Tips for selecting and using print media
Paper that is too thin, has a slick texture, or “stretches” easily can feed improperly through
the printer's paper path.
Paper that is heavily textured or does not accept ink well can cause poorly filled graphics
To ensure that media feeds properly, load only one type of media at a time in the input tray
or the manual feed slots.
Do not use media that is damaged, curled, or wrinkled. It is recommended not to use
paper with cutouts or perforations or paper that is heavily textured or embossed.
Try to use a paper type that has previously worked well with your printer.
If you are printing more than one page on transparencies, photo paper, or other special
paper, the printing pauses and the Resume light blinks after each page is printed. This
allows the printed page to dry before printing the next page. You can press the Resume
button if you do not want to wait for the printed page to dry before printing the following
page; however, it is recommended to allow each page to dry.
Use HP media for optimum print quality. These print media types are specifically designed to
