Configuring Universal paper settings

    The Universal paper size is a user‑defined setting that lets you print on paper sizes that are not preset in the printer menus.


    • The smallest supported Universal size is 70  x  127  mm  (2.76  x  5  inches) for one‑sided printing and 105  x  148  mm  (4.13  x  5.83  inches) for two‑sided (duplex) printing.
    • The largest supported Universal size is 216  x 356  mm  (8.5  x  14  inches) for one‑sided and two‑sided printing.
    • When printing on paper less than 210  mm (8.3  inches) wide, the printer may print at a reduced speed after a period of time to ensure the best print performance.
    • If you regularly print large jobs on narrow paper, then you may use the MS710 Series printer models, which print batches of 10 or more pages of narrow paper at a faster speed. For more information on the MS710 Series printer models, contact your Lexmark sales representative.
