SOURCE: paper jam
Check for anything small stuck between the rollers, like a tiny fragment of paper, or any other debris. Clean it with a can of compressed air, if possible. Hold the printer upside down and gently try to shake off anything that may be inside. Sometimes you may have to dismantle the cover to check properly.
Clean the roller with a damp cloth and wait for the rollers to dry completely before trying to print again.
Make sure you have selected the correct paper type and quality from the printer properties.

Yes, the roller system will only open wide enough for semi thick cardstock. If you read through you're manual you'll find the recommended card stock you can use. HP supports HP paper.
Here is a list of supported HP paper.
See the user manual on page 45.
Papers to avoid when printing
It would not hurt to remove the rear door & clean the rollers. (No soap). Dried soap film will cause paper to stick to the rollers. You can go to Wallmart or a local hardware store & buy a bottle of Grease Lighting. This heavy duty cleaner (When dry), does not leave any soap film. Great for cleaning just about anything.

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.

check this out....when the printer reports the jam, open the paper tray very carefully and slowly.
Has the paper moved at all forward? Has it moved like 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch out of the tray?
If so, you probabaly need a torque limiter, no tools, $10 or so and a very very easy fix.
POBCM is very correct when he points out that the block/stop in the back of the tray moves when the tray is closed with too much force and this is the #1 cause most of the time.
You may see a "41.3" code displayed if the block is not up to the back of the paper and the paper is not all the way forward in the trays, and under the two metal clips at the front of the tray.
