Recommendations below are specific to the paper sizes mentioned in this article;
- LEF tray-loading orientation
- Paper-grain orientation
- Media (paper) weight
General Grain Rule
Paper grain running in a direction that is parallel to the printer's paper path will almost always will be more resistant to curl, however, there can be exceptions based on paper dimensions.
|Orientation into the printer||Recommended|
Long edge first (LEF)
Short grain, For example, 5.8" x 8.3"
Short edge first (SEF)
Long grain, For example, 5.8" x 8.3"
- Grain running parallel with the longest measurement of a sheet of paper (grain long)
- Grain running at right angles to the longest measurement of a sheet of paper (grain short)
In this case, the paper's overall side-to-side beam strength, grain direction, and original LEF feed orientation contributed to this 202.03 error.
