Printing using special paper on the HuskyPrint stations

If you have special paper, e.g., cardstock, colored paper, or larger format paper, you can print to it using the manual feed tray.

  1. Select Husky-BW or Husky-Color.
  2. At your computer, before you select Print, select Printer Properties.
  3. Determine the paper size, type, and color of your special paper. You will need to choose the same options at the HuskyStation later when you insert your special paper.  Select the drop-down arrow for Paper to change paper options.
    • Select Other Size if it is a different type other than Letter (8.5 x 11") (ex. Legal (8.5 x 14").
    • Select Other Color if it is a color other than white (ex. Ivory).
    • Select Other Type if it is a different type other than plain (ex. Lightweight Cardstock).
    • Select by Tray: (Do NOT choose Select by Tray).
  4. Select Print.
  5. At one of the HuskyPrint stations, place your special paper in the Bypass tray, which is located on the left side.
