An enhanced printing paper capable of identifying direction

In our life sometimes we need to copy both sides(the front and back) of a card or something else on one side of a printing paper by single-side copy machine, however, this may cause the trouble of "overlapping " or "disordering"(as show in Fig2 and Fig3) as most people maybe have a problem to decide how to put the printed paper back into the duplicator after one side is copied . It will cause a waste of paper.

Our solution is to make one marker at one side border of printing paper as reference flag . The marker should avoid to be at the middle of the side(should close to one end of that side). This marker can help to distinguish the left and right , front and back direction of the printing paper, so when someone prints 2 sides of a card on one side of a printing paper by single-side copy machine, he can place the printing paper back to copier by just simply aligning it according to the marker on the printing paper.

For a normal printing paper, there are 4 options to put the paper back which will make 2 major mistakes. The correct result is Figure 1 and the unexpected results are described as figure 2 and 3(Other mistakes are small probability events, not discussed here):
