Bed temperature is important, apparently, but bed leveling is more critical. I had warping which "pulled" the prints off the deck if they got too long, scraping them - and fixed it by getting the bed leveling right. The "sheet of paper" method I found clumsy because when you are talking about small fractions of a millimetre it was difficult to work out if the tension was the same across the whole bed. So I used my dial test indicator and a clamp to get actual numbers of how far out of true the bed was, and the paper to get a distance at the "closest point" - the bed centre for me. Took a while to do as each adjustment screw warped the bed and changed other corners, but since I got it done, I haven't had a problem.

Oh, and let the prints cool right down before removing them - definitely below 40C, but <30C is even better. They come off easier and don't distort in removal.

[edit]
And another thing I forgot: clean the bed. Get some Isopropyl Alcohol (Amazon[^] sells it at 99.9% purity in a spray bottle) and a clean lint free cloth. Mine arrived with a very thin layer of yellow gunk I couldn't see which the Isopropyl removed nicely along with the Sellotape / Scotch tape / Durex tape which held the paper to it in shipment. Removing that helped with adhesion as well!
