Printing jammed on thicker paper

Hi i have a samsung clp300 laser printer
im trying to print some engagement invites so the paper is of the thicker texture (as you would with cards) but when i load it in the tray the printer keeps jamming up. does this mean i can only print with normal paper and not thicker textured ones??? is there any way i can change the settings or the paper tray so it can print?

Re: printing jammed on thicker paper

See the manual. It looks as if 120g/m2 is the heaviest paper it can use:
"Set Type to correspond to the paper loaded in the tray from
which you want to print. This will let you get the best quality
printout. If not, print quality may not be acheived as you want.
Thin: Less than 19 lb (70 g/m2) thin paper.
Thick: 24 lb to 32 lb (90~120 g/m2) thick paper.
Cotton: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) cotton paper such as Gilbert
25 % and Gilbert 100 %.
Plain Paper: Normal plain paper. Select this type if your printer is
monochrome and printing on the 16 lb (60 g/m2) cotton paper.
Recycled: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) recycled paper.
Color Paper: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) color-backgrounded

There are many reasons that causes this printer to stop printing, like empty toner cart, full waste toner cart, paper jam. The only way to know for sure is to use the smart panel program to see what the printer is sensing as a problem and go from there. Hope this helps.

Clp300 paper jamming

Section one is usually the bypass ( the front tray that you have to open the door)
it is trying to print from there
otherwise clean the tires in the tray area with alcohol, they probably contain dust and the paper is slipping.
