Paper Type Management Settings

You can register and edit detailed information of frequently used paper types as the <Custom Type>.
To register a new paper type, first duplicate the paper type that resembles the new type in order to copy all of the internal operational parameters. This procedure copies the suitable settings to the new paper type from the registered custom paper easily.
You can also improve printing quality and paper feeding trouble by editing the custom paper, depending on the characteristics.
It is necessary to log in as an administrator to register custom paper types or change the settings of registered custom paper types. Logging into the Machine
When you register the custom paper type, you cannot specify the paper source. For more information on registering the paper source, see Specifying Paper Size and Type in the Paper Drawer.
You can import/export the registered custom paper type information, and share it with another Canon machine. Importing/Exporting the Settings Individually

Items that can be specified

If you select a finishing type which is different from that of the loaded paper, paper jams may occur, and the quality of the image may be adversely affected.

You can set this mode to <On> to use preprinted paper (paper which has logos already printed on it), such as a letterhead.
The custom paper type with <On> set for <Use as Template Paper> is not automatically selected in the following cases.
When the paper type for printing is set to <Auto>
If <Paper Drawer Auto Selection On/Off> is set to <On> and <Consider Paper Type> is set to <Off> when copying
Methods for loading paper if <Use as Template Paper> is set to <On>:
Paper drawer of the main unit: the side with a logo facing down
Paper source other than a paper drawer of the main unit: the side with a logo facing up

2nd Side of 2-Sided Page

You can set whether the back side of the custom paper type is previously printed or not. If the back side of the paper is not previously printed, select <Off>.

Adjust Image Position

This setting enables you to adjust the image location, by checking whether the register marks on the test print align with the image at the leading edge toward the feeding direction of the test print paper.

Adjust Creep Correction

If you want to change the creep (displacement) correction for each page in a booklet, adjust the creep correction width for the registered custom paper type.
For information on creep (displacement), see Making Booklets (Booklet Copying).
The value you set here becomes the default correction width when the selected paper type is used for saddle stitching with automatic "Adjust Creep (Displacement) Correction".

Adjust Gloss

This mode enables you to adjust the glossiness of the custom paper type. You can change the glossiness of a printed image when using plain or coated paper by adjusting the temperature of the fixing unit. Press <+> to increase the gloss, and press <-> to decrease the gloss.
Depending on the paper, if the value in this mode is increased, a paper jam may occur. If the value is decreased, the quality of the image could be adversely affected or toner may not be applied properly to the image.
Make sure to change the value in small increments as changing the value abruptly may cause some troubles.

Adjust Secondary Transfer Voltage

You can adjust the Secondary Transfer Voltage (the voltage that transfers toner to the paper) when image blurring occurs. Adjusting the Secondary Transfer Voltage

Toner Amount Reduction Mode

You can adjust the total amount of toner used for each paper type.
If this mode is set to <On>, you may be able to reduce issues with certain types of paper, such as image quality problems due to uneven glossiness, as well as feeding problems and poor toner fixing.
Depending on the paper type, if the total amount of toner usage is reduced, density and glossiness may change.
