Moab Support Forum > Moab Juniper Baryta rag 305 paper thickness setting on HP Z3100

Hi,
I am in the process of profiling Juniper Baryta Rag 305 on my HP Z3100.
I am creating a custom ICC Profile and know to select "semi-gloss/satin (more ink)" as my media type.
I am wondering if I should change the paper thickness setting from "normal" to "thick" for this type of paper.
I have profiled this paper in the past but couldn't remember which setting I used.
I see that there is a preset HP paper type called "thick fine art paper (<250 g/m2)" for the printer which uses the "thick" setting so I wasn't sure if Juniper Bryta also required the thick setting since it is 305 gsm.
Thanks

The paper thickness setting is always a balance between avoiding head strikes and maintaining a sharp print. Your media setting of semi-gloss/satin is a good choice- I would begin with the thickness setting at normal, and only change it to thick if you are getting head strikes during your testing. I assume that 'thick fine art paper' uses matte black ink, so you don't want that setting with Juniper.

Thanks so much.
I started with the "normal" paper width and immediately noticed head strikes during paper calibration so I cancelled the calibration and changed to the "thick" setting on the semi-glass/satin media. So far so good.
thanks for your help.
