Printable Area

The shaded areas in the image below indicate the printable area of the document.
IMPORTANT
Do not use the following types of paper:
  • Wrinkled or creased paper
  • Curled or rolled paper
  • Torn paper
  • Damp paper
  • Very thin paper
  • Paper printed by a thermal transfer printer
  • Highly textured paper
  • Glossy paper
Paper handling and storage
  • Store the paper on a flat surface.
  • Keep the paper wrapped in its original package to protect the paper from moisture or dryness.
  • Do not store the paper in such a way that may cause it to curl or fold.
  • Do not store the paper vertically or stack too much paper.
  • Do not store the paper in direct sunlight, or in a place subject to high humidity, dryness, or drastic changes in temperature or humidity.

NOTE
When printing on paper that has absorbed moisture
  • Steam may emit from the paper output area, or water droplets may form on the back side of the operation panel or around the paper output area. There is nothing unusual about any of these occurrences, which occur when the heat generated from fixing toner on the paper causes moisture in the paper to evaporate (most likely to occur at low room temperatures).
