I just purchased a Canon Pixma IP8720 inkjet printer and love it for the most part. I am having on problem. Sometimes the bottom of images misprint. I've attached an example photo. I'm thinking it's because the paper isn't completely flat, but any ideas would be helpful. Thanks.

I think you are right about the paper being the cause of the problem. Notice the lower left corner. It shows that the bottom of the printhead or the printhead carrier hit the paper and knocked it out of alignment.

If you cannot "uncurl" the paper the only cure is to use another and more flat paper.
