Printing on special media
Use these guidelines when printing on special types of media.
Transparencies
Handle transparencies using the edges. Oils from your fingers deposited on the transparency can
cause print quality problems.
Use only overhead transparencies recommended for use in this printer. Hewlett-Packard
recommends using HP Color LaserJet Transparencies with this printer. HP products are designed
to work together for optimum printing results.
In either the software program or the printer driver, select
TRANSPARENCY
as the media type,
or print from a tray that is configured for transparencies.
CAUTION
Transparencies not designed for LaserJet printing will melt in the printer, causing
damage to the printer. Do not use transparencies designed for monochrome printing.
Glossy paper
In either the software application or the driver, select
GLOSSY
as the media type, or print from a
tray that is configured for glossy paper.
HP Color LaserJet 3600 and 3800 Series printers
: Select
GLOSSY
for media weights up
to 120 g/m
2
(32 lb bond). Select
Heavy Glossy
for media weights up to 163 g/m
2
(43 lb bond).
Select
Extra Heavy Glossy
for media weights up to
176
g/m
2
(
47
lb bond).
HP Color LaserJet 3000 Series printer
: Select
GLOSSY
for media weights up to 120 g/m
2
(32 lb bond).
Because this affects all print jobs, it is important to return the printer to its original settings once the
job has printed. See
Configuring trays
for more information.
NOTE
Hewlett-Packard recommends using HP Color LaserJet Soft Gloss paper with this
printer. HP products are designed to work together for optimum printing results. If HP Color
LaserJet Soft Gloss paper is not used with this printer, print quality may be compromised.
Colored paper
Colored paper should be of the same high quality as white xerographic paper.
Pigments used must be able to withstand the printer’s fusing temperature of 190° C (374° F) for
0.1 second without deterioration.
Do not use paper with a colored coating that was added after the paper was produced.
The printer creates colors by printing patterns of dots, overlaying and varying their spacing to
produce various colors. Varying the shade or color of the paper will affect the shades of the printed
colors.
