Recently, several tax collector and license plate agencies have notified the department that the toner is not adhering to the new PRIDE decal stock. The department researched this problem and has two possible solutions, which will help the toner adhere to the card stock. The Middle tray of each printer MUST be used for printing decals.

 

 

Option 1 On your workstation:

 

     Go to “Start” then “Printers and Faxes.”

     Select the printer that prints decals. (MIDDLE)

The Middle tray MUST be used for printing decals.

     Right click on the designated printer.

     Go to “Properties.”

     Make sure the tab showing is “General.”

     Click on “Printing Preferences.”

     Click on “Advanced.”

     Go down to Printer Features and then to paper type. “Printer Default” should be shown. Click on the arrow and select “Card Stock.”

     Select OK.

SPECIAL NOTE: This option will slow the printing of the decal printer only. Printing from any other tray should continue to run at normal speed.

 

Option 2 On your Samsung printer:

 

                     Press Menu, the word “Information” will show.

                     Press the right arrow button until the work “paper” is shown.

                     Press Enter.

                     Press the right arrow button again until the word “media type” is shown.

                     Press Enter.

                     Press the right arrow button again until the word “card stock” is shown.

                     Press Enter.

                     Press Menu.

SPECIAL NOTE: This option will slow all printing; however, it may produce a better print quality.
