Print-media specifications

This section contains information about specifications for the quality of print media, guidelines for print media usage, and guidelines for print media storage.

General guidelines

Some print media might meet all of the guidelines in this manual and still not produce satisfactory results. This problem might be the result of improper handling, unacceptable temperature and humidity levels, or other variables over which Hewlett-Packard has no control.

Before purchasing large quantities of print media, always test a sample and make sure that the print media meets the requirements specified in this user guide and in the HP LaserJet Printer Family Print Media Guide . For ordering information, see Accessories and ordering information .

Using print media that does not meet HP specifications can cause problems for the printer, requiring repair. This repair is not covered by the Hewlett-Packard warranty or service agreements.
Use only paper designed for laser printers. Paper for inkjet printers may damage the printer.

This printer accepts a variety of media, such as cut-sheet paper (including up to 100% recycled-fiber-content paper), envelopes, labels, transparencies, HP LaserJet glossy paper, HP LaserJet Tough paper, HP LaserJet Photo paper, and custom-size paper. Properties such as weight, composition, grain, and moisture content are important factors that affect printer performance and output quality. Print media that does not meet the guidelines outlined in this manual can cause the following problems:

  • Poor print quality

  • Increased jams

  • Premature wear on the printer, requiring repair

Printing and storage environment

Ideally, the printing and media-storage environment should be at or near room temperature, and not too dry or too humid. Remember that paper is hygroscopic; it absorbs and loses moisture rapidly.

Heat causes the moisture in paper to evaporate, while cold causes it to condense on the sheets. Heating systems and air conditioners remove most of the humidity from a room. As paper is opened and used, it loses moisture, causing streaks and smudging. Humid weather or water coolers can cause the humidity to increase in a room. As paper is opened and used it absorbs any excess moisture, causing light print and dropouts. Also, as paper loses and gains moisture it can distort. This issue can cause jams.

As a result, paper storage and handling are as important as the paper-making process itself. Paper storage environmental conditions directly affect the feed operation and print quality.

Care should be taken not to purchase more paper than can be easily used in a short time (about three months). Paper stored for long periods can experience heat and moisture extremes, which can cause damage. Planning is important to prevent damage to a large supply of paper.

Unopened paper in sealed reams can remain stable for several months before use. Opened packages of paper have more potential for environmental damage, especially if they are not wrapped with a moisture-proof barrier.

The media-storage environment should be properly maintained to ensure optimum printer performance. The recommended condition is 20° to 24°C (68° to 75°F), with a relative humidity of 45% to 55%. The following guidelines should be helpful when evaluating the paper's storage environment:

  • Print media should be stored at or near room temperature.

  • The air should not be too dry or too humid (to moderate the hygroscopic properties of paper).

  • The best way to store an opened ream of paper is to rewrap it tightly in its moisture-proof wrapping. If the printer environment is subject to extremes, unwrap only the amount of paper to be used during the day's operation to prevent unwanted moisture changes.

  • Avoid storing paper and print media near heating and air conditioning vents or near windows and doors that are frequently open.

Envelopes

Envelopes can be printed from Tray 1 or Tray 2. Select the type of envelope that you are using from the Print dialog box or the printer driver.

In your program, set the margins for the envelope. The following table gives typical address margins for a commercial #10 or DL envelope.

Type of address
Top margin
Left margin
Return address
15 mm (0.6 inch)
15 mm (0.6 inch)
Delivery address
51 mm (2 inches)
89 mm (3.5 inches)
  • For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15 mm (0.6 inch) from the edges of the envelope.

  • Avoid printing over the area where the envelope seams meet.

Envelope storage

Proper storage of envelopes helps contribute to print quality. Envelopes should be stored flat. If air is trapped in an envelope and creates an air bubble, then the envelope might wrinkle during printing.

Envelope construction

Envelope construction is critical. Envelope fold lines can vary considerably, not only between manufacturers, but also within a box from the same manufacturer. Successful printing on envelopes depends upon the quality of the envelopes. When selecting envelopes, consider the following components:

  • Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should not exceed 90 g/m2 (24 lb) or jamming might occur.

  • Construction: Before printing, envelopes should lie flat with less than 6 mm (0.25 inch) curl, and should not contain air.

  • Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled, nicked, stuck together, or otherwise damaged.

    Never use envelopes that have clasps, snaps, windows, coated linings, self-stick adhesives, or other synthetic materials.

  • Temperature: Use envelopes that are compatible with the heat and pressure of the printer. This printer's fusing temperature is 210°C (410°F).

  • Size: Use only envelopes that are within the following size ranges.

Tray
Minimum
Maximum
Tray 1 or Tray 2
76 x 127 mm (3 x 5 inches)
216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14 inches)

Envelopes with double side-seams

Double side-seam construction has vertical seams at both ends of the envelope rather than diagonal seams. This style might be more likely to wrinkle. Be sure the seam extends all the way to the corner of the envelope as indicated in the following illustration.

1 - Acceptable
2 - Unacceptable

Envelopes with adhesive strips or flaps

Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives that are compatible with the heat and pressure in the printer. The extra flaps and strips might cause wrinkling, creasing, or even jams and might damage the fuser.

Failure to follow the guidelines above can result in jams.

Labels

Select the type of label that you are using from the Print dialog box or the printer driver.

To avoid damaging the printer, use only labels that are recommended for laser printers. To prevent serious jams, always use Tray 1 or Tray 2 to print on labels. Never print on the same sheet of labels more than once or print on a partial sheet of labels.

When selecting labels, consider the quality of each component:

  • Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at 210°C (410°F), which is the printer fusing temperature.

  • Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing between them. Labels can peel off sheets with spaces between the labels, causing serious jams.

  • Curl: Before printing, labels must lie flat with no more than 13 mm (0.5 inch) of curl in any direction.

  • Condition: Do not use labels that have wrinkles, bubbles, other indications of separation, or are damaged in any way.

Transparencies

  • Use only Tray 1 or Tray 2 to print on transparencies. Select Transparencies from the Print dialog box or the printer driver.

  • The printer supports printing on color transparencies. Use only transparencies that are recommended for use in laser printers.

  • Place transparencies on a flat surface after removing them from the printer.

  • Transparencies that are used in the printer must be able to withstand 210°C (410°F), which is the printer fusing temperature.

To avoid damage to the printer, use only transparencies that are recommended for use in laser printers.

Transparent print media that is not designed for LaserJet printing will melt in the printer, and will damage the printer.

HP LaserJet glossy paper and HP LaserJet Photo paper

  • Handle HP LaserJet glossy paper and HP LaserJet Photo paper by the edges. Oil from your fingers that is deposited on HP LaserJet glossy paper and HP LaserJet Photo paper can cause print-quality problems.

  • Use only HP LaserJet glossy paper and HP LaserJet Photo paper with this printer. HP products are designed to work together for optimum printing results.

Letterhead or preprinted forms

  • Avoid using raised or embossed letterhead.

  • Avoid using letterhead that is printed with low-temperature inks, such as those used in some types of thermography.

  • The printer uses heat and pressure to fuse toner to the print media. Make sure that any colored paper or preprinted forms use inks that are compatible with this fusing temperature 210°C (410°F) for 0.1 second.

HP LaserJet Tough paper

When printing on HP LaserJet Tough paper, follow these guidelines:

  • Handle HP LaserJet Tough paper by the edges. Oil from your fingers that is deposited on HP LaserJet Tough paper can cause print-quality problems.

  • Use only HP LaserJet Tough paper with this printer. HP products are designed to work together for optimum printing results.

Custom-sized print media or cardstock

  • Postcards, 3 x 5-inch (index) cards, and other custom-sized print media can be printed on from Tray 1, Tray 2, or optional Tray 3. The minimum size is 76 x 127 mm (3 x 5 inches) and the maximum size is 216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14 inches).

  • Always insert the short edge first into Tray 1, Tray 2, or optional Tray 3. To print in landscape mode, make this selection through your program. Inserting the media long-edge-first might cause a jam.

  • In your program, set margins at least 6.4 mm (0.25 inch) away from the edges of the print media.
