      Run the paper thru the laser a few times before printing the PCB image.

      Since it can be a bit hard to print a blank sheet, make a small text file,
      (just a single word will do), and print that to the same page a few times.
      Then print the PCB.

      Movement is caused by water content. When printing the paper dries out, so
      it shrinks or warps a bit.

      You need to use the paper straight away, before it starts absorbing water
      from the air. Don't forget to turn off the steam option on the iron too!
      :)
