Printing on custom-size media

Printing on custom-size media

The printer supports single-sided printing and manual duplexing on custom-size media. Tray 1 supports media sizes from 76 x 127 mm (3 x 5 inches) to 216 x 356 mm (8.5 x 14 inches). Tray 2 and tray 3 support media sizes from 148 x 210 mm (5.83 x 8.27 inches) to 215.9 x 355.6 mm (8.5 x 14 inches).

When printing on custom-size media, if tray 1 is configured in the printer control panel as TRAY X TYPE= ANY TYPE and TRAY X SIZE= ANY, the printer will print on whatever media is loaded in the tray.

Some software programs and printer drivers allow you to specify custom media-size dimensions. Be sure to set the correct media size in both the page setup and print dialog boxes. If your software does not allow this, specify the custom media-size dimensions in the PAPER HANDLING control-panel menu. See Paper Handling menu for more information.

If your software program requires you to calculate margins for custom-size media, see the online Help for that program.
