Additional Media Guidelines for InfoPrint Color 1824

Follow the media guidelines below for successful printing:

Paper

  • Rough, highly textured, limp, or pre-curled papers will result in lower print quality and more frequent paper feed failures.
  • Colored papers must be able to withstand 200 deg C (392 deg F) fusing temperature.
  • Preprinted forms and letterheads must be able to withstand 200 deg C (392 deg F) fusing temperature and should be selected using guidelines found in the printer User's Guide. The chemical process used in preprinting may render some papers unsuitable for use with this printer.
  • Paper less than 75 gsm (20 lb) must be printed with Paper Type set to Light Paper
  • Paper 75 to 89.9 gsm (20 to 23.8 lb) must be printed with Paper Type set to Plain Paper
  • Paper 90 to 104.9 gsm (23.9 to 27.8 lb) must be printed with Paper Type set to Heavy Paper
  • Paper 105 to 176 gsm (27.9 to 47 lb) must be printed with Paper Type set to Cardstock

Recycled paper

As an environmentally conscious company, InfoPrint Solutions Company supports the use of recycled office paper produced specifically for use in laser (electrophotographic) printers. The following property guidelines apply to recycled paper.

  • Low moisture content (4-5%)
  • Suitable smoothness (100-200 Sheffield units)
  • Suitable sheet-to-sheet coefficient of friction (0.4-0.6)
  • Sufficient bending resistance in the direction of feed

Recycled paper, paper of lower weight (<60 gsm / 16 lb bond) and/or lower caliper (<3.8 mils / 0.1 mm), and paper that is cut grain-short for portrait (or short-edge) fed printers may have lower bending resistance than is required for reliable paper feeding. Before using these types of paper for laser (electrophotographic) printing, consult your paper supplier. Remember that these are general guidelines only and that paper meeting these guidelines may still cause paper feeding problems.

Unacceptable paper

The following paper types are not recommended for use with the printer:

  • Chemically treated papers used to make copies without carbon paper, also known as carbonless papers, carbonless copy paper (CCP), or no carbon required (NCR) paper
  • Preprinted papers with chemicals that may contaminate the printer
  • Preprinted papers that can be affected by the temperature in the printer fuser
  • Preprinted papers that require a registration (the precise print location on the page) greater than +/-2.3 mm (+/-0.9 in.), such as optical character recognition (OCR) forms. In some cases, registration can be adjusted with a software application to successfully print on these forms.
  • Coated papers (erasable bond), synthetic papers, thermal papers
  • Rough-edged, rough or heavily textured surface papers, or curled papers
  • Recycled papers that fail EN12281:2002 (European).
  • Paper weighing less than 60 gsm (16 lb)
  • A5 paper less than 80 gsm (21 lb)
  • Multiple-part forms or documents

Envelopes

  • All envelopes should be new, unused, and without package damage
  • Envelopes with excessive curl or twist exceeding 6 mm, those stuck together, those with bent corners or nicked edges, or those that interlock should not be used
  • Minimum weight: 60 gsm (16 lb.)
  • The following envelopes should not be used:
    • Envelopes with windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, or deep embossing
    • Envelopes with metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars
    • Envelopes with exposed flap adhesive when the flap is in the closed position
  • For best results, printing on new 90 gsm (24 lb.) sulfite or 25% cotton bond envelopes is recommended.
  • Under high humidity conditions (over 60%), envelopes may seal during printing.

Transparencies

  • Use letter or A4-size sheets only
  • Transparencies specifically designed for xerographic copy machines or laser printers may be used with the InfoPrint Color 1824

Labels

Labels should be selected using guidelines found in the User's Reference, Complete Printer Reference, or the Cardstock and Label, and tested for acceptability.

Note: VINYL AND POLYESTER LABELS ARE NOT SUPPORTED.

Print Quality

General Statement

During the life of the printer, components are subject to wear based on usage. Printers continuously operating at or near the maximum duty cycle may require service for replacement of these components to ensure high quality printing and good performance throughout the life of the printer. Replacement is recommended every 30,000 pages for the Imaging Unit.

Automatic Calibration

The printer performs an automatic calibration under the following conditions: 1. at power on, 2. after 8 hours of Power Saver, 3. every 500 pages, or 4. after changing a print cartridge. A manual calibration can be initiated from the Op Panel.

Resolution

The following resolutions are available:

  • 4800 "Color Quality" (default) (full printer speed)
  • 1200 x 1200 dpi (reduced printer speed) (supported in PS and PCL only)

Op Panel Menu Lockout

Color Balance Control

InfoPrint Color 1824 offers a Color Balance Control. It is a color correction option that allows the user to increase or decrease the amount of toner going to the page individually for the cyan, magenta, yellow and black color planes. The scale for the adjustments is +5 to -5.

RGB Brightness/Contrast/Saturation

An RGB Hue Color Adjustment will be available on this printer.

ColorSaver Mode

InfoPrint Color 1824 will offer a ColorSaver Mode that allows end users to print images and graphics lighter. Text will print at Toner Darkness "4", while images and graphics print at Toner Darkness "1". The ColorSaver Mode is located on the Op panel and may be selected from the Drivers.

Coverage Estimator

The Coverage Estimator is designed to give the user an approximation of percent coverage per color when printing a composite color document. The estimation of coverage can be used to calculate an approximate cost of any given document if yield and coverage are assumed to be linear and inversely related. This tool should allow customers to discover for themselves that printing color documents on color laser printers is frequently an economical way to create these documents. Furthermore, they can discover that many black and white documents can be improved for a nominal increase in cost.

The Coverage Estimator allows end users to estimate the percent coverage of cyan, magenta, yellow and black for a print job. The estimates will be printed on a report page following the job. The Coverage Estimator is available from the Op Panel.

The Coverage Estimator is intended to only estimate the coverage on a given page. For all toner colors that are used, the minimum percentage reported will be two percent. Reported values may vary from printer to printer. The accuracy of the estimates may be affected by the fullness of the print cartridges, environmental conditions, media type, application, application settings, driver, driver settings, and the content of the page. InfoPrint Solutions Company makes no claim as to the accuracy of the estimated percents.

Color Samples

To assist users in selecting the colors to be printed, they can print color samples pages for each of the RGB and CMYK color conversion tables used in the printer. The color samples pages consist of a series of colored boxes along with the RGB or CMYK combination that creates the color observed for each particular box. These pages can be useful in helping users decide which RGB or CMYK combinations to use in their software applications to create the desired printed color output.

Enhance Fine Lines

The printer offers this feature via the Op Panel or Host Based drivers. In this feature, setting this option to TRUE has the effect of more faithfully representing fine detail in jobs, such as fine lines in CAD drawings. The default is false.

The Chinese and Japanese font cards also contain a display font used for displaying Chinese and Japanese on some MFP devices. The DBCS Font Cards are suitable for use in a range of InfoPrint Solutions Company printers and MFPs. Fonts contained in these cards emulate those provided in Microsoft Windows. The use of printer-resident fonts in the card improves performance and minimizes network traffic since less data is downloaded to the printer. Each font card supports encodings appropriate for the language, including Adobe CID encodings.
