I looked up the user guide at Dell's website and looked up printing cards.

  • The print side of the cards faces down.
  • The cards are centered on the paper exit tray.
  • You select Automatic, Normal, or Photo print quality.

  • Apparently you need to feed the card stock one page at a time into the printer on TOP of the paper exit try (The card stock will feed in from above the normal paper load try [remove paper from the paper tray] and once printed come back to the same spot.

    How can I get my Avery 8876 business card sheets to feed through my printer?


    Avery is a fairly good name in the business.Brother on the other hand seems to have ignored the reasons why folks don't buy brothers. It's these little annoying things that bigger company's have spent time and energy on. For one there's usually a lever you push to control how much pressure the two fusing rollers push; hot rollers, for years this perplexed the big guys because there all ready is a pretty small tolerance of melting the toner and not burning the paper; melting the toner(powered plastic) next was the ever annoying OHP overhead projector sheets. this is plastic toner on plastic"paper" nightmare! melt the toner but not the plastic its on.... Well enough of engineering issues, time and perseverance paid off. now comes a sticky label on a waxxy surface that is twice as thick as paper and yet has toner to be fixed on it and dried....Some company's like cannon tried a cold roller that seemed to work at first but when things went bad they really went bad.labels coming off all in the wrong places... Toshiba and Savin Ricoh decided to get with Avery and others and make one side harder to come off than the other; reduce the squeeze pressure and increase the opposite "static cling" voltage. Also the angle it hit the feed section// Bypass feed only/Lt-R. Following the printed directions in the individual label sheet seemed to reduce the issue to a minimum. Understanding all the changes the poor piece has to go go through in an 8second processes is half the battle. hope this helps a smidge~~~SC

    I recently switched to a Deskjet 5440 from a Dj 6980. The 5440 cannot seem to feed through envelopes, cards, and it won't properly feed the Avery 8.5x11 business card sheet. I had no problem with the 6980...


    is there a wheel that comes down when you are calling for paper? ther is one that grabs the paper and transports it to the printer rollers. one way is to print a document and when it feeds push the paper into the unit and see if it grabs it

    In printing properties and printing preferences be sure and tell the printer you're printing labels, it allows more time for the card stock to reach the starting point.

    Paper goes through tray 1 the image prints landscape on portait


    Try placing the business card sheet in the main paper bin instead of the manual feed or adjusting the print orientation from Portrait to Landscape or vice versa.

    Avery Ink Jet Magnetic Sheets - 3270


    It worked fine for us on an Epson. We printed about 40 sheets fed one at a time. Do not stack the sheets in the feed hopper, they stick together because of the magnetism.

    There is no template because the material is not die cut. It is just full 8.5x11" sheet size.

    Print Garbage


    The reason your pictures come out dark and grey is that you have not set the paper thickness on your printer. On the back you will see a flip switch change this setting then feed your business card sheet in there and see the diffrence. Plus make sure your settings for your printer are set for a thicker paper this will fix your problem. Make sure though when done printing your cards that you set it back to the normal or you will have problems printing regular paper documents.
