if you are not printing graphics from the site, try doing a "print pre-veiw first to see if that will help, otherwise it will take a little experimenting with the print settings to find out what will and will not print the way you want it to. try also saving the the page to some thing like notepad or such and then trying to print. good luck!

SOURCE: The top half of letters on certain lines of print

This usually indicates a need for a new print cartridge or the printer head is dirty. You can run the automatic printer cleaning utilities. Note: do them several times.
Also, if you are a little handy, use Qtips and rubbing alcohol and clean the print head.

I was printing on a A4 thick (invitacion Card)


Make sure there is 1/16 to 1/32 inch space on each side of the paper in the paper tray.
Move the paper type selector back and forth 5 times, to make sure it is not stuck.
Feed the tray with a minimum of 20 sheets of paper and try to see if it loads paper through.
The paper thickness lever has two settings, one for plain paper, (thin paper 20# to 24#) and one for envelopes and thick paper.
It should be on the 0 setting for thin paper and on the + setting for thick paper and envelopes.
The paper adjustment lever may be adjusted in between the two settings to accommodate paper that is not standard or that the operating/environmental conditions have changed.
Make sure the paper is loaded far enough into the printer to ensure good contact between the paper and the paper feed mechanism.

How to print 5 X 8 invitations on an HP Photosmart C309a printer


I think it's more or less the same on Mac or PC. Hit Print in your software, then when the dialogue box comes up you should see several options settings. There will be a pull-down menu that lets you choose paper size. (This menu is sometimes buried in another sub menu called "printer options" or something similar. It can be tricky to find this in some apps like Photoshop). Just select your 5x8 size and then at the top of the dialogue box you should be able to save it all as a preset. Pull down the "preset" tab and select "Save As..." then you can name it and pull it up each time later.
Hope this works.

Paper size


Okay, go to your printer folder Start/Printers Right click on your printer (Officejet 6310) and click on Properties. You will see a button near the bottom called Printing Preferences. Here is where you choose your paper. You can make your choice here and choose to make it your default settings (click Apply to make the new paper your default to print your invitations...you will have to change back after). You may change the quality of print and paper type as well since the default setting won't provide the quality of print you desire. From here it's pretty straight forward. Feed your invitations into the paper tray as you would normal paper and try a test print for quality control. Once you've got the desired output, print the rest of your invitations.

How much ink is left?


Tip: If you're printing invitations, you're going to use a lot of ink..get a spare set of ink.
No. There is no way to know how many more pages, because, if you think about it, printing a photo (or invitation), obviously uses far more ink than, say, a letter.

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.
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, 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.

Print 5x7 invitations on my 950?


Change the size of the document on word to a standard sized document - such as 8-1/2 x 11. Then when you go to print the documents, set the printing preferences to print on 5x7 paper. That should do the trick.

Printer switching orientation


Make sure that manual feed is set to letter, on the printer front panel. This is a tabloid printer, so letter size sheets are fed long edge. The cassette will print okay because the media size info for the cassette is read by the printer from the cassette cams.
