    thanks I have the Avery paper for business cards but my HP printer wont allow me to change the settings to select this type of paper. So what happens is when I print from the cheap business card software I bought (Cosmi)it goes to my printer settings but under preferences there is no where for me to select the Avery paper. And I cant figure out if there is a way to add the paper type to my HP printers configeration. So is it the cheap software, the printer, or just Im not smart enought to figure it out? I work for an engineering firm so I hope its not me LOL.

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.

Try placing the business card sheet in the main paper bin instead of the manual feed or adjusting the print orientation from Portrait to Landscape or vice versa.

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 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

Printing Business Cards on Cardstock


It could be.

Part of the problem with that machine is that it has to bend the paper to get to the inkjets. If its too think it will stop running.

We use this Avery stock for printing business cards that might be a little thinner cardstock. I would look for some recommended for ink jet printers.

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.
