Product media specifications
HP LaserJet printers produce excellent print quality. The printer accepts a variety of media, such
as cut-sheet paper (including recycled paper), envelopes, labels, transparencies, vellum, and
custom-sized paper. Properties such as weight, grain, and moisture content are important factors
affecting printer performance and output quality.
The printer can use a variety of paper and other print media in accordance with the guidelines in
this user guide. Media that does not meet these guidelines might cause the following problems:
Poor print quality
Increased media jams
Premature wear on the printer, requiring repair
For best results, use only HP brand paper and print media. Hewlett-Packard Company cannot
recommend the use of other brands. Because they are not HP products, HP cannot influence or
control their quality.
It is possible for media to meet all of the guidelines in this user guide and still not produce
satisfactory results. This might be the result of improper handling, unacceptable temperature and
humidity levels, or other variables over which Hewlett-Packard has no control.
Before you purchase a large quantity of media, make sure that it meets the requirements specified
in this user guide and in Guidelines for Paper and Other Print Media. (See
Ordering HP parts and
for more information about ordering the guidelines.) Always test media before you
purchase a large quantity.
Using media that does not meet Hewlett-Packard’s specifications might cause problems for the
printer, requiring repair. This repair is not covered by the Hewlett-Packard warranty or service
