Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I fold glossy stock or other special stocks with this machine?
This machine is not recommended for glossy (shiny) paper stocks, thin carbonless forms, card stocks or folding envelopes. The recommended paper stock for this machine is up to 24# bond or up to 60# offset. To determine if it will work with your paper, see our paper weight conversion chart.
Can this machine fold 11" x 17" paper?
No. The maximum paper size for this machine is 8-1/2" x 14" (legal) size paper.
Can I do multiple sets at time on this machine?
No. This machine is designed for single page folding, meaning you can put a stack of paper in the bypass tray and it will fold each one individually. It cannot do stapled sets or multiple pages (i.e. a 3 page document) at one time.
Does this machine jam a lot?
If the folder has been set up correctly, and you use the recommended paper stocks for it, you can minimize jamming problems. Most paper folders, even the higher end ones used by commercial print shops, do jam from time to time. Many commercial print shops do a 10% overrun on their jobs to allow for jams or misfeeds in their machines. It's best to run a few extras of the item you are folding to allow for adequate set-up and some misfeeds.
What else can I do to minimize jams?
We have found that paper that has run through a heated process (i.e. copier, laser printer) will sometimes curl on the edges. Make sure paper is flat before feeding it into folder by placing a heavy object (like a phone book or heavy book) on it for a short period of time to flatten it. This helps to minimize paper jams. This curl usually doesn't occur with non-heated printing, like ink jet printers and offset presses. This curl is also less evident in heavier offset paper stocks, such as 60# offset/bond, than in regular 20# bond copy paper.
Can I deviate from the standard preset folds that come with the folder?
Sure! We do it all the time. However it will take some trial and error on your part to get the settings correct for custom folds. Neither we, or the manufacturer, can help you create custom fold settings, however it's pretty easy to do once you get a feel for the machine.
Do you ship outside of the lower 48 states?

What is the difference between the LF283, LF283A and LF283B models?
The LF283B is the upgraded model of this machine. The manufacturer has improved paper pickup performance with this generation, but in doing say they did away with the three sheet manual bypass feed. The manual bypass on this machine is 1 sheet only. However, the paper tray now holds up to 80 sheets of 20# bond, whereas the older model only held up to 50 at a time. Overall the performance on this generation of machine has been greatly enhanced over previous generations.
