Guidelines for two-sided (duplex) printing

Always use media that conforms to the device specifications. For more information, see




Do not print on both sides of transparencies, envelopes, photo paper, glossy media, or paper
lighter than 16 lb bond (60 g/m


) or heavier than 28 lb bond (105 g/m


). Jams might occur with

these media types.

Several kinds of media require a specific orientation when you print on both sides of a page.
These include letterhead, preprinted paper, and paper with watermarks and prepunched holes.
When you print from a computer running Windows, the device prints the first side of the media
first. Load the media with the print side facing down.
