This article explains how to specify the type of paper loaded in the imagePROGRAF TC-20 / TC-20M.


Follow these steps to change the type of paper specified on the printer after you have loaded paper.

 If you want to continue using the same type of roll paper, set Keep roll paper type to Enable. The previously selected paper type is automatically selected, saving you the trouble of selecting the paper type when loading the roll paper.

 For best printing results, the printer fine-tunes the print head height and the feed amount for each type of paper. Be sure to select the type of paper to use correctly before printing.

  1. Select paper settings display area on the Home Screen.
