Tips for selecting and using paper
For the best results, observe the following guidelines.
Always use paper that conforms to the printer specifications. For more information, see Paper
specifications on page 167.
Load only one type of paper at a time into a tray or automatic document feeder (ADF).
When loading the trays and ADF, make sure the paper is loaded correctly. For more information,
see Load paper on page 16 or Load an original in the automatic document feeder (ADF)
on page 15.
Do not overload the tray or ADF. For more information, see Load paper on page 16 or Load an
original in the automatic document feeder (ADF) on page 15.
To prevent jams, poor print quality, and other printing problems, avoid loading the following
paper in the trays or ADF:
Media that is damaged, curled, or wrinkled
Media with cutouts or perforations
Media that is heavily textured, embossed, or does not accept ink well
Media that is too lightweight or stretches easily
Media that contains staples or clips
