Print Media Requirements

For high-quality copies, we recommend using paper and transparencies recommended by Canon. Some types of paper available at office supply stores may not be suitable for this machine.

Paper Storage
In order to prevent paper jams, follow this procedure below:

  • To prevent moisture buildup, store remaining paper wrapped tightly in its original package. Store paper in a dry location, out of direct sunlight.
  • To prevent curling, store paper flat, not upright.
  • If the paper is curled, uncurl it before loading it in the cassette or multi-purpose feeder. Failure to do so will cause paper creases and a paper jam.

Unacceptable Paper
Do not copy on the following types of copy stock. Doing so may result in paper jams.

  • Severely curled or wrinkled paper.
  • Transparencies designed for full-color copiers or printers.
  • Paper which has already been copied using a digital full-color copier (Do not copy on the reverse side.)
  • Paper which has been printed on using a thermal transfer printer. (Do not copy on the reverse side.)

Never attempt to make copies on full-color transparencies. Doing so may result in product malfunction.
