Need to print a half-fold card envelope with HP Photosmart C4480

I have been trying for hours to print a simple half-fold size greeting card envelope using the HP C4480 all-in-one printer. Even their tech support didn't know what I was talking about. He kept asking me what kind of paper, then directed me to hp article on how to do a quarter fold. I tried to use the custom size, and it still gave me error messages on incorrect size. Please, help if anyone can.

    I was using the American Greetings website, but have tried Micorsoft picture it publishing, and even entering the dimensions for the envelope in custom setting, I still got paper mismatch. I have been here all day trying to figure it out. Seems there are many other people frustrated with this problem...HP tech support has been no help at all...I uninstalled and installed the printer, didn't know why he even told me to do that...

    I have the same problem, I use American greeting card and cannot print any envelopes for the cards. I can only print a #10 enveope and only when I go to Microsoft works. I have contacted HP also and can't get any one to solve the problem. I had no problem with my old printer when printing half card and quarter card envelopes. Pleas someone help, this is getting frustrating. Thanks in advance to anyone that helps.'It is a HP Photosmart all in one C4480

    What program are you using to create this card?

    Do you have access to MS-Publisher? Or,
    How about Print Shop Deluxe?

    Let me now what the program is and I'll tell you how to setup your paper configuration.

    use corel draw, and you'll find out it's great, you can customize any paper size you wish just specify your paper size, then look for print preview... you can drag which part of an image you want to print, where to print top or bottom

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. Blu

Can't print envelopes made by "Greeting Card Factory" v7 on an HP B209a-m. Cards (.fgc file) print OK but envelopes (.fev files) won't print (envelope won't go into the print area; spoolvs.exe take 99% of...


The problem centered around the fact that the HP209 would only print 8.5X11 sheets from Greeting Card Factory. Any other size seized up the pring spool.

We're going to return the HP (We think it's defective) and get an Epson.

Mismatch paper size error


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
on the bottom of that screen there should be a scale to paper size drop down box. Scroll to the bottom and your saved name and dimensions should be there.

You will have to setup each individual sized template ones and then just scale to fit each time. Hope this helps

Paper mismatch


Hi kingwa55,

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.

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.

HP psc 1315 all in one-printing cards


Make sure you check the settings in the print driver. Sounds like your paper size settings do not match the size of the paper that you are printing onto and you are actually getting a false jam because the machine is seeing a different size paper then you ahve in it.
