My experience with Innova FibaPrint F-Type Gloss in Briliant White is that when it came out of the envelope, it laid very flat. The Crane Museo Silver Rag nd a bit of corl at the very edges, and it picked uyp a bit of inks as mentioned in my post about platten gap, and the issue was solved by creating the custom paper handling configuration. Are you inserting the Da Vinci sheet into only the manual feed tray under the auto-feed tray?
Been putting it into the auto-feed tray. Thanks for the heads up that it was covered in the platten posts - been busy of late and not had time to read all the posts.
The prime problem that I see with this paper is the way it has been cut from the roll. If you insert the paper short end first (not sure if you can do a long end first print?) then the paper curls side to side. Therefore, the paper lifts at the edges and strikes the print head. If the paper had been cut so that the curl was front to back when inserted short end first then the paper would lie flat in the axis of the print head direction and the risk of a head strike would be minimised.
Now, call me stupid - but wouldn't a competent paper manufacturer know to cut the paper such that when it is inserted short end first it should lift at the front and back (if it did curly) rather than side to side?
The paper is nice - from the limited amount of printing I did manage to obtain - but the manufacturing quality of the edges and the inherent curl makes it unsuable. I also had a private message from someone who also had problems with this paper and came a cross a blog with the same experience. So at least I don't feel that I am alone with this problem.
If you pay so much for a paper then it should lie flat, not have rough edges and be a high quality product - or am I expecting too much?
