HELPFUL GUIDELINES for PAPER USAGE

  • Do Not Stack Materials such as Designer Gold, Designer Silver, Super Color Gloss, Super Color Photo, Super Color Photo Cards, Super Color Shrink. Feed into printer one sheet at a time.
  • Prior to use, paper should be allowed to acclimate at least 48 Hours in the environment in which it will be used. Optimum storage facility would retain temperatures between 70-80 degrees F with 50% relative humidity.
  • Before loading paper, fan the sheets on all four sides. This creates a small layer of air between the sheets which should help printer feeding mechanisms.
  • Load Materials according to the instructions in the printer owner's manual. Recommended feeding is generally to use the manual feed tray, or the straightest path through the printer.
