I bought 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 card stock to print an invitation. I can't figure out how to load the card stock into to the printer. It seems that it only recognizes 8 1/2 by 11 even when I chage the printer page options in the computer. Any ideas?

I recently purchased an OKI specifically for my stationery business as well (using metallic cardstock) and the company told me that no OKI printers work on metallic paper... I am STILL on the search for an invitation printer! Its frustrating to say the least....
Nothing to adjust feed mechanics. If it's temporaly print, you must feeed paper 1 by 1, and when printer grab paper, push paper by hand. If it's routine print, you can adjust the pick up rubber at paper feedr mechanic. Add double tape ( 1 mm, soft) below top rubber. I have done it, and printer can grab/feed paper up to 350 grams.
Yes and no. Unless you have a printer that prints on two sides you will have to "trick" it and use the template for both. Make a front and a back. You will have to print one one side then inset it to print on the other side. Since all printers feed difrently you will have to play with this on scrap first before using your good card stock. For example I made invitations to a wedding. The couple wanted a pcture on the fornt. On my template I had to rotate the picture upside down so when it was folded in half the picture wa right side up. It also had a raised rose on the invitations so I had to adjust the image so it would print in the empty are on the front. I then had to do the inside text and makes sure the paper was inserted correctly as not to print upside down. You can do it but it is tricky, that is why I recommend some scrap paper first. Good Luck.
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.
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.
Change the size of the document on word to a standard sized document - such as 8-1/2 x 11. Then when you go to print the documents, set the printing preferences to print on 5x7 paper. That should do the trick.
