Printing 3"x5" note cards

My c5180 prints on 3"x5" notecards perfectly. The problem is getting the cards in and out of the load tray. I am running OS X.5 and MSWord for Mac. In MSWord the paper set up is for t"3x5" notecards I load them from the PAPER TRAY with the 5" side along the right side, and the 3" side against the back stop. But, I have to use a knife to push the backstop border holder (I don't know what they are called) all the way into the machine so that the note cards are flush against the back stop. Getting them out of there (if I loaded too many) is a nightmare and takes 10 minutes or so of inserting different tools through the back of the printer to push the note cards up into the front of the paper tray to where I can use the long knife to pull them out one by one. Should I be using the photo tray? Since that slider DOES push all the way down, and the note cards ARE printed wonderfully, I am thinking that there must be some way to take out the output tray or the paper load or photo tray to be able to access that slider on the 3" side from the front.

SOURCE: tray output

You should configure TRAY 1 as Legal only.
and Tray 2 as plain letter.

Specially when you specify from what tray/paper type to print.

This can be easily configured from the Printer Properties within the Printers and Faxes section of the Control Panel.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Mac Leopard OS: Can't print from photo tray

Here's the trick. It took me an hour to figure this puzzle out myself. DO NOT select the Print icon at the bottom of iPhoto. Do NOT select Print from the File menu. DO select EXPORT from the File menu. Select the HP Photosmart Mac tab Select HP Photosmart Print.app from the app selector. Click the Export button. HP Photosmart Print.app will load with a new print dialog box. Make all necessary selections. This is where you can select the Photo Tray as the tray for the printer to take paper from. This solved MY problem! Let us know if this helps you!

How do I print 3 x 5 cards with my HP C5180?


HP does not recommend printing 3 x 5 cards on this printer. It has a tray for printing 4 x 6 photos but, that is the smallest size available. However, you can set up Microsoft Word to print 3 x 5 cards on regular letter paper and then glue them to the cards. Or you can print them on card stock and cut them out.
Hope this helps. Robert

Can't Print Notecards


I ran into this problem several times. The way I solved it was I drew an arrow on the side of the paper that faced in and up. When you look at the wrong placement, it will tell you which way to place the paper.

Paper does not feed from Tray 1.


Check your printer settings.

Sometimes if your printer or the program you are printing from has the paper source set to "Letter" it waits for you to press the continue key on the printer which allows you to insert headed note paper before printing.

If it is set to letter, change it to A4 and this should solve your problem

You may need to change this in both the printer settings and/or each program from which you are printing
