Printing Options Using Rolls and Sheets

The printer supports both rolls and sheets.

This section introduces the main features of each, as well as the main printing methods available. Select rolls or sheets to suit your particular printing application.


  • For information on the types of paper the printer supports, see "Types of Paper."

  • A variety of other ways to print are available besides those introduced here. For details, see "Enhanced Printing Options."

Roll printing

Media in spooled rolls is generally called Roll Media. Rolls are loaded on the Roll Holder, which are in turn loaded in the printer.

Rolls can be used to print large photos or create posters or banners that cannot be printed on regular sheets.


Sheet printing

Sheets refer to individual sheets of paper.

Insert the sheet between the platen and the paper retainer.
