How do I scan thick or special paper?

    You can load envelopes or thick originals (such as post cards or business cards) in the input tray. Make sure the originals meet the specifications for special originals before loading them.

    Note: When scanning special originals, turn off the Detect Double Feed setting on the Main Settings tab in Epson Scan 2.

    1. Slide the cover latch to open the scanner.
    2. Press the  power button to turn on the scanner, if necessary.
    3. Extend the paper guide.
    4. Raise the input tray edge guides and slide them all the way out.
    5. Slide the mode selector to ADF.
    6. Do one of the following:
      • For an envelope, load it vertically in the input tray with the printable side down and the flap facing as shown. Slide in the envelope until it meets resistance and the Ready light becomes brighter.
      • For thick originals, load them vertically in the input tray printable side down and top edge first. Slide in the originals until they meet resistance and the Ready light becomes brighter.
    7. Slide the edge guides against the edges of the original.
