Samsung Xpress MFP SL-M2885 - Printing on Special Paper

The following table below shows the special paper usable in each tray.
The paper setting in the printer and driver must match to print without a paper mismatch error.
To change the paper setting set in the printer, from the Samsung Easy Printer Manager select (Switch to advanced mode) > Device Settings.
If the printer supports a display screen, it can be set by using the (Menu) button on the control panel.
Set the paper type from the Printing preferences window > Paper tab > Paper Type, see Opening printing preferences.
For example, to print on labels, select Labels for Paper Type.
  note:
  • When using special paper, HP recommends feeding one piece of paper at a time. Check the maximum input number of paper for each tray, see Print paper specifications.
  • Printing the special paper (Face up)
    • If special paper is printed out with curl, wrinkles, crease, or black bold lines, open the rear cover and try printing again. Keep the rear cover opened during printing.

Envelope
Printing successfully on envelopes depends upon the quality of the envelopes. To print an envelope, place it as shown in the following figure:
Figure : Envelope feed
If envelopes are printed out with wrinkles, creases, or black bold lines, open the rear cover and try printing again. Keep the rear cover opened during printing.
  • When selecting envelopes, consider the following factors:
    • Weight: Does not exceed 90 g/m2 otherwise, jams might occur.
    • Construction: Must lie flat with less than 6 mm curl and should not contain air.
    • Condition: Is not wrinkled, nicked, nor damaged.
    • Temperature: Must resist the heat and pressure of the printer during operation.
  • Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp and well-creased folds.
  • Do not use stamped envelopes.
  • Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows, coated lining, self-adhesive seals, or other synthetic materials.
  • Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.
  • Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope extends all the way to the corner of the envelope.
      Figure : Seams
    1. Acceptable
    2. Unacceptable
  • Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with more than one flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives compatible with the printer’s fusing temperature for 0.1 second about 170°C (338 °F). The extra flaps and strips might cause wrinkling, creasing, or jams, and might even damage the fuser unit.
  • For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15 mm from the edges of the envelope.
  • Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s seams meet.
Transparency
To avoid damaging the printer, use only transparencies designed for use in laser printers.
Figure : Transparency
  • Must withstand the printer’s fusing temperature.
  • Place them on a flat surface after removing them from the printer.
  • Do not leave unused transparencies in the paper tray for long. Dust and dirt might accumulate on them, resulting in spotty printing.
  • To avoid smudging caused by fingerprints, handle them carefully.
  • To avoid fading, do not expose printed transparencies to prolonged sunlight.
  • Make sure that transparencies are not wrinkled, curled, or have any torn edges.
  • Do not use transparencies that separate from the backing sheet.
  • To prevent transparencies from sticking to each other, do not let the printed sheets stack up as they are being printed out.
  • Recommended transparency: Transparency for a color laser printer by Xerox, such as 3R 91331(A4), 3R 2780 (Letter).
Labels
To avoid damaging the printer, use only labels designed for use in laser printers.
Figure : Labels
  • When selecting labels, consider the following factors:
    • Adhesives: Must be stable at the printer’s fusing temperature. Check the printer’s specifications to view the fusing temperature (about 170°C (338°F)).
    • Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing between them. Labels might peel off sheets that have spaces between the labels, causing serious jams.
    • Curl: Must lie flat with no more than 13 mm of curl in any direction.
    • Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other indications of separation.
  • Make sure that there is no exposed adhesive material between labels. Exposed areas might cause labels to peel off during printing, which might cause paper jams. Exposed adhesive might also cause damage to printer components.
  • Do not run a sheet of labels through the printer more than once. The adhesive backing is designed for only a single pass through the printer.
  • Do not use labels that are separating from the backing sheet or are wrinkled, bubbled, or otherwise damaged.
Card stock and custom-sized paper

  • In the software application, set margins to at least 6.4 mm (0.25 inches) away from the edges of the material.
Preprinted paper
When loading preprinted paper, place the printed side face up with an uncurled edge at the front. When experiencing problems with paper feeding, turn the paper around. Note that print quality is not guaranteed.
Figure : Paper face up
  • Must be printed with heat-resistant ink that will not melt, vaporize, or release hazardous emissions when subjected to the printer’s fusing temperature for 0.1 second (about 170°C (338°F)).
  • Preprinted paper ink must be non-flammable and not adversely affect printer rollers.
  • Before loading preprinted paper, verify that the ink on the paper is dry. During the fusing process, wet ink might come off preprinted paper, reducing print quality.
