• Certain types of plastic cards may be scratched when scanned. To prevent damage to the card, we
recommended using the Carrier Sheet. For more information, see Loading the Carrier Sheet on page 16.

Important Carrier Sheet tips
„ To avoid document jams, do not load the Carrier Sheet upside down. For more information, see Loading
the Carrier Sheet on page 16.
„ To avoid document jams, do not put several small documents into the Carrier Sheet at the same time.
Insert only one document into the Carrier Sheet at a time.
„ Do not write on the Carrier Sheet, as the writing may be seen in scanned documents. If the Carrier Sheet
becomes dirty, wipe it with a dry cloth.
„ Do not leave documents in the Carrier Sheet for extended periods of time, as the printing on the
documents may bleed through onto the Carrier Sheet.
