 To avoid document jams, do not load the Receipt Carrier Sheet upside down. Refer to the instructions

 Do not write on the Receipt Carrier Sheet, as the writing may be seen in a scanned receipt. If the Receipt
Carrier Sheet becomes dirty, wipe it with a dry cloth.
 Do not leave any receipt in the Receipt Carrier Sheet for extended periods of time, as the printing on the
receipt may bleed-through onto the Receipt Carrier Sheet.
