NOTE: Dell recommends using 3M transparencies for the Dell MFP 1125.  Print Media Guidelines Print media refers to paper, card stock, transparencies, labels, and envelopes.

  • Page 17: Moisture Content

    Curl Curl is the tendency of print media to curve at its edges. Excessive curl can cause paper feeding problems. Curl usually occurs after the paper passes through the printer, where it is exposed to high temperatures. Storing paper unwrapped in humid conditions, even in the paper tray, can contribute to paper curling prior to printing and can cause feeding problems.
