Re: On paper thickness

I print a lot with Epson Exhibition Fiber that's 13 mils (0.5mm) thick using the rear feed tray without any issues. You can only feed one at a time, but that's the same as if you use the front tray.

Now let's look at the the advantage of using the rear tray. You are stating that your paper has a bow (curve) in it. When you use the front feed tray the bow will be there as you feed the paper and the head can strike it. When you use the rear tray the forced feeding of the paper at a major curve from almost vertical to horizontal reduces/eliminates the bow in the paper.

We have been where you are and we just experimented to see what happens and works the best. Try different papers, different settings, rear feeding, front feeding, etc.

many thanks for sharing your experience, it is really appreciated.

I will try the rear feed, if you use it with EEF (which is a delicate surface paper as per what I know) without problems then it should definitely work.

Now my question is: if the rear tray is OK for Fine Art paper why Epson recommed the front tray in the manuals (and this is confirmed in the online reviews I have seen too)?
