Loading Paper

You can load the paper into the paper drawer or multi-purpose tray. Load the paper you usually use into the paper drawer. The paper drawer is convenient when using large amounts of paper. Use the multi-purpose tray when you temporarily use a size or type of paper that is not loaded in the paper drawer. See Available Paper for available paper sizes and types.

Precautions for Paper

Do not use the following types of paper:
A paper jam or printing error may occur.

Notes on use of paper
Only use paper that has fully acclimatized to the environment in which the machine is installed. Using paper that has been stored under different temperature or humidity conditions may cause paper jams or result in poor print quality.
Paper handling and storage
It is recommended that you use paper as soon as possible after unwrapping. Paper remaining unused should be covered with the original wrapping paper and stored 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 do not 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).

Storing the Paper Printed with the Machine

When handling/storing the paper printed with the machine, take the following precautions.

How to Store the Printed Paper

Store on a flat surface.
Do not store together with articles made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) such as clear folders. Toner may melt, resulting in the paper's sticking to PVC articles.
Take care that the paper does not get folded or creased. Toner may peel off.
To store over a long period of time (two years or longer), store in binders or equivalent.
When the paper is stored over a long period of time, it may become discolored and thus the print may seem to have undergone a change of color.
Do not store in a place where the temperature is high.

Precautions When Applying Adhesive

Always use insoluble adhesive.
Before applying adhesive, perform a test using a printout no longer required.
When putting adhesive-applied paper sheets one over another, make sure that the adhesive is completely dried out.
