HP Business Inkjet 3000 Series Printer - Media Recommendations

Introduction
This document contains a list of media suggested for use with the printers, including a brief description of the media.
Everyday paper
For everyday printing, the printers work well with most common office paper. Before buying large quantities of paper, print some samples using different paper types to find the best one.
HP business communication paper
Use this paper for everyday color printing. This paper is specially treated to hold ink and is opaque enough to print on both sides of the paper without bleeds or halos. This paper is good for printing newsletters, flyers, color presentations, cover sheets, letterheads, and reports containing graphs and charts.
HP photo paper
This glossy, photo-weight paper makes photos look spectacular. It dries quickly and has an HP-developed coating for photos. It is ideal for framed pictures, sales materials, photo reprints, and enlargements.
Supported media types
The following table lists the types of media that are compatible with the printer and shows which media can be used with the paper trays and accessories on the printer.
  caution:
Some media, such as transparencies and photo paper, can be used with only Tray 1 or Tray 2. Using this media in Tray 3 or the auto-duplex unit can cause jams and might damage the printer.
