Tip for printing labels

Many people printing labels have problems during the printing process. Many times the paper jams and you just don’t know why. Well many times it turns out that the problem is that the wrong paper thickness has been chosen. Or more correctly, a paper type has not been selected, and the default paper type, plain paper, is automatically chosen for you. You might not get a lot of paper jams if you’re printing just a couple of pages, but if you’re printing a significant number of pages, you’re bound to get some jams.
The solution is pretty easy. Just go to your Printer Properties, then in Printing Preferences select a Paper Type, or Media Type as “Labels”.
