3. P a p er i nf or m a ti o n For reliable digital press operation and good print quality, Xerox recommends the following: • On a flat surface. Do not store paper directly on the floor, since Stored paper: this increases the possibility of moisture absorption.
3. P a p er i nf or m a ti o n Curl When paper is exposed to heat, the paper loses moisture and curls toward the heat source. High coverage jobs tend to curl more due to the toner plastification effect on the paper surface. The system tries to reduce this by using mechanical devices within the paper path called decurlers.

Transparency guidelines Transparencies can be run from all the paper trays. Use only the transparencies recommended: • Xerox Removable Paper Stripe: USA and Canada, 3R5765; Xerox Europe, 003R91331. • Load transparencies into a tray with the paper stripe side facing DOWN and with the stripe as the leading edge. (The leading edge is the edge that feeds into the digital press first.)
3 . P ap e r i nf o r ma ti o n Drilled paper Three-hole drilled paper can be run from all the trays either LEF or SEF with the holes facing any direction. NOTE: If you are stapling 3-hole drilled paper with the optional Common Stacker Stapler (CSS), refer to page 4-31 for paper loading instructions based on the position of the staple.
