What you will see
230.03 paper jam occurs whenever a media with pre-punched hole is used.
Sheets with pre-punched holes may form edge welds and are more likely to stick together, thus making it difficult to feed. This results in multi-feeds which may lead to a paper jam. See the images below:

This issue can usually be fixed by flexing or fanning both ends of the paper to break the bonds of the edge welds, thus making sure none of the sheets stick together. Follow the illustration below:
