Loading Preprinted Paper

When you use paper that has been preprinted with a logo, pay attention to the orientation of the paper when loading it in the paper source. Load the paper properly so that printing is performed on the same side as the logo.

This section describes how to load preprinted paper with the proper orientation. For a description of the general procedure for loading paper in the paper drawer or multi-purpose tray, see Basic Paper Loading Method.

This section describes how to load preprinted paper when performing one-sided copying/printing. When performing two-sided copying/printing using preprinted paper, load paper by interpreting that the indications in this section referring to the facing of the paper mean the opposite.
To ensure that pages are printed on the proper side of preprinted paper irrespective of one-sided or two-sided printing, you can use the following setting methods.
By specifying the paper type each time to print: load the paper type registered with "Preprinted Paper" set to <On> in <Paper Type Management Settings>, specify that paper type and then perform the printing.
By specifying the paper source each time to print: load paper in the paper source for which <Switch Feed Method> is set to <Print Side Priority>, specify that paper source and then perform the printing.

Paper drawer: the logo side face down
Paper source other than the paper drawer: the logo side face up
Set <Speed Priority for Copying from Feeder> to <Off> in advance.
