Type and size
Paper and print media
Printing by type or size means that you want the product to pull from the tray that is loaded with the correct type and size of paper. Selecting paper by type rather than source is similar to locking out trays and helps protect special paper from accidental use. For example, if a tray is configured for letterhead and you select plain paper, the product will not pull the letterhead from that tray. Instead, it will pull from a tray that is loaded with plain paper and is configured for plain paper on the product control panel.
Selecting paper by type and size results in significantly better print quality for most paper types. Using the wrong setting might result in unsatisfactory print quality. Always print by type for special print media, such as labels or transparencies. Print by size for envelopes, if possible.
