Related notes

Store any unprinted magnetic papers flat in original packaging to avoid exposure to humidity and dirt. Keep away from direct sunlight and at room temperature.
Printing set up instructions are provided as a guideline.

Final results depend on the type of ink used and whether original or compatible. Some adjustment might be required to the printer driver in order to get the optimal results. In the very unlikely event that magnetic paper does not feed in the printer, a gentle push as the printer attempts to pick up the paper might assist in feeding. Worn and contaminated feeding rollers on older printers may also effect feeding. Rollers can be cleaned with acetone or alcohol to improve the feeding of paper.
