Samgsung CLP315 - Glossy Paper

  David4637 10:42 17 Jul 2010

I have the above Colour Laser Printer, and output is brilliant, even with normal plain paper. Can I use a glossy type of paper rather than the normal photocopy paper in it, to produce an even better image, if not what is the best type of paper to achieve the equivalent of a glossy print?
Thanks David

According to Samsung's spec you can use glossy paper in that printer. But do be very careful that you choose a paper that is compatible with the printer.

Using even one sheet of the wrong coated paper in a laser printer can cause considerable damage.

Whatever you do, do not use Gloss Inkjet Paper in a Laser printer. Or any kind of Coated paper

Thanks for your replies, I obvious realise that toner is fused (heated)on to the paper and therefore ink glossy paper would do damage. Pineman100 - Do you or others know of any special papers to give a glossy effect that would be OK?
Thanks David

You can get Laser Gloss but it's no good in my Epson c1100 Colour Laser

My advice would be to go to the Samsung website and see what they recommend for your printer.

Thanks all for your help, will ask samsung whether they can recommend a laser glossy paper that will not damage the printer. Thanks David

Why was glossy no good in your Epsom?
Thanks David

The CLP 315 manual, page 32, states that the recommended glossy A4 paper is HP Superior Paper 160 glossy.

BTW I haven't got a Ssmsung CLP 315 and don't know how well that paper will work.

This is gloss paper as used in magazine production
and is a chalk base calendered finish[ instead of the permeable plastic of Ink Jet Paper] as such it passes through the laser fuser unit safely.
However the output is not 'Glossy as such although better than photocopy bond paper.
