Handling Paper and Other Media
Loading Roll Paper for Printing
Once the roll paper is attached to the spindle and inserted in the printer,
you’re ready to load it for printing. First, open the roll paper cover and make
sure the spindle is inserted correctly. Then follow these steps:
1. Make sure the printer is turned on. Then press the
button until one of the
lights comes on.
Roll Auto Cut
if you want the paper to be cut automatically
after each page is printed.
Roll Cutter Off
if you’re printing on canvas, vinyl, or other
heavy media, if you’re using the optional auto take-up reel, or if you
want to print a series of pages and keep them together for later
If you’re using the auto cut setting, you can have a trim line printed
on the right edge of your images or pages. If you’re not using auto
cut, you can have the line printed on the right and bottom edges of
your pages. See page 1-15 for instructions.
You can also select roll paper settings through your print options,
which will override the control panel settings. See the RIP Station
5100 User Guide or Appendix B or C in this manual for more
To avoid feeding excess
paper through the printer,
make sure you don’t
select Sheet when you’re
using roll paper.
If you’re using canvas,
vinyl, or heavy stock,
choose Roll Cutter Off.
Media that is too thick
may damage the cutter.
