Disclaimer: Laser-printing on Rocketbook paper can damage your printer if not done properly. We suggest using TerraSlate paper and doing some research in the Rocketbook Users Facebook Group. Rocketbook Pages are not intended to be printed on as is.

When you add Smart Tags to your scans and send to a Cloud destination, the Smart Tag remains.
