Important guidelines for printing on transparency film with laser
(specifically the HP Color LaserJet 4500)
Do not attempt to locate your own transparency film for use
in the laser printers unless you are absolutely certain that you know what
you are doing. Loading the wrong film will damage the printer.
Approved laser transparency film is stocked in tray2 of the color laser
printer in 832 MRB1. Reserve stock is located in the cabinet underneath.
When tray2 is empty, refill it from the reserve stock. If you open the last
box, send email to
email@example.com call the system administrator so that more can be ordered. It will only
take a second, and you will save a lot of trouble by doing so!
You must only use transparency film designed for use in laser
printers. Color Inkjet and Copier films are not designed to withstand the
high temperatures encountered inside a laser printer. It will melt when it hits
the fuser and the result will be a sticky mess inside the printer. We know
this from experience, so please don't test it! Be certain
about the film you use in the printer.
