Printer "holds on" to card stock at the bottom of page

When printing on card stock, the printer starts off perfectly. When it get to the last few lines, the printer "holds on" to the paper the prints them on top of one another. I have checked the rollers in the back of the machine, turned it off and on, cleaned some things; to no avail. Help!

Yes..depending on the card stock, that can happen quite frequently. you may find that one at a time is needed, or placing a thinner sheet of paper, between the sheets, can help..most printers don't have ability to manage varying thicknesses of paper, unless printer settings are changed.

no worries..start by getting new driver for that here

I have an HP Photosmart A646 printer that I bought in the hopes of printing to 5x7 card stock. We have pre-printed card stock that we use for gift certificates and we need to be able to feed the card stock...


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Depending on the program you are using to print your gift certificates, try this-

1) Open the program and open the file you use for your gift certificate.
2) Click on 'Layout' then 'Page Set Up' (probably found in the top menu bar by the right side of, FILE.)
3) Select 'Landscape' and then select, 'Custom'.
4) Enter 5x7 for height and width.
5) Enter the information you need in the data field, (ie, name address, etc.)
6) Select, Print.
7) When the 'Print Manager' box opens, click on, 'Properties'.
8) Click on, 'Type' and choose, "Envelope'.
9) Click on, 'Size' and choose 5x7. - and click, OK.

Your printer should have a slide where the paper is inserted. Place one of the 5x7 cards in the slot just as you would an envelope and slide the slider until it is 'close' to the card but not directly against the card.

Click, 'Print'. The printer should recognize the card (due to its thickness) as an envelope and print 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.

Print wedding announcements and the print is not straight


Card stock on an HP can be a nuisance, due to the paper feed path. The stock has to curl around the platen.
Some things to check: Make sure you are telling the print driver you are using card stock. It should be in the printing preferences as paper type. The printer will respond differently, knowing it has the heavier paper. Also make sure that your paper guides are adjusted to fit the smaller stock. Just putting in 5.5 x 8.5 paper into an 8.5 x 11 tray may cause it to skew.
I am assuming that you are already telling it to print high quality, as it is for a wedding announcement, but make sure that you are. Slowing down the paper feed speed by putting it into high quality mode can help.
Your printer is an older model, so it could be that the rollers are wearing down, and it just can't feed the last bit as well. You could try to print it in "landscape" mode. Turn the paper 90 degrees in the paper tray, so that the 8.5" is the feed side. This will allow the printer to have a better grip on the paper as it goes through. A word of caution with this method, though. HP's have a 1/2 inch margin at the bottom of the paper where it can't print. Turning the paper 90 degrees will force you to have a side margin of 1/2 inch. Currently, your bottom margin has to be 1/2 inch. I don't know what your layout looks like, so I don't know if you can turn the paper.
If you are the one getting married, the congratulations, good luck, and mazel tov! (Have to cover all the basis).

Information on how to use rear feed


1. Prepare your doc/file for printing.
2. Insert card stock with narrow side of stock in slot in back of printer until it hits rollers and stops. Don't force in any card stock thicker than max. rated.
3. Change printer setup to feed from rear.
4. Print.

Depending on what software you print from, you may need to change this each time you print if you intend to keep printing from that "tray."

Paper jam error in the output does not allow printing


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Text is "ghosting" when using card stock


I sort of solved my ghosting problem by selecting print, set up, and then under media type selected thicker paper. This apparently pulls the card stock through at a slower rate which helped tremendously. One of my documents turned out perfect and the other "ghosted" just a little.
