    Printer media specifications HP LaserJet printers produce excellent print quality. The printer accepts a variety of media, such as cut-sheet paper (including recycled paper), envelopes, labels, transparencies, vellum, and custom-sized media. Properties such as weight, grain, and moisture content are important factors affecting printer performance and output quality.

  • Page 77: Guidelines For Using Media

    Do not use raised letterhead. The printer uses heat and pressure to fuse toner to the paper. Make sure that any colored paper or preprinted forms use inks that are compatible with the printer temperature (200° C or 392° F for 0.1 second).

  • Page 78: Labels

    Labels When selecting labels, consider the quality of the following components: Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at 200° C (392° F), the printer’s maximum temperature. Arrangement: Only use labels that do not have exposed backing between them. Labels can peel off of sheets that have spaces between the labels, causing serious jams.

  • Page 79: Card Stock And Heavy Media

    Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with the heat and pressure in the printer: 200° C (392° F). The extra flaps and strips might cause wrinkling, creasing, or jams.
