I have some transparencies which I bought from staples office store. They are meant for all different kinds of printers (they have a coating on one side).
When I tried printing on them, I noticed that I have to load a full sheet into the main paper tray of my brother HL-L2320D USB printer just to get it to print correctly.
If I load it in the front paper feeder, then 99% of the time, the paper scrunches up.
The reason I'm using transparencies is because I make my own circuit boards through the photo-graphic method (think old-fashioned photography). Sometimes my circuit board artwork is way too small to fit a whole sheet so I tend to put a bunch of circuits together on one page which is also tedious thanks to the software not helping.
When I had my previous printer (brother HL-2040), I was able to print on transparencies without them scrunching up. Now I think technology is getting worse when it comes to printing transparencies since I was one of the 5% that still use transparencies.
So rather than me trying to put a bunch of circuits together and/or blowing money on full sheets of transparencies just to use 1/8th of the sheet, are there any special tricks or methods I should follow when loading small sheets of transparencies into a lazer printer without them crunching up?
I always print them so the toner goes on the side opposite of the coating.
