did you check any of Mrs.Apple Cider’s posts on using the wood grain paper?  She may have some advice about it since they did thier own printing on it.

You may have to feed the sheets one at a time by hand. On our old (12 year old) printer that was the only way to do it, so I camped out next to it with a glass of wine for a couple hours. Once we got a new printer, we could put about 25 sheets in the feeder at a time and it wouldn’t jam. You might want to try cleaning the inside of the printer as well, that might help it grab and feed the thick sheets more easily.

I work with Gmund’s Savanna in the studio on a regular basis… We use pre-press giclee printers, but it is possible to use the heavyweight woodgrain paper in most desktop inkjets if each sheet is fed individually, as cola suggests. If your printer gives you the option to feed the paper straight through the back (rather than down through a vertical tray) you’ll probably have an easier time getting the paper to feed properly. I don’t recommend using a woodgrain paper in a laser printer – toner tends to flake off of the textured surface.
