Paper Information


Loading Paper in the Rear Tray

You can load plain paper or photo paper.

You can also load envelopes on the rear tray.

  • If you cut plain paper to a size of 5" x 7" (13 x 18 cm) or smaller to perform a trial print, it may cause a paper jam.


  • 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.


    • When using Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss SG-201, even if the sheet is curled, load one sheet at a time as it is. If you roll up this paper to flatten, this may cause cracks on the surface of the paper and reduce the print quality.

  2. Open paper support (A) and pull out paper support extension (B).

  3. Open the feed slot cover (C).

  4. Slide right paper guide (D) to open both paper guides.

  5. Load paper stack in portrait orientation WITH PRINT SIDE FACING UP.

  6. Slide right paper guide (D) to align with both sides of paper stack.

    Do not slide the paper guides too hard against the paper. The paper may not be fed properly.


    • Always load paper in portrait orientation (E). Loading paper in landscape orientation (F) can cause paper jams.


    • Do not load sheets of paper higher than the load limit mark (G).

  7. Close feed slot cover (C) gently.


    • If the feed slot cover is open, paper cannot be fed. Be sure to close the feed slot cover.

    After closing the feed slot cover, the paper information registration screen for the rear tray appears on the LCD.

  8. Press the OK button.

  9. Use the left right button to select the size of the loaded paper on the rear tray, then press the OK button.


    • The  (asterisk) on the LCD indicates the current setting.

  10. Use the left right button to select the type of the loaded paper on the rear tray, then press the OK button.

    Follow the instructions of any messages displayed to register the paper information.

  11. Pull out paper output tray (H) and extend paper output support (I).

    Be sure to pull out the paper output tray before printing. If not, printing will not start.


  • There are various types of paper, such as paper with a special surface coating for printing photos at optimal quality and paper suitable for documents. Each media type has specific preset settings (how ink is used and sprayed, distance from nozzles, etc.), that allow you to print to that type with optimal image quality. The wrong paper settings may cause poor printout color quality or scratches on the printed surface. If you notice blurring or uneven colors, increase the print quality setting and try printing again.

  • To prevent incorrect printing, this printer has a function that detects whether the settings for the paper loaded on the rear tray matches the paper settings. Before printing, make print settings in accordance with the paper settings. When this function is enabled, an error message is displayed if these settings do not match to prevent incorrect printing. When this error message is displayed, check and correct the paper settings.
