    Note: If you are using legal-size or longer paper, do not open the paper stopper.
  2. Open the rear paper feed slot and push it back.

  3. Hold one sheet of paper with the printable side faceup and slide the edge guides against the paper, but not too tightly.

    Note: Load envelopes short edge first, with the flap facing down and to the right.

Always follow these paper loading guidelines:
Note: You can load a sheet of binder paper with holes in the rear feed slot, but only for one-sided printing from your computer.
