Selecting the Correct Paper Type


Your printer automatically adjusts itself for the type of paper you select in your print settings. That's why the paper Type or Media Type setting is so important. It tells your printer what kind of paper you're using and adjusts the ink coverage accordingly.

The table below lists the settings you should choose for your paper:
