesive, and could void the printer and cartridge warranties.
Do not use labels with exposed adhesive.
Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 in.) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of the label.
Be sure adhesive backing does not reach to the sheet edge. Zone coating of the adhesive at least 1 mm (0.04 in.)
away from edges is recommended. Adhesive material contaminates the printer and could void the warranty.
If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, remove a 1.6 mm (0.06 in.) strip on the leading and driver edge,
and use a non-oozing adhesive.
Portrait orientation works best, especially when printing bar codes.

Tips on using card stock

Card stock is heavy, single-ply specialty media. Many of its variable characteristics, such as moisture content, thickness,
and texture, can significantly impact print quality. Print samples on the card stock being considered for use before
buying large quantities.
When printing on card stock:
Feed card stock from a 250-sheet tray, a 550-sheet tray, or the multipurpose feeder.
Make sure the Paper Type is Card Stock.
Select the appropriate Paper Texture setting.
Be aware that preprinting, perforation, and creasing may significantly affect the print quality and cause jams or
other paper handling problems.
Check with the manufacturer or vendor to ensure the card stock can withstand temperatures up to 230°C (446°F)
without releasing hazardous emissions.
Do not use preprinted card stock manufactured with chemicals that may contaminate the printer. Preprinting
introduces semi-liquid and volatile components into the printer.
Use grain short card stock when possible.

Printing confidential and other held jobs

Holding jobs in the printer

When sending a job to the printer, you can specify that you want the printer to hold the job in memory until you
start the job from the printer control panel. All print jobs that can be initiated by the user at the printer are called
held jobs.
Note: Confidential, Verify, Reserve, and Repeat print jobs may be deleted if the printer requires extra memory to
process additional held jobs.
