Re: I CAN'T PRINT INVITATION SIZE (4.5" X 5.6" APPROX)...
Unfortunately you've posted this under the wrong printer model so I can't offer any detailed help (I'd suggest you repost under the correct model number in future).
That said, HP officejet printers have a history with paper feeding and yours may be no different.. Small or envelope style media may be prone to jamming or problems with the rollers failing to pick up the media.
If this sort of printer is essential to you I would recommend getting a different printer like a Canon iP4500 or similar... The rear path and envelope handling on those models is significantly better although it's not so clever at recognising all media sizes as well as I'd like.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

3 in x 5 in (min) - Legal (8.5 in x 14 in) (max) is the spec per HP. Have you tried to set up the paper size as "custom" in both the driver and the program? This may help if the size you want is not listed in the properties dropdown.
In addition to the wide variety of standard paper sizes available for this printer, you can use custom size
paper in the Tray 1 (MPT).
The size range for custom size media is as follows:
Minimum allowable page size:
89 x 140 mm (3.5 x 5.5 in.) Maximum allowable page size:

Open Tray 1 (MPT).
Insert the custom size paper and adjust the guides to match the size of the paper. Place the side to
be printed facedown with the top of the page entering the printer first.

I'm printing wedding invitation envelopes (or A6) and had to set both my C4480 and psc1315 to a regular size 8.5x11 letter size but changed my margins to reflect the smaller size for my envelope with the left side of the screen being the more narrow margin. After adjusting the top margin accordingly, I fed the envelopes, flap side down and straight into the printer and voila...envelope addresses are printed. Good luck.
First customize the paper size in the Page Setup. Secondly when you send command for print, change the paper size to custom size from the Printer Properties and click print. On the other hand, you can select the paper size from the printer's menu itself after sending the print command. Please make sure that the right driver of the printer is installed on your computer.
I have an hp photosmart c4480 and was having the same problem printing wedding invitations. Same size 5.5"x8.5'. Im not sure if this will work on your printer, but this is what I had to do.
Click on Print, then Properties, then features. About half way down there is a drop down box under sizing options. Click on custom Create a name, and put your width and height in. Click Save and then OK Completely X out of the print options. Then Click File, print, properties,features, click the drop down box under sizing options. Click more and scroll to the bottom and it should be there.
If your options are different then mine, I'm sorry for wasting your time.
