Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies
When using any laser printer, monochrome or color machine, be sure to fan the paper before inserting into the paper cassette tray. The technique is simple. Holding a stack of paper in your hands, each hand on the short edge, flex the paper to create an arc in the stack. Then pinch down on the ends of the paper and straighten the arc out. You'll produce a bulge in the middle of the stack which creates an air space between every sheet in the stack. Now the paper will not cling and paper jams will not occur.
The 2nd tip is to note which "direction" the paper is cut because feeding the paper in one side first may provide better traction than if you were to feed the other end in first. Paper has a grain and its lays down in one or the other direction.
