Print-media specifications
For optimum results, HP recommends using HP media that is designed for HP Color LaserJet printers.
Use media with a weight between 75 g/m
2
to 120 g/m
2
(20 to 32 lb bond). Although the printer supports
media with weights between 60 g/m
2
to
176
g/m
2
(16 to
47
lb bond), using lighter or heavier media could
impact the paper-jam rate and the optimal print-quality performance.
Always use the correct media-type setting in the printer driver, and configure the trays for the correct
media type. HP recommends testing any paper before buying it in large quantities.
