Loading Plain Paper / Photo Paper

You can load plain paper or photo paper.


  • If you cut plain paper into small size such as 4" x 6" (10 x 15 cm), 5" x 7" (13 x 18 cm), Square 5" x 5" (13 x 13 cm), or Card 2.17" x 3.58" (55 x 91 mm) to perform trial print, it can cause paper jams.


  • We recommend Canon genuine photo paper for printing photos.

    For details on the Canon genuine paper, see Supported Media Types.

  • You can use general copy paper or Canon Red Label Superior WOP111/Canon Océ Office Colour Paper SAT213.

    For the page size and paper weight you can use for this printer, see Supported Media Types.

  1. Prepare paper.

    Align the edges of paper. If paper is curled, flatten it.


    • Align the edges of paper neatly before loading. Loading paper without aligning the edges may cause paper jams.
    • If paper is curled, hold the curled corners and gently bend them in the opposite direction until the paper becomes completely flat.

      For details on how to flatten curled paper, see Is the paper curled?.
