Re: Printing postcards

Hi, You can print postcards in either the manual tray (1) or Tray 2 . But if you have a tray three installed you cannot print postcards,envelopes, etc... I recommend printing them from the manual tray and what you can do is either in your printer setting on your pc adjust which trays you want to use for printingpostcards. Or you can use the printers menu and go to paper handling and manual select which paper sizes you wish to use in each tray.

What's the best paper to use in printing postcards?

I've been printing postcards for like five years now. And based on my experience, the best way to go about that is to print postcards using sturdy cardboard stocks coated on both sides for a high-gloss surface. This medium is best for shipping and for advertising purposes.

I need to print 6"x11" postcards with some protective coating on it?

From what I know, most digital printers can't do that. Digital printing requires heat that may damage the coating. If you want, you can just buy ready to use papers with coating from the store and print them using your digital printer. But the other way to go about is to print postcards from a reliable printing company like PritnRunner. They do postcards using matte aqueous coating that protects your print from smudges and fingerprints. Here's their site:

Hi Robyn

The only realistic choice here is for you to chalk this episode down to experience, buy some new photo paper of the correct type to produce your preferred outcome and then do another print run of the postcards.

I always advise, when printing on exotic papers and even when producing ink intensive printing on ordinary paper, to print a single test copy first and then study the result, rather than completing the entire print run in one go.

Because of the lack of absorbency on the reverse side of the paper you used, I would also recommend temporarily putting the printer settings back to regular paper and printing a test page, so the micro-nozzles on the print head are cleared of any excess ink. If the test page is not perfect, then also run your printer's Print Head Cleaning maintenance tool. Then reset the printer back to photo printing for another run at your postcards.

Good luck.

I hope this helps.

Ink from my deskjet 5650 smears off my glossy postcards.

Hello there jbaerpynes.

You must use HP branded glossy paper in this particular printer as recommended by the manufacturer. Because HP ink is much finer than most other inkjet printers, the ink sometimes does not set in properly on generic papers, especially glossy ones, and can smear right off.

Try new paper and get back to me. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to comment on my post. If I helped you, please give me a positive rating.

Error - printer part are at the end of service life, see printing

I have had a R300 for a while now and had a few cartridges in it. Recently a message came up on the screen 'parts inside your printer are at the end of their life' and the printer refused to work!
After searching the web it appears to be a waste ink counter, but I could not find any info on resetting it.
So I tried pressing different combinations of buttons on the printer and success.

Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds, a message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn off.

Thats it turned my printer back on and all works fine again.

I hope this helps R300 owners out!

Postcard printing

You should find the proper setting under the "Layout" tab of the printer properties. Check the box "Cpombination" and from there you can select "2-IN-1". Make sure you use the bypass tray and select the appropriate thick paper for the weight. Lining up side 1 with side 2 is not guaranteed with paper above 210 g/m2 (thick 3) Hope this helps.

Printing Blank Disc

Have you tried re-installing the printer on your PC? Other than that, I'm not sure what else to try. I have been using three pf2s over the last year and don't recall experiencing a problem like that.
