I had a couple of problems with that size Pictorico on my Epson 10000.

The first problem was static electricity which caused feeding problems—
humidity helped with that.

The second problem was during the initial allignment of the paper for the
leading edge. The Pictorico would feed down inside so far that the back edge
would catch inside when it was backing up. You can stop this by taping the
Pictorico to a leader sheet so that it has a couple of inches of paper in front
of the leading edge of the Pictorico.

Watch out for head strikes—plays hell with the printer.
