If your documents have excessive curl after printing on plain paper, try the following:

  • If your are printing pictures or documents with large areas of image content, try increasing the top and bottom margins when printing in portrait mode or the left and right margins when printing in landscape mode. Start with a one-inch margin on top and bottom and a quarter-inch margin on the sides. The larger the margin, the less potential there is for curl. 
  • Print on a higher weight paper, such as 24 lb (90 gsm) paper.
  • Apply a border, rather than printing in borderless mode.
  • If the paper is not stacking properly in the output tray, remove the pages as they exit.
