    The problem was involving invitations, not envelopes. Your solution had nothing to do with the original problem. I am having the same issue and would like assistance. Thanks....

I am printing on textured paper (wedding invitations) and my hp colorlaserjet CP2025 seems not to print correctly. It looks like the ink is not printing on the textured parts.

I suggest that you go into the Configuration printing menu on the printer and change the paper/media type settings to heavy & press the green enter button. You may have to try a few other different settings if this does not work.

Trying to print wedding invitations that are size 5.50 by 8.50 and keep getting a paper size mismatch error even after changing the setting in the size

The paper size on the printer and the paper size from the software must match.

Look for the owners manual for the printer and loook for the section that describes how to set the paper size on the printer.

Good Luck

I need to feed custom paper into my C5580. It is 8.75" x 5.75" inch cardstock for shower invitations. How do I set up to print on this paper? I keep getting the paper size mismatch error. ...

You'll need to change the paper size in the printer setup options. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. In the software application you're printing from, go to File menu and select "Print."
  2. Open the dialog box that will open the printer's properties, options, setup or preferences (name depends on the software used).
  3. Click the Features tab.
  4. Under Resizing Options in the Size drop-down list, select "More."
  5. Choose "custom paper size" to enter the dimensions of your card stock.
There are other options you may want to tweak to customize the print job for your paper type, resolution, orientation, &c., as well.

Good luck!

I am trying to print a wedding invitation on 5.5" x 8.5" paper and I keep getting paper size problem.can the HPC5180 print that size paper

3 in x 5 in (min) - Legal (8.5 in x 14 in) (max) is the spec per HP. Have you tried to set up the paper size as "custom" in both the driver and the program? This may help if the size you want is not listed in the properties dropdown.

My Kodak ESP3250 printer won't print invitations. It just keeps spitting out the invitation and telling me I have the wrong size paper.

This is common with these printers. When you go to print and the kodak dialog print box comes up you need to change the paper size manually for the printer. The printer does not always take the correct paper size from the program you are printing in if it is a custom document.

another word of advice. USE THE TEST SHEET FIRST. This printer does nto correctly print invitations you need to offset the items about 1 inch to the right or so. Test before you print the real things.

Problem printing on thicker paper

The error that you are getting is telling you that the paper size or type you picked in setup is not what the printer is detecting. Once you verify that you did choose the right type & size, the next thing to check is to make sure the paper path is clear. If a piece of paper is covering a sensor this might cause the message to appear. If you don't see anything in the way, take a can of compressed air and blow out the path.

when you hit 'PRINT' the window that opens up to complete the job will have a button called 'preferences'. Check to see that the paper selected isn't photo paper. You will have you choice of paper type thickness and size.

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.
