Storing Supplies

Store printer supplies in the printer operating environment for at least one day before using them. At other times, you can store supplies in an environment that does not exceed the following requirements:

Temperature
-25° to 40°C (-13° to 104°F)
Relative Humidity
 5% to 90%

Forms have different storage requirements. Store forms in an area where temperature and humidity are similar to the environment in which they will be used. If forms do not adapt to moisture changes, wrinkles and voids can occur during printing.

Avoid areas of extreme heat or humidity. Extended exposure to these extremes can damage the materials permanently. Relative humidity levels above 65% may reduce print quality.
