The grips of the stacked paper stack and the positioning edges of the side gauges should be flat, without obvious unevenness, and the surface of the paper stack should be flat without obvious wave-shaped undulations. The purpose of the paper stack is to flatten the paper stack to meet the needs of smooth and high-speed continuous paper feeding. Stacking paper neatly is the most basic prerequisite for magazine prints.
