Selecting Paper Types

Selecting Paper Types

One of the most important things you can do to assure the best possible performance of 
your Bubble Jet printer is to select the correct paper. Your printer produces letter quality 
print on most plain paper bond papers, including cotton bond and photocopying papers; it 
does not require special ink jet papers. However, the print quality varies with different 
paper types. Be sure to test a type of paper before you purchase a large quantity.

Plain Paper
The printer supports paper sizes of letter, legal, and A4 in portrait orientation. You can use 
regular copier paper, cotton bond papers, and typical letterhead. Always use paper without 
curls, folds, staples, or damaged edges.

Glossy Photo Paper
Canon Glossy Photo Paper GP-201 is a high gloss, thicker paper that produces the look 
and feel of a photograph and provides excellent color print quality. Use this paper with the 
BC-06 Photo BJ Cartridge to produce photo-realistic prints from your printer. Be sure to 
print on the glossy side. (In your print driver, select Glossy Paper when you have Glossy 
Photo Paper loaded.)
