Using Special Media

Loading capacities for Epson special media
Storing Epson Photo Paper

You can achieve good results with most types of plain bond paper. However, coated paper and glossy film provide superior printouts because they absorb less ink.

Epson provides special media that are formulated for the ink used in this product. Epson recommends using media distributed by Epson to ensure high-quality results.
See Loading capacities for Epson special media for a complete list of these products.

When loading special media distributed by Epson, read the instruction sheets packed with the media first and keep the following points in mind.

Caution:
Cleaning sheets packaged with Epson special media should not be used with this product. The cleaning function performed by these sheets is not needed with this product and they may jam in this product if used.

Note:
  • Load the media into the sheet feeder printable side up. See the instruction sheets packed with the media to determine which side is the printable side. Some types of media have cut corners to help identify the correct loading direction, as shown in the illustration.

  • If the paper is curled, flatten it or curl it slightly in the opposite direction before loading. Printing on curled paper may cause ink to smear on your printout.
