Do not use letterhead paper that is printed with low-temperature inks,
such as those used in some types of thermography.

Do not use raised or embossed letterhead.

The printer uses heat and pressure to fuse toner to the paper. Make
sure that any colored paper or preprinted forms use inks that are
compatible with this fusing temperature (200° C or 392° F for
0.1 second).
