Each monthly run is for about 400+ sets of 6 sides (3 sheets, both sides). My output tray is small so I must do it in batches of 32 or 48 so I can keep track easily of how many I’ve done. Anyhow, after the 2nd or 3rd batch, it started crinkling - badly. Last month, it happened a few times toward the end of the run. I thought perhaps the cheaper grade of paper I had been using was getting more flimsy. So this month, I bought a slightly better grade. Apparently that was not the issue.
I emailed my go-to printer-wizard. He suspects the paper is skewing inside the machine. I need to get it looked at. This must be done before next month’s run. It is under warranty.
It’s just that it takes time - getting in touch with them, finding out whether it will be done locally or must be shipped out. And fitting it in between other matters.
Tomorrow is my left-eye cataract surgery, then the next day is the post-op checkup, and Thursday I staple all the newsletters, and Friday is my charity crafters, and Sunday I deliver my route (about 50) of them, and Monday I have a quick checkup at my primary care guy’s office which was already scheduled.
Having these things running through my mind while the paper was crinkling and wrinkling, I was very grateful that my printer-guy ended our call with a real prayer for this to go right for me. I suspect he’s got an “in” with the Lord because at least it all got done. There will be a little waste because I must swap out flat pages for bumpy ones, but all in all, it did get done with not too much trouble. There was a lot of stress, though, and that’s my fault because I delayed turning it over to the Lord.
