Selected FAQ

Q:
How do you select the correct media type?
A:
Your printer automatically adjusts itself for the type of paper you select in your printer software. That's why the Media Type setting is so important. It tells your printer what kind of paper you're using and adjusts the ink coverage accordingly.

Before you print, always check your Media Type setting. Here are the settings you should choose for your paper:
