Carillon, It's your printer, not the paper. I've been using Aspen since it first came out about 6 years ago. NEVER have I had a feeding problem with it. It's thinner that Epson Archival Matte, and I've never had a problem with that either. With my 1160's and 1280, I never have any problems with Royal Riviera, and it's close to 300 Gsms. One thing you can do that really works for a lot of people is cut yourself a piece of 1/4th inch foam core and use it as a support sheet. Make sure it is the same size as the paper you're using. After I started doing this, I've never experienced a feeding problem since.
