Types of Media
10/27/05 S4M Maintenance Manual 13291L-001 Rev. A
Fanfold media is folded in a zigzag pattern. Fanfold
media can have the same label divisions as non-
continuous roll media. The divisions would fall on or
near the folds.
Continuous media is wound on a core and is without
gaps, holes, notches, or black marks. This allows the
image to be printed anywhere on the label. With
continuous media, use the transmissive sensor so the
printer can detect when the media runs out.
