What do I do if I notice my paper has curled?

Posted: 20 Dec 2018

  Paper Queries  

 

Paper curl is a very common issue due to a number of reasons. To start with, all paper whether roll or cut sheet originates from a roll meaning they will have a natural curve to them. The paper grain and coating will also have an effect on the paper and can lead to curling when the paper is kept in certain temperatures or in a humid environment.

There are quite a few different methods to help to avoid paper curl or stop the paper curl having an effect on your print. Please see above tips on how to store your paper in order to avoid your paper curling.
If you are about to print and you notice that the edges of the sheet are curling then the best thing to do is to gently bend the paper back against itself in the opposite direction to the curl. As the paper gets pulled through the printer this should flatten out and prevent the head from catching on the corners of the paper.
Another method you can try to avoid the print head catching on the corner of the paper is to widen the platen gap inside your printer driver. If you notice you are getting head strikes on the paper, change your platen gap settings to ‘Wide’ or ‘Wider’ which will lift the head height slightly to avoid paper abrasion.
