Understand how to properly load paper


  1. Remove the top cover by sliding it slightly forward and away from the paper output slot. This will release the lid and allow you to remove the top cover to insert paper. Close the lid properly.

  2. Unwrap a photo paper pack (10 sheets). Ensure the included smart sheet (blue) is on the bottom of the pack and barcode is facing down.
  3. Place both the photo paper and smart sheet into the paper compartment.

    Stack the photo paper on top of the smart sheet with the white side (printing side) facing top.


  4. Place the top cover back onto the printer. It should click into place when fastened

Note on Smart sheet

  • The smart sheet will pass through the Mini Photo Printer automatically before the first print job. It cleans and calibrates the printer for the paper pack.
  • Use the smart sheet within each pack of new paper for best printing quality.
