General Guidelines for Selecting or Loading Print Media
Attempting to print on damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper can cause paper jams and poor print
Use only high-quality, copier-grade paper for the best print quality.
Avoid paper with embossed lettering, perforations, or a texture that is too smooth or rough. Paper
jams may occur.
Store paper in its packaging until you are ready to use it. Place cartons on pallets or shelves, not
on the floor.
Do not place heavy objects on top of the media, whether or not it is packaged.
Keep paper away from moisture or other conditions that can cause it to wrinkle or curl.
Store unused paper at temperatures ranging between 15°C and 30°C (59°F and 86°F). The
relative humidity should be between 10% and 70%.
During storage, you should use moisture-proof wrap, such as a plastic container or bag, to prevent
dust and moisture from contaminating the paper.
