Labels

HP recommends that you print labels from the single-sheet priority input slot (Tray 1) using
the straight-through output path. See

Straight-through output path

for more information.

CAUTION

Do not feed a sheet of labels through the printer more than once. The adhesive degrades
and might damage the printer.

Label construction

When selecting labels, consider the quality of the following components:

Adhesives: The adhesive material should be stable at 200° C (392° F), the printer's
maximum temperature.

Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed backing between them. Labels can peel
off sheets that have spaces between the labels, causing serious jams.

Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no more than 13 mm (0.5 in.) of curl in any
direction.

Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles, bubbles, or other indications of separation.
