Paper curl is a fact of life with inkjet papers, especially with fine art hand made papers and papers that have come off a roll. All paper ultimately comes of a roll - it is either cut into a smaller roll from a larger one or cut from a roll into paper sheets.
Further, due to the grain of the paper (the direction in which most of the paper fibres run), and the type of coatings used (which will react differently to the paper base to changes in temperature and humidity), paper is destined to curl. It's part and parcel of the entire production process and not really a fault per se, more something that is a fundamental part of the natural paper making process.
If you really hate paper curl, then you have a few choices. Double sided papers, being coated on both sides, tend to curl less. Museo Portfolio Rag is not really a double sided paper but they've treated the back side to help the paper resist curl. In general, resin coated papers curl less than fibre based ones as the resin helps the fibres resist the urge to curl.
But largely, if you want to use beautiful fine art papers, paper curl is a fact of life you are bound to encounter. Here are a few tips for working with paper curl.
Jeremy’s knowledge of images and enthusiasm for sharing his knowledge were reassuring and we left feeling confident and excited to begin printing. Starting out on this unknown journey was definitely easier thanks to Jeremy and the friendly team at Image Science.........The team at Image Science have also helped us learn more about shipping. Businesses we deal with have been impressed by the quality of the packaging from image Science when they receive the prints via post.
