HP OFFICEJET PRO X476 AND X576 MFP SERIES - Understand paper use

Understand paper use
HP Officejet inks for business are specifically developed for use with HP printheads. Unique ink formulations help extend the life of the printheads and enhance reliability. When used with ColorLok® paper, these inks provide laser-like color output that dries quickly and is ready for distribution.
This product supports a variety of paper and other print media. Paper or print media that does not meet the following guidelines might cause poor print quality, increased jams, and premature wear on the product.
It is possible for paper to meet all of these guidelines and still not produce satisfactory results. This might be the result of improper handling, unacceptable temperature and/or humidity levels, or other variables over which Hewlett-Packard has no control.
  caution:
Using paper or print media that does not meet Hewlett-Packard's specifications might cause problems for the product, requiring repair. This repair is not covered by the Hewlett-Packard warranty or service agreements.
  • For best results, use only HP-brand paper and print media designed for inkjet printers or multiuse.
  • Use paper or print media made for inkjet printers.
  • Hewlett-Packard Company cannot recommend the use of other brands of media because HP cannot control their quality.
  note:
Based on HP internal testing using a range of plain papers, HP highly recommends using papers with the ColorLok® logo for this product. For details, go to www.hp.com/go/printpermanence.
