Likely yes.

  • You might need to create a Custom Paper Size form

AND

  • Tell the printer what you are doing (using custom size paper)
  • Set the printing preferences to include the shortcut, print settings (size, media, source)
  • Use a compatible software to open, view, and submit the job to the printer

 

 

Specifications > Paper Handling > Supported Custom Sizes

  Supported custom sizes

To avoid paper jams and other issues when printing on nonstandard custom paper sizes, make sure the dimensions fall within the parameters listed in the following table.
Paper size
Tray 1
ADF
88.9 to 215 mm (3.5 to 8.5 inches) wide and 127 to 355 mm (5.0 to 14.0 inches) long
 

☑️

 

 
127 to 216 mm (5.0 to 8.5 inches) wide and 127 to 355 mm (5.0 to 14.0 inches) long
 
 

☑️
