 Labels
Your printer can print on many labels designed for use with laser printers. Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats must be able to
withstand temperatures of 205°C (401°F) and pressure of 25 pounds per square inch (psi). Before buying large quantities of any print media, it is 
recommended that you try a sample first.
When printing on labels:
 Set the paper type to Label from the printer driver.
l
 Do not load labels together with paper in the same tray. This may result in a jam.
l
 Do not use label sheets with a slick backing material.
l
 Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 inches) of the die cut.
l
 Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets also contaminate your printer and your
l
cartridge with adhesive, and could void your printer and cartridge warranties.
 Use labels that can withstand temperatures of 205°C (401°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.
l
 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.
l
 Do not use label sheets that have adhesive to the edge of the sheet. It is recommended that zone coating of the adhesive is done at least 1 mm (0.04
l
inches) away from the edges. Adhesive material contaminates your printer and could void your warranty.
 If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, a 3 mm (0.125 inches) strip should be removed on the leading and driver edge, and a non-oozing
l
adhesive should be used.
 Remove a 3 mm (0.125 inches) strip from the leading edge to prevent labels from peeling inside the printer.
l
 Portrait orientation is preferred, especially when printing bar codes.
l
 Do not use labels that have exposed adhesive.
l
 Storing Print Media
For proper print media storage, the following guidelines help avoid media feeding problems and uneven print quality.
 For best results, store print media in an environment where the temperature is approximately 21°C (70°F) and the relative humidity is 40%.
l
 Store cartons of print media on a pallet or shelf, rather than directly on the floor.
l
 If you store individual packages of print media out of the original carton, ensure that they rest on a flat surface so that the edges do not buckle or curl.
l
 Do not place anything on top of the print media packages.
l
