Optimizing print quality for media types
Media type settings control the temperature of your printer's fuser. You can change the
settings for the media that you are using to optimize the print quality.
You can access the optimizing feature from the Paper tab in your printer driver, from
HP Toolbox, or from the embedded Web server.
The HP LaserJet 1160 and HP LaserJet 1320 series printers provide a number of print
modes that allow the unit to adapt more specifically to the printer's media environment. The
following tables provide an overview of the driver print modes.
When using the CARDSTOCK, ENVELOPE, LABEL, and ROUGH modes, the printer
pauses between pages and the number of pages per minute decreases.
