Storing paper

Use these paper storage guidelines to help avoid jams and uneven print quality:

  • Store paper in its original wrapper in the same environment as the printer for 24 to 48 hours before printing.
  • Extend the time several days if the storage or transportation environment is very different from the printer environment. Thick paper may also require a longer conditioning period.
  • For best results, store paper where the temperature is 21°C (70°F) and the relative humidity is 40 percent.
  • Most label manufacturers recommend printing in a temperature range of 18–24°C (65–75°F) with relative humidity between 40 and 60 percent.
  • Store paper in cartons, on a pallet or shelf, rather than on the floor.
  • Store individual packages on a flat surface.
  • Do not store anything on top of individual paper packages.
  • Take paper out of the carton or wrapper only when you are ready to load it in the printer. The carton and wrapper help keep the paper clean, dry, and flat.
