Printing Business Cards

I'm trying to print business cards using Avery's Clean Edge Business Cards model 8869 using my HP Photosmart C4385. I'm using the template in Word that's suggested on the package (8371) with the Avery Wizard, but they print out misaligned. I'm printing horizontal cards, and the image drifts more and more up and to the left with each line. The first line isn't even correctly aligned! I've also manually filled the downloaded template rather than using Avery's Wizard. Any ideas? The feeder is not skewed.

    I'm trying to print Avery 8253 stickers, and constructed the web page with the Avery wizard. The resulting printout is severely misaligned. I've wasted two sheets of labels. I guess this is a trick by avery to make more money.

My problem with alignment was caused by the printer being set to the wrong paper size (A4 not letter). This may not be a solution to the first problem.

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.

Its most likely the paper you are printing on. It sounds like this is an ink printer. The way ink works is that it is absorbed into the paper you are printing on. Some paper pulls the ink too far into the paper causing it to look dull and faded. You need to make sure you are printing on paper that is designed for inkjet printers. There are a lot of companies that make special paper designed for printing your own business cards. I prefer Avery products since they have a guarantee.

Check this link out for some options on InkJet business card options.

Printer problem


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

I cant print business cards on my hp c5280


Verify no pieces of the card paper are missing and try printing on plain paper to make sure. Then try new card paper and make sure none of the perforations are separated.

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.
