Pixma MX450/MX459 Printing on thick paper

Is there a good way to print on thick, stiff paper? Curling the front edge seems to help.


I am trying to print on green full 8 1/2 x 11 labels, they are thicker and stiffer than normal white labels like #8165 Avery labels, but I wanted the colored background. They are from JAM (R) Paper and Envelope (maybe the name should have been a clue?).

I set the media to photo paper and that sometimes helped, I can get them to print usually if I pre-curl the front edge of the paper a bit in the direction that it will wrap around the printer roller.
