Keeping your paper and envelopes fit for the machines in your office is as important as proper maintenance. Taking these tips under consideration can save you a lot of headaches caused by paper jams, unnecessary service calls and unproductive staff.
(1) Always use the materials recommended by the manufacture. This avoids downtime, improves the machine operation, and keeps you within the recommended specifications.
(2) Use equipment at the same temperature and humidity, about 64 to 90 degrees F and 40 to 60% humidity. Example, the shipping dock or basement may not be the best location for electro mechanical equipment or paper and envelope storage.
(3) Store your materials in a safe environment, a cool dry area. Never store paper or envelopes in damp or moist areas.
