CAUTION
In general, do not use paper that is heavier than the media specification
recommended for this printer. Doing so can cause misfeeds, paper jams, reduced print quality,
and excessive mechanical wear. However, some heavier media, such as HP Cover Stock, can
be safely used.
HP LaserJet Tough paper
Use only HP LaserJet Tough paper with this printer. HP products are designed to work together
for optimum printing results.
Handle HP LaserJet Tough paper using the edges. Oils from your fingers deposited on HP LaserJet
Tough paper can cause print quality problems.
In either the software application or the printer driver, select
Tough Paper
as the media type, or
print from a tray that is configured for HP LaserJet Tough paper.
CAUTION
Transparent media that are not designed for LaserJet printing will melt in the printer,
causing damage to the printer.
Preprinted forms and letterhead
Forms and letterhead must be printed with heat-resistant inks that will not melt, vaporize, or release
hazardous emissions when subjected to the printer’s fusing temperature of approximately 190° C
(374° F) or 0.1 second.
Inks must be nonflammable and should not adversely affect any printer rollers.
Forms and letterhead should be sealed in a moisture-proof wrapping to prevent changes during
storage.
Before loading preprinted paper, verify that the ink on the paper is dry. During the fusing process,
wet ink can come off of preprinted paper.
When 2-sided (duplex) printing, load preprinted forms and letterhead into tray 2 and tray 3 face-
down with the top edge at the back of the tray. To load preprinted forms and letterhead into tray 1,
load them face-up with the bottom edge feeding in first.
When 1-sided (simplex) printing, load preprinted forms and letterhead into tray 2 or tray 3 face-up
with the top edge of the page at the front of the tray. To load preprinted forms and letterhead into
tray 1, place them in the tray with the side to be printed face-down with the bottom edge feeding
in first.
Recycled paper
This printer supports the use of recycled paper. Recycled paper must meet the same specifications as
standard paper. See the
HP LaserJet Printer Family Print Media Specification Guide
. Hewlett-Packard
recommends that recycled paper contain no more than 5 percent ground wood.
