Selecting Pre-Punched Paper
Pre-punched paper brands can differ in the number and placement of holes and in manufacturing techniques. However, it may not be possible to print on the
paper to depending on the placement of holes on the paper.
To select and use pre-punched paper:
 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. This may result in a paper jam.
 Pre-punched paper can include more paper dust than standard paper. Your printer may require more frequent cleaning and feed reliability may not be
as good as standard paper.
 Weight guidelines for pre-punched paper are the same as non-punched paper.
Depending on the choice of envelopes, it is possible to expect variable levels of light wrinkling. Before buying large quantities of any print media, it is
recommended that you try a sample first. See
Sheet Feeder"
for instructions on loading an envelope.
When printing on envelopes:
 Use only high-quality envelopes that are designed for use in laser printers.
 Set the print media source to the single sheet feeder or standard 250-sheet tray. 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
as long as the cotton content is 25% or less. Envelopes with 100% cotton content must not exceed 90 g/m
 Use only freshly unpackaged, undamaged envelopes.
 Use envelopes that can withstand temperatures of 205°C (401°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions. If 
you have any doubts about the envelopes you are considering, check with the envelope supplier.
 Adjust the guide to fit the width of the envelopes.
 To load envelope in the single sheet feeder, insert the envelope with the flaps closed and the short-edge of the envelope facing into the printer. The
print side must be facing down.
