Tips for selecting and using paper
For the best results, observe the following guidelines.
Load only one type of paper at a time into a tray or automatic document feeder (ADF).
When loading the trays and ADF, make sure the paper is loaded correctly.
Do not overload the tray or ADF.
To prevent jams, poor print quality, and other printing problems, avoid loading the following
paper in the trays or ADF:
Paper that is damaged, curled, or wrinkled
Paper with cutouts or perforations
Paper that is heavily textured, embossed, or does not accept ink well
Paper that is too lightweight or stretches easily
Paper that contains staples or clips
For more information on loading paper, see Load paper on page 23 or Load an original in the
document feeder on page 28.
