    It is possible that paper could meet all of the guidelines in this chapter or the HP LaserJet Printer Family Print Media Guide and still not print satisfactorily. This can result from abnormal characteristics of the printing environment or other variables over which HP has no control (for example, extremes in temperature and humidity).

  • Page 77: Printing And Paper-storage Environment

    Printing and paper-storage environment Ideally, the printing and paper-storage environment should be at or near room temperature, and not too dry or too humid. Remember paper is hygroscopic; it absorbs and loses moisture rapidly. Heat works with humidity to damage paper. Heat causes the moisture in paper to evaporate, while cold causes it to condense on the sheets.
