Does The Printer Jam When Printing Laser Labels?

If your printer is jamming when printing labels on a laser printer? If the answer is yes, there are a few reasons that the labels could be jamming.
The first reason, which you can verify pretty quickly, is that you are not using the proper paper thickness setting while printing. To be able to print jam free, you need to set the paper thickness to “labels” in the printer preferences dialog box. Paper thickness can also be shown as “Media Type” or “Paper Type”. If “labels” is not an option then just choose the thickest possible paper thickness. This should prevent your labels from jamming, but unfortunately it will also considerably slow down printing speeds depending on the model printer you have. This is the most common reason for jamming labels.

The second reason, which is less common, is that there is debris, such as a label that has come off the sheet, and has stuck to any one of the rollers or on the fuser assembly. There could even be a whole sheet of paper stuck in the fuser which might be tough to see. You’ll have to open up the printer from all possible angles to check that. Check the places in laser printers like the top access door where you can take out the toner or a back door that is for thru printing (so that the rollers don’t bend the paper or labels).

Other reasons for jamming could be worn rollers, worn fuser, or gremlins 🙂

M-5352 10 Up Copier Labels

The M-5352 Labels are 10 up (10 labels per sheet) that can be used in all plain toner copiers. These labels are great because they take up almost all of the real estate on the page which offers more space to print, whereas the ML-1000 has small borders on the left and right.
If you’re having trouble creating a template, no need to fret, we’ve created a template specifically for the M-5352.

Address Labels – An Alternate Use

If you’ve got a few extra sheets of our ML-3000 address labels, there are plenty of things to use them for. The primary use would be for Address Labels. However, if you regularly cook, and save your food in food containers in the fridge, you can use the ML-3000 labels for labeling them.
Things to include on the label might be things like the Date, the Day of the Week, the Name of the food item. You also might want to consider other things like checkboxes for Nuts/Peanuts for people with allergies. Maybe a check box for Low Sodium for people watching their blood pressure.
Here’s what it might look like:

Bulk Labels

All of our front page labels come in case quantities. Each box has 100 sheets, and each case has 5 boxes. This packaging works well for a great number of our customers. However, there are some customers who need to cut down on packaging. This is where our Bulk Labels, or Bulk Pack Labels come in. Our Bulk Packs of Labels come in boxes of 250 sheets, and each case has 2 boxes.

Laser Labels

All of our Home Page labels are Laser Labels, meaning they are specifically designed for Laser printers. However, they are Inkjet Labels as well, designed to be printed using Inkjet printers. A long time ago before advances in paper manufacturing and Inkjet printing technologies, Laser Labels and Inkjet Labels were separate products, but now the quality of these papers are in combined in one product.

Half Sheet Label

Our Half Sheet Label is a great product. There are so many uses for it. You can use it to print a UPS Shipping Label, a USPS Shipping Label, and a Fedex Shipping Label.
In a pinch, if you have spare stock, but are short on address labels, you can also use it as an address label, by manually cutting the sheet to size. It’s a quality label that’s versatile.

ML-7950 VHS Spine and Face Label

The ML-7950 has two different types of label in the package. There is a Spine label, which is the skinny label that you stick on the long thin side of the VHS tape. The other is the Face label, which gets stuck on the face of the VHS tape. Apparently there are some people out there who still use VHS tapes, and hence these labels, and so we’ll keep selling them. 🙂
