Surprisingly, one little known fact is that the paper you use in your printer absorbs moisture, just like a sponge. Especially during the summer months when humidity levels are high. The properties of the material used to make paper have a strong attraction for water. This can greatly effect print quality that most people blame on the printer itself. If you have a laser printer and the paper has too much moisture content, you will see “smoke” coming out of the top of the printer.
