Question about HP Deskjet 3915 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Print Size I am trying to print party invitations on smaller sized paper. I have no problem getting the word document formatted perfectly, but I can't get the printer to print the invitation out properly. If I input the invitation paper along the envelope line (right side), only half the text appears on the invitation and the rest is cut off. If I input the invitation paper in the center of the paper tray, the printer won't pick up the invitation so it obviously doesn't get printed at all.

When I want to make a copy it tells me "Paper size


Hi,

Good day, Regarding the error message that your getting, that means the paper where you want to print that document is not supported by the printer. Usually you'll the see supported paper size if you click the print option or print setup for your printer. The only way to resolve this is to use the appropriate size of paper like.

You can also try this steps to change size for the documents you want to print

>Open the File menu and click Print.
>Click the Settings tab
>Click on Paper Size. A list of paper sizes will appear
>Select the size you want.
>If none of the selections are suitable, select Custom. A box will appear inviting you to set your
own measurements. Enter the width and length that you want.
>Click OK.


These are the usual paper size use. It's 8 1/2 by 11 inches and the other one that you could use in most printers is 8 1/2 by 14. The first one is known as Letter size, the other one is known as Legal size. Hope this information help in resolving your issue. Have a great day.

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.

Paper size mismatch - c5280 hp all-in-one printer


I got around this problem by tricking the printer. The paper sensor, on my printer model hp4500 seems to only sense the paper at the beggining of the print job. What I did to trick the printer to print on odd size paper is slide the paper adjuster to 8.5 and put a regular white sheet in. Then put your odd size paper under it. When you print your document set the number of copies to 2 and print. The printer is going to sense that the paper is correct, and start the job. Here is the tricky part... one the first 8.5x11 sheet is almost all the way through quickly slide the paper adjuster over to match the size of your odd width paper. The printer should pick up the odd paper and print the second copy. Fool you printa! You should be able to do batches of odd paper size under the first 8.5X11 I hope this helps.

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

on the bottom of that screen there should be a scale to paper size drop down box. Scroll to the bottom and your saved name and dimensions should be there.

You will have to setup each individual sized template ones and then just scale to fit each time. Hope this helps

HP Deskjet 5150 print is too small


Printers try to fit web pages on a single sheet of paper. If you configure the printer, in the print dialog, not to shrink images and text to fit the paper, it will print on multiple sheets of paper, but the correct size for the images and text.

In a Word document, it depends on what font size you have selected. Most people would rather have the web page print on a single sheet, with smaller images and text than were on the monitor; than tape together multiple sheets for 100% size printout.

Printing invitations


if you are printing from word 2010 and have an HP printer;
-set up your document on your screen how you want it to look, go into your print preview section, your printer should be listed towards the top of your page and directly under it should be "printer properties" click here, select the features tab in the next window and change your paper size to the correct size for your document.
-you may also need to go into the page layout tab in the main screen, select the size button, click on "more paper sizes" at the bottom of the window, select the paper tab and change the size of your paper again to the size of your document
-lastly, while in the "paper" tab window select "print options" towards the bottom right corner, left side of new screen click on advanced, scroll down to print and make sure there is NOT a check in the box that says "scale content for A4 or 8.5 x 11" paper sizes

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.

Print 5x7 invitations on my 950?


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.
