Using Special Paper

Always test paper samples before purchasing them to ensure desirable performance.

 

  • DO NOT use inkjet paper; it may cause a paper jam or damage your machine.
  • If you use bond paper, paper with a rough surface, or paper that is wrinkled or creased, the paper may exhibit degraded performance.

Store paper in its original packaging and keep it sealed. Keep the paper flat and away from moisture, direct sunlight and heat.

Some types of paper may not perform well or may cause damage to your machine.
DO NOT use paper:

  • that is highly textured
  • that is extremely smooth or shiny
  • that is curled or warped
  • that is coated or has a chemical finish
  • that is damaged, creased or folded
  • that exceeds the recommended weight specification in this guide
  • with tabs and staples
  • with letterheads using low temperature dyes or thermography
  • that is multipart or carbonless
  • that is designed for inkjet printing

If you use any of the types of paper listed above, they may damage your machine. This damage is not covered under any Brother warranty or service agreement.
