To get the best print quality, we suggest using 
Brother paper. (See table below.)
If Brother paper is not available in your 
country, we recommend testing various 
papers before purchasing large quantities.
We recommend using ‘3M Transparency 
Film’ when you print on transparencies.
Handling and using media
2
Store paper in its original packaging, and 
keep it sealed. Keep the paper flat and 
away from moisture, direct sunlight and 
heat.
The coated side of photo paper is shiny. 
Avoid touching the shiny (coated) side. 
Load photo paper with the shiny side 
facing down.
Avoid touching either side of 
transparencies because they absorb 
water and perspiration easily, and this 
may cause decreased output quality. 
Transparencies designed for laser 
printers/copiers may stain your next 
document. Use only transparencies 
recommended for inkjet printing.
