Tips for feeding inkjet papers
Help for consistently feeding double-sided, heavy, or thick papers in your printer.
Please note that inkjet printers (even the same models) are not all the same. One may feed better than another. Don't expect every printer you buy to perform the same.
Double-sided Paper Note - Both sides of double-sided paper can be photo printed as they are both coated. The coating makes each side very smooth and for an inkjet printer, this may present misfeeds in some printer models. It is important that you keep your printer maintained by cleaning the feed rollers after each box of matte paper you use! Start with tip #1.
Tip #1 - Clean Your Printer
Properly maintain your printer. If you use the printer often, use cotton art papers, and especially 2-sided inkjet papers, you should clean the feed mechanism often.
To keep your printer clean you can do the following:
Tip # 2
Do not push the paper tray guide up against the paper. Leave no more than 1/4" gap between the guide and the paper.
These videos focus on note card sizes, but the advice is applicable to all sizes of inkjet paper.
