Question about HP PSC 1410v All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

Only prints business cards correctly on plain paper, but not on the card stock.

Business cards paper prints 1/2 inch higher than if one uses plain paper.  I have wasted nearly 15 sheets of paper.  When I print the test page it is fine. When I put the cardstock in, it prints 1/2 inch too high.  Changing margins does nothing.  HP tells me it is an MS Works problem.  Ha!  I don't think so, I'm not even printing from that application!  HELP!  The HP techs are no help.

Re: Only prints business cards correctly on plain paper,...

I am the guy with the hp d'jet D2445. I ran out of card stock in failed attempts. Not wanting to give up I bought more (Avery, no serrations) and it worked fine. Don't ask why.

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.

HP Photosmart C4795. Can't get business cards to align correctly at top. Alignment is perfect on plain paper, but starts too high on card stock so every one is lined up wrong. What am I doing wrong? Using...

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.

You may need to have a technician adjust your copier or replace the rollers.

I am printing business cards and I am using thick paper but colors come out dull looking but if I change the paper to PLAIN then the colors come out just perfect, full, vivid and rich but I am afraid that...

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.

I hope this is solves your issue....Violet

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.

HP C4280 incorrect paper feed

Check your printer's capability.

Buy the card stock they recommend.

If all else fails, print on plain and take card stock to a copy shop and have them do it for you.

Walking there beats going nuts over stupid software or hardware problems

Problem printing business cards

I had this problem today and think I've figured it out. Take a sheet of plain paper and two little pieces ot clear 'scotch' tape. Tape the blank sheet behind the business cards at the top/feeder edge and try again. You may need to tweak it a bit more but it stops it from printing so far up.
