! Types of Paper to Avoid


• Extremely smooth or shiny paper or paper that is highly textured
• Acid paper
• Letterhead imprinted with low temperature or thermography. These materials may transfer onto the
fuser unit’s roller and cause damage. Any pre-printed paper should use inks compatible with 200°C
(392°F) for 0.1 second.
• Damaged or wrinkled paper, or paper with irregularities such as tabs, staples, etc.
• Multipart forms or carbonless paper
• Paper with a cotton and/or fiber content over 25%
• Ink jet media (paper, transparency, etc.) (It may transfer onto the fuser unit’s roller and cause
damage.)

! Transparencies and Labels


You may also print on labels and transparencies that are made for the printer. Panasonic has tested
and found that the following transparencies and labels work satisfactorily.

OHP transparencies: 3M CG3300


Labels: Avery 5160 - Avery 5163, Avery 5660 - Avery 5663
Avery L7159 - Avery L7164

• To avoid damaging the printer, do not use ink jet transparency.


• Transparencies and adhesive material of labels should be stable at 205°C (400°F), the printer’s
maximum temperature.
• Re-using transparencies that have been fed through the printer once (for example, after jams or if the
transparency is ejected without being printed) can reduce the life of the consumables and/or paper
path components.
• When using transparencies, if the print quality is poor, print on the other side.

NOTE:
• With any label stock, the labels must completely cover the backing material (see figure below).

! Envelope Specifications
It is recommended that you purchase only high quality envelopes as shown in the diagram below:

High quality envelopes have the following characteristics:


• A thin, sharply creased leading edge
• Paper weight of 90 g/m2 (24 lb.)
• Flat, free of curls, wrinkles, nicks, etc.

NOTE:
• Slight “wrinkling” may occur during printing even if high quality envelopes are used. To maximize
performance and print quality, avoid printing on the folded portions and areas around the flap of the
envelope.

The following illustrates the recommended printable area when printing on envelopes.

It is not recommended that you use envelopes with any of the following characteristics (using these
may result in paper jams):

• Irregularly shaped envelopes


• Envelopes with curls, wrinkles, nicks, twists, dog-ears or other damage
• Envelopes with diamond cross construction
• Highly textured envelopes, or with extremely shiny surfaces
• Envelopes that seal by removing a peel-off strip
• Envelopes with more than one flap to be sealed
• Envelopes with opening on the shorter edge cannot be used.
• Envelopes that are baggy or not sharply creased
• Embossed envelopes
• Envelopes that have previously been printed with a laser printer
• Envelopes that have been previously printed inside

Specifications

Do not attempt to print on any of the following types of envelopes. These may cause damage to your
printer.

• Envelopes with clasps, snaps or tie strings (see Figure 1)


• Envelopes with transparent windows (see Figure 2)
• Envelopes that will melt, discolour, scorch, offset or release hazardous emissions when exposed to
200°C (392°F) for 0.1 second
• Envelopes that use encapsulated types of adhesive that do not require moistening but rely on
pressure to seal them

Figure 1 Figure 2

Always test a sample of the envelopes you are thinking of buying. Confirm that the envelope performs
acceptably.

For best printing results


• Avoid printing in high humidity i.e., above 70%RH.
High humidity may cause the envelope to curl and pick up excess toner.
High humidity may also cause the envelope to seal.
• Envelope storage is very important. Store them away from moisture and humid air, where they can lay
flat and their edges won’t be bent or damaged. The humidity should not exceed 70 % RH.
