Business Card Spot Color

I would like to be able to take a business card, scan it and be able to print in two colors (Even if the business card supplied is in 1-4 colors) as an add on a placemat. It will be printed on a Riso 2 color duplicator. I have been in printing 25 years (4-color) but I know nothing about the pre-press side. Need some advice.
Example: I want the logo, phone number, web address in one color and all the rest as a second color, all depending on the colors I have on the printing press. Can anyone help me as to what software I might need?
Thank You

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printing text but not colour graphics

First try printing in another program. (something that has color in it) If you can print color in another program then the problem is Hallmark. If you still cannot then your probably out of color ink or it dried up.

Hope this helps.

Business cards get stuck in HP 4650

The card stock is most likely too heavy for the 4600. If you check the owners manual, you will most likely find this is "Out of media specifications".

Other color HP laser printers like the 2500 cannot move card stock well either.

HP will tell you that 'if the printer moves paper perfectly' it's not broken.

Spot 2 color

Photoshop. Or, Corel PhotoPaint.
If the logo is in process color, you will need to make new color breaks. To do this, you need to have an application designed for manipulating pixels. Photoshop is the end all be all. Photopaint is cheaper, but definitely more convoluted.
You could attempt recreating the art, or having someone do it for you.
