So, I found there's two ways to load this thing: a stack of paper in a tray at the bottom or individually via a fold out door above the tray
<slaps own forehead>. Then it's a question of adjusting 'Properties' in the print dialogue. 'A4' or 'Letter' before clicking 'Print' a second time.

Now if I can just figure out how to un-bold the font: way to much ink being used
