Now to load the paper roll onto the Brother Printer.
Find the side with Punched Holes and face it downwards. Then place the paper roll into the printer with Punched Holes side of the roll facing the right side of the printer.
Roll the paper until the paper comes out slightly on the opening of the printer. Make sure the edge aligns with the printer. Once you close the shell, the printer will automatically calibrate the roll.
