Printing on specialty media

Tips on using letterhead

Use letterhead designed specifically for laser printers.

Print samples on the letterhead being considered for use before buying large quantities.

Before loading letterhead, fan the stack to prevent sheets from sticking together.

Printing

86

Page orientation is important when printing on letterhead. For information on how to load letterhead, see:

“Loading the standard or optional 250 sheet or 550 sheet tray” on page 65

“Loading the 2000 sheet tray” on page 68

“Loading the multipurpose feeder” on page 72

Tips on using transparencies

Print samples on the transparencies being considered for use before buying large quantities.

When printing on transparencies:

Feed transparencies from a 250 sheet tray, a 550 sheet tray, or the multipurpose feeder.

Use transparencies designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to ensure transparencies are able to withstand temperatures up to 230°C (446°F) without melting, discoloring, offsetting, or releasing hazardous emissions.

Use transparencies that are 138–146g/m2 (37–39lb. bond) in weight.

To prevent print quality problems, avoid getting fingerprints on the transparencies.

Before loading transparencies, fan the stack to prevent sheets from sticking together.

We recommend Lexmark part number 12A5010 for A4 size transparencies and Lexmark part number 70X7240 for letter size transparencies.

Tips on using envelopes

Print samples on the envelopes being considered for use before buying large quantities.

When printing on envelopes:

Feed envelopes from the multipurpose feeder or the optional envelope feeder.

Set the Paper Type to Envelope, and select the envelope size.

Use envelopes designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to ensure the envelopes can withstand temperatures up to 230°C (446°F) without sealing, wrinkling, curling excessively, or releasing hazardous emissions.

For the best performance, use envelopes made from 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond) paper. Use up to 105 g/m2 (28 lb bond) weight for envelopes as long as the cotton content is 25% or less. All cotton envelopes must not exceed 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond) weight.

Use only new envelopes.

To optimize performance and minimize jams, do not use envelopes that:

Have excessive curl or twist

Are stuck together or damaged in any way

Have windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, or embossing

Have metal clasps, string ties, or folding bars

Have an interlocking design

Have postage stamps attached

Have any exposed adhesive when the flap is in the sealed or closed position

Printing

87

Have bent corners

Have rough, cockle, or laid finishes

Adjust the width guide to fit the width of the envelopes.

Note: A combination of high humidity (over 60%) and the high printing temperature may wrinkle or seal envelopes.

Tips on using labels

Print samples on the labels being considered for use before buying large quantities.

Notes:

Paper, dual web paper, polyester, and vinyl labels are supported.

When using the duplex unit, specially designed, integrated, and dual web paper labels are supported.

Printing labels requires a special label fuser cleaner which is included with the special cartridge required for label applications. For more information, see “Ordering supplies” on page 246.

For more information on label printing, characteristics, and design, see the Card Stock & Label Guide athttp://support.lexmark.com.

When printing on labels:

Feed labels from a 250 sheet tray, a 550 sheet tray, or the multipurpose feeder.

Use labels designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to verify that:

The labels can withstand temperatures up to 230°C (446°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.

Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats can withstand up to 25 psi (172 kPa) pressure without delaminating, oozing around the edges, or releasing hazardous fumes.

Do not use labels with slick backing material.

Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets also contaminate the printer and the cartridge with adhesive, and could void the printer and cartridge warranties.

Do not use labels with exposed adhesive.

Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 in.) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die cuts of the label.

Be sure adhesive backing does not reach to the sheet edge. Zone coating of the adhesive at least 1 mm (0.04 in.) away from edges is recommended. Adhesive material contaminates the printer and could void the warranty.

If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, remove a 1.6 mm (0.06 in.) strip on the leading and driver edge, and use a non oozing adhesive.

Portrait orientation works best, especially when printing bar codes.

Tips on using card stock

Card stock is heavy, single ply specialty media. Many of its variable characteristics, such as moisture content, thickness, and texture, can significantly impact print quality. Print samples on the card stock being considered for use before buying large quantities.

When printing on card stock:

Feed card stock from a 250 sheet tray, a 550 sheet tray, or the multipurpose feeder.

Make sure the Paper Type is Card Stock.

Select the appropriate Paper Texture setting.

Printing

88

Be aware that preprinting, perforation, and creasing may significantly affect the print quality and cause jams or other paper handling problems.

Check with the manufacturer or vendor to ensure the card stock can withstand temperatures up to 230°C (446°F) without releasing hazardous emissions.

Do not use preprinted card stock manufactured with chemicals that may contaminate the printer. Preprinting introduces semi liquid and volatile components into the printer.

Use grain short card stock when possible.

Printing confidential and other held jobs

Holding jobs in the printer

When sending a job to the printer, you can specify that you want the printer to hold the job in memory until you start the job from the printer control panel. All print jobs that can be initiated by the user at the printer are called held jobs.

Note: Confidential, Verify, Reserve, and Repeat print jobs may be deleted if the printer requires extra memory to process additional held jobs.

 

Job type

Description

 

 

 

 

Confidential

When you send a Confidential print job to the printer, you must create a PIN from

 

 

the computer. The PIN must be four digits using the numbers 0–9.The job is held

 

 

in printer memory until you enter the PIN from the printer control panel and

 

 

choose to print or delete the job.

 

 

 

 

Verify

When you send a Verify print job, the printer prints one copy and holds the

 

 

remaining copies in printer memory. Verify lets you examine the first copy to see

 

 

if it is satisfactory before printing the remaining copies. Once all copies are printed,

 

 

the job is automatically deleted from printer memory.

 

 

 

 

Reserve

When you send a Reserve print job, the printer does not print the job immediately.

 

 

It stores the job in memory so you can print the job later. The job is held in memory

 

 

until you delete it from the Held Jobs menu.

 

 

 

 

Repeat

When you send a Repeat print job, the printer prints all requested copies of the

 

 

job and stores the job in memory so you can print additional copies later. You can

 

 

print additional copies as long as the job remains stored in memory.

 

 

 

Other types of held jobs include:

Profiles from various sources including Lexmark Document Solutions Suite (LDSS)

Forms from a kiosk

Bookmarks

Jobs not printed, which are called parked jobs

Creating a custom job (job build)

The custom job or job build is used to combine one or more sets of original documents into a single copy job. Each set may be scanned using different job parameters. When a copy job is submitted and Custom Job is enabled, the scanner scans the first set of original documents using the supplied parameters, and then it scans the next set with the same or different parameters.

The definition of a set depends on the scan source:

If you scan a document on the scanner glass, a set consists of one page.

If you scan multiple pages using the ADF, a set consists of all scanned pages until the ADF becomes empty.

If you scan one page using the ADF, a set consists of one page.

For example:

1 Load an original document faceup, short edge first into the ADF or facedown on the scanner glass.

Note: Do not load postcards, photos, small items, transparencies, photo paper, or thin media (such as magazine clippings) into the ADF. Place these items on the scanner glass.

2If you are loading a document into the ADF, then adjust the paper guides.
