The print quality can be affected by the type 
of paper you use in the machine.
To get the best print quality for the settings 
you have chosen, always set the Paper Type 
to match the type of paper you load.
You can use plain paper, inkjet paper (coated 
paper), glossy paper, transparencies and 
envelopes.
We recommend testing various paper types 
before buying large quantities.
For best results, use Brother paper.
When you print on inkjet paper (coated 
paper), transparencies and glossy paper, 
be sure to choose the proper print media 
in the “Basic” tab of the printer driver or in 
the Paper Type setting of the machine’s 
menu. (See Paper Type uu page 14.)
When you print on Brother Photo paper, 
load one extra sheet of the same photo 
paper in the paper tray. An extra sheet has 
been included in the paper package for 
this purpose.
When you print on transparencies,  load 
one extra sheet in the paper tray.
When using transparencies or photo 
paper, remove each sheet at once to 
prevent smudging or paper jams.
Avoid touching the printed surface of the 
paper immediately after printing; the 
surface may not be completely dry and 
may stain your fingers.
