The printer can print directly on transparencies designed for use in laser printers. Print quality and durability
depend on the transparency used. Before buying large quantities of any print media, Dell recommends trying
a sample first.
The Paper Type setting should be set to Transparency to help prevent jams. (See
information about this setting.) Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether your
transparencies are compatible with laser printers that reach temperatures as high as 205°C (401°F). Only
use transparencies that are able to withstand these temperatures without melting, discoloring, offsetting, or
releasing hazardous emissions.
You can load envelopes in the multipurpose feeder for a single print job. Before buying large quantities of
any print media, Dell recommends trying a sample first. See
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 MPF. Set the Paper Type to Envelope, and select the correct size of
envelope from the printer driver.
Use only new, undamaged envelopes.
For best performance, do not use envelopes that:
Have excessive curl or twist
Are stuck together or damaged in any way
Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, embossing
Use metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars
Have an interlocking design
Have postage stamps attached
Have any exposed adhesive when the flap is in the sealed or closed position
Have nicked edges or bent corners
Have rough, cockle, or laid finishes
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.
