Precautions Regarding Paper

Do not use the following types of paper
Doing so may cause a paper jam or other printing problems.
Wrinkled or creased paper
Curled or rolled paper
Torn paper
Damp paper
Very thin paper
Thin straw paper
Paper printed by a thermal transfer printer
The reverse side of paper which has been printed by a thermal transfer printer
Highly textured paper
Glossy paper
When using paper
Only use paper that has fully acclimatized to the environment in which this machine is installed. Using paper that has been stored under different temperature or humidity may cause paper jams or result in poor print quality.
Paper handling and storage
We recommend using the paper immediately after opening the package. Rewrap any remaining paper in its original package, and store it on a flat surface.
Keep the paper wrapped in its original package to protect the paper from moisture or dryness.
Do not store the paper in such a way that may cause it to curl or fold.
Do not store the paper vertically or stack too much paper.
Do not store the paper in direct sunlight, or in a place subject to high humidity, dryness, or drastic changes in temperature or humidity.
When printing on paper that has absorbed moisture
Steam may emit from the paper output area, or water droplets may form around the paper output area. There is nothing unusual about any of these occurrences, which occur when the heat generated from fixing toner on the paper causes moisture in the paper to evaporate (most likely to occur at low room temperatures).
