Paper That Can Damage Your Printer

Your printer is designed to use a variety of media types for print jobs. However, some media can cause
poor output quality, increased paper jams, or damage to your printer.
Unacceptable media includes:
Rough or porous media
Plastic media
Paper that has been folded or wrinkled
Paper with staples
Envelopes with windows or metal clasps
Padded envelopes
Non-laser glossy or coated paper
Perforated media
Paper Storage Guidelines
Providing good storage conditions for your paper and other media contributes to optimum print quality.
Store paper in dark, cool, relatively dry locations. Most paper items are susceptible to damage from
ultraviolet (UV) and visible light. UV radiation, which is emitted by the sun and fluorescent bulbs, is
particularly damaging to paper items. The intensity and length of exposure to visible light on paper
items should be reduced as much as possible.
Maintain constant temperatures and relative humidity.
Avoid attics, kitchens, garages, and basements for storing paper.
Store paper flat. Paper should be stored on pallets, cartons, shelves, or in cabinets.
Avoid having food or drinks in the area where paper is stored or handled.
Do not open sealed packages of paper until you are ready to load them into the printer. Leave paper in
the original packaging. For most commercial cut-size grades, the ream wrapper contains an inner
lining that protects the paper from moisture loss or gain.
Leave the media inside the bag until you are ready to use it; reinsert unused media in the bag and reseal
it for protection. Some specialty media is packaged inside resealable plastic bags.
