Select the type of label that you are using from the Print dialog box or the printer driver.


To avoid damaging the printer, use only labels that are recommended for laser printers. To prevent serious jams, always use Tray 1 or Tray 2 to print on labels. Never print on the same sheet of labels more than once or print on a partial sheet of labels.

When selecting labels, consider the quality of each component:

Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at 210°C (410°F), which is the printer fusing temperature.
Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing between them. Labels can peel off sheets with spaces between the labels, causing serious jams.
Curl: Before printing, labels must lie flat with no more than 13 mm (0.5 inch) of curl in any direction.
Condition: Do not use labels that have wrinkles, bubbles, other indications of separation, or are damaged in any way.

For instructions on loading labels, see Loading Tray 1 or Loading Tray 2.
