storing and handling photo paper

Follow these instructions to maintain the quality of your HP brand photo paper.


Keep unused photo paper in a resealable plastic bag, in the box in which it was
originally packaged. Store the packaged photo paper on a flat surface in a cool place.

When you are ready to print, remove only the paper that you plan to use
immediately. When you have finished printing, return any unused photo paper to
the plastic bag.

Do not leave unused photo paper in the printer's paper tray. The paper may start to
curl, which can reduce the quality of your photographs.


Always hold photo paper by the edges. Fingerprints on photo paper can reduce print

If the corners of the photo paper curl more than 10 mm or 3/8 inch, flatten the
paper by putting it in the resealable storage bag, then rolling the bag on a table
edge until the paper is flat.

Photo paper should be flat before printing.
