Hi Harold,

Most laser printers automatically adjust not the temperature so much as the speed at which the media travels through the fuser when thicker stock is used.

The important thing here is to make sure that when you are using card stock that you insure that the printer is set for the correct "PAPER TYPE" from the tray you are using.

When the paper type is set to card stock, you should notice that the media will print somewhat slower, thus giving the fuser the ability to achieve the correct fusing temperature through the thicker stock.

Good luck

Why is my hp 5610v not printing on cardstock?


Are you print through manual bypass? If not try doing it that way. Card stock is very thick and by using manual bypass it doesn't require as many turns for the card stock.

Phaser 7400 bypass feeder feeding cardstock much too fast


You need to make sure you set the proper paper type for the tray you are using. (Plain Paper feeds much faster than card stock)

Also recommend you use the bypass tray and open the rear door so the cardstock goes straight out the back of the machine and not delivered to the top.

I have an oki c9650 when I print on cardstock the blacks become bubbly and flake off, but only when printing on cardstock


Set it or computer, whatever you are using to cardstock, or it may be called thick,there are multiple selections depending on the media. Beacuase thick paper requires slower speed and hotter fuseing.

I am trying to print a note card measuring 8 5/8 x 6, with a half fold on the long side. What document size do I choose so it prints when it goes through?


You can adjust the page size in the software application you are creating your document with. By doing this the printer should enable you to print your document. You can also choose to input a customized size. Make sure you choose the cardstock setting so the printer will not cause a paper jam, and it will be able to heat the fuser up enough so the toner will stick to the card stock.

When i copy on cardstock the color comes out flacking with semi-circles in the images.


This is caused by the printer not applying enough heat to the card so the toner cannot fuse correctly.

One solution to this is to select "Card" in paper type on the printer driver and this will slow down the printer and allow the fusing unit to apply more heat.

Also please check what weight card your machine is designed to work with, if your card is over weight !! you will more than likely always have issues with it.

Also some types of card stock have a gloss finish, this can also cause problems with the toner fusing correctly.

Try some lighter weight card if none of the solutions above help.

Looking for $500 copier for cardstock printing. What do you recommend?


'Cardstock' is 50lb and up...and I get the impression that you're talking about more than 50lb stock. That machine only runs up to 24lb. I think you may want to research a little more. No machine of that size/price will run "cardstock". That's why I said "good luck"

Looks like toner is not sealed to the paper.


the machine is only designed for 80gsm paper. you can change paper type through printer options in printer manager to card stock. it wil probably not work though as it is really only designed for 80gsm paper. the toner need to be heated to 200oC inorder to fuse to the paper cardstock absorbs less heat than normal paper.

Printing Business Cards on Cardstock


It could be.

Part of the problem with that machine is that it has to bend the paper to get to the inkjets. If its too think it will stop running.

We use this Avery stock for printing business cards that might be a little thinner cardstock. I would look for some recommended for ink jet printers.

Ink smudges when printing cards


If you are using cardstock you have to tell machine that you are using thick paper. Place cardstock in bypass select paper size then select thick 2 or thick 3 as paper type.

This increases trasfer charge ,increases fusing temperature ensuring image is bonded to card stock paper.
No more smudging
