HP LaserJet Enterprise 700 M712 - Alternative letterhead mode

Alternative letterhead mode

Use the Alternative Letterhead Mode feature so that you can load letterhead or preprinted paper into the tray the same way for all print or copy jobs, whether you are printing or copying to one side of the sheet of paper or to both sides. When using this mode, load paper the same way you would for automatic duplex printing as shown in <Figure 1> and <Figure 2> below.

Alternative Letterhead Mode is not an option available in the Mac printer drivers. To achieve the same results, add a blank page to the end of the document if it ends in an odd number only. Failure to add the blank page at the end of an odd number print job will result in the last page being printed on the backside of the letterhead.
