Dell recommends that you follow these guidelines when evaluating new paper stock. Weight The tray automatically feeds paper weights from 60 to 163 g/m (16 to 60 lb bond) grain long.
  • Page 111: Moisture Content

    Storing paper unwrapped in humid conditions, even in the paper tray, can contribute to paper curling prior to printing and cause feeding problems. Smoothness The degree of paper smoothness directly affects print quality. If the paper is too rough, the toner does not fuse to the paper properly, resulting in poor print quality.

The distinct design is called a typeface. The typefaces you select add personality to a document. Well-chosen typefaces make a document easier to read.
  • Page 192: Pitch And Point Size

    Pitch and Point Size The size of a font is specified as either a pitch or point size, depending on whether the font is fixed space or proportional. In fixed space fonts, each character has the same width. Pitch is used to specify the size of fixed space fonts. It is a measure of the number of characters that will print in one horizontal inch of type.
  • Page 193: Bitmapped And Scalable Fonts

    Bitmapped and Scalable Fonts The printer uses both bitmapped and scalable fonts. Bitmapped fonts are stored in printer memory as predefined patterns of bits that represent a typeface at a specific size, style, and resolution. The following illustration shows an example of a character from a bitmapped font.
  • Page 194: 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 printer memory. Different fonts are available in PCL 5/PCL 6 and PostScript 3.
