How can I get my printer to print on card stock?

Discussion in 'Microsoft Word Document Management' started by Katherine Onstott, Oct 17, 2009.

  1. I am trying to print on card stock and the paper is too thick. Is there a
    setting for thickness of paper versus size of paper. I am using a HP 4450
    (PhotoSmart).

    You need to ask HP's tech support.

  3. Since a PhotoSmart is presumably designed to print on photo paper, I can't
    imagine that it wouldn't print on card stock, but your manual should give
    specifications for paper thickness and other physical properties
    accommodated by the printer.

    You can see a chart of paper specs at
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3655575&lang=en#N1746

    According to the chart, the printer will handle up to 110-lb. index, but the
    only card sizes provided for are 3 x 5, 4 x 6, and 5 x 8. The limit for
    plain paper (Letter, legal, and A4) is 24 lb.
