    64-105 gr refer to the specs, for plain paper in the IP3000 service manual. Of course no photo paper deserving this name would be as light as 105gr/sq.meter
    My guess is that the limits of paper handling are imposed by thickness and, depending on the paper feed path, also rigidity of the media.
    Possibly a printer capable of handling photo paper of 350g won't cope with plain cardboard of the same weight, which will be thicker and more stiff.

    Density, thickness, "rigidty", and the composition of the "paper" play a role. Resistance to feeding such as due to friction may tax paper handling, for example feeding an unrolled roll of otherwise in-spec paper. Paper handling seems a multifactorial issue simplified by following the manufacturer's specifications.

    Yes, we know this already. My request for you to post a link to your specs was to see if more information was available, as in the link I posted and then quoted. You might have shortchanged yourself on the specs available and therefore your understanding of potential paper handling.
