Tips on using labels

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

Note:  Use only paper label sheets. Vinyl, pharmacy, and two‑sided labels are not supported.

For more information on label printing, characteristics, and design, see the Card Stock & Label Guide available at

When printing on labels:

  • Use labels designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to verify that:
    • The labels can withstand temperatures up to 240°C (464°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.
    • Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats can withstand up to 172‑kPa (25‑psi) 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 toner cartridge warranties.
  • Do not use labels with exposed adhesive.
  • Do not print within 1  mm (0.04  inch) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die‑cuts of the label.
  • Make sure the adhesive backing does not reach to the edge of the sheet. Zone coating of the adhesive should be at least 1  mm (0.04  inch) away from edges. Adhesive material contaminates the printer and could void the warranty.
  • If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, then remove a 2‑mm (0.08‑inch) strip on the leading and driver edge, and then use a non‑oozing adhesive.
  • Portrait orientation is recommended, especially when printing bar codes.
