Bob, do you ever even use the front loader? How thick is EEF? Just wondering!

The reason I ask is because I have yet to need to use any other feed path on any of the printers for even 300gm Moab Water color paper which is like card stock! I can feed it from the top feeder without a single problem on the 3800 or any of the other printers.


I only use the top feeder. All thick papers, including Epson Exhibition Fiber (13mils), load and print fine. In fact, I have never tried the front tray on my R3000 since I got it about a year ago. I also feed canvas from the top tray.

Epson Cold Press Natural (and Bright) are 21 mil, quite thick!

Hmm...just poking around the printer settings. By Media Type (Cold Press Natural) when I access Paper Config it says paper thickness 5. Could this have anything to do with it? I can't seem to change it to anything higher than 13.

That printer driver paper thickness number is in 0.1mm, 0.1mm = 4 mils.  Thus the number 5 in the box equals 20 mils, 13 equals 52 mils.

Plenty of range for most papers available.
