Try a sample of any transparencies you are considering using with the printer before buying
• Use transparencies designed specifically for laser printers. Transparencies must be able
to withstand temperatures of 180°C (356°F) without melting, discoloring, offsetting or
releasing hazardous emissions.
• Avoid getting fingerprints on the transparencies, as this can cause poor print quality.
• Before loading transparencies, fan the stack to prevent the sheets from sticking
• Load one transparency at a time into the MPF.
The printer can print directly on transparencies which have been designed for use in laser
printers. Print quality and durability depends on the transparency used. Always print samples
on the transparencies you are considering before buying large quantities.
Check with the manufacturer or vendor to determine whether your transparencies are
compatible with laser printers that heat transparencies to 180°C (356°F). Use only
transparencies that are able to withstand these temperatures without melting, discoloring,
offsetting, or releasing hazardous emissions.

When printing on envelopes:
• To achieve the best possible print quality, use only high-quality envelopes that are
designed for use in laser printers.
• For best performance, use envelopes made from 80 g/m
use up to 90 g/m
percent or less.
• Use only new, undamaged envelopes.
• For best performance and to minimize jams, do not use envelopes that:
– Have excessive curl or twist
– Are stuck together or damaged in any way
– Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts or embossing
– Use metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars
Have an interlocking design
– Have postage stamps attached
– Have any exposed adhesive when the flap is in the sealed or closed position
– Have nicked edges or bent corners
