Printing on Postcards

  1. Load postcard on the printer

  2. Open the printer driver setup window

  3. Select commonly used settings

    Display the Quick Setup tab, and for Commonly Used Settings, select Standard.

    • Return postcards can be used only when you print them from the computer.
    • When printing a return postcard, always set the paper size to Hagaki 2 200x148mm from your application software or the printer driver.
    • Do not fold the return postcard. If a crease is formed, the printer will not be able to feed the postcard properly, and this condition will cause line shifts or a paper jam.
    • With return postcards, borderless printing cannot be used.

    To hide these guide messages, select the Do not show this message again check box.
