HP Color LaserJet 3000, 3600 and 3800 Series Printers - Print Media Specifications

Supported media types
  note:
For optimum results, HP recommends the use of HP media designed for color LaserJet printers between the weights of 75 g/m2 to 120 g/m2. For lighter weight or heavier weight paper (60 g/m2 - 74 g/m2 and 121 - 220 g/m2), paper jam rate and optimal print quality performance may be impacted. Use the correct driver and tray settings for best results. Test all paper before purchasing large volumes.
Also for optimum results, use conventional 75 g/m2 to 90 g/sm2 (20 to 24 lb) photocopy paper. Verify that the paper is of good quality and is free of cuts, nicks, tears, spots, loose particles, dust, wrinkles, curls, or bent edges.
