Hi,
After you Choose "Print", make sure "Pages from 1 to 1" is checked (not 'All') in the printer dialog box. If you don't, it may try to print out 3 pages.
*IMPORTANT* In your printer setup, remove the header and footer info
and set the top and bottom margins to the lowest setting to insure all 3

cards print out.In a HP printer, minimum top setting is 0.25/bottom 0.46.



Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution

Try reseting the printers settings into defaults, its in the menu if your printer has a lcd screen that is.

also if that doesnt solve the problem some settings have been changed on the pc side, would need to figure out what exactly has changed or who has changed them.

I have an HP Photosmart A646 printer that I bought in the hopes of printing to 5x7 card stock. We have pre-printed card stock that we use for gift certificates and we need to be able to feed the card stock...


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Depending on the program you are using to print your gift certificates, try this-

1) Open the program and open the file you use for your gift certificate.
2) Click on 'Layout' then 'Page Set Up' (probably found in the top menu bar by the right side of, FILE.)
3) Select 'Landscape' and then select, 'Custom'.
4) Enter 5x7 for height and width.
5) Enter the information you need in the data field, (ie, name address, etc.)
6) Select, Print.
7) When the 'Print Manager' box opens, click on, 'Properties'.
8) Click on, 'Type' and choose, "Envelope'.
9) Click on, 'Size' and choose 5x7. - and click, OK.

Your printer should have a slide where the paper is inserted. Place one of the 5x7 cards in the slot just as you would an envelope and slide the slider until it is 'close' to the card but not directly against the card.

Click, 'Print'. The printer should recognize the card (due to its thickness) as an envelope and print it.

What is the maximum paper weight allowable for the HP LaserJet 2840 printer? I am printing recipe cards but 4x6 or 3x5 cards are too heavy and the printer won't take them.


Handle a variety of business needs. Spend less time loading
paper with an input capacity of up to 375 sheets. A 125-sheet
multipurpose tray and a 250-sheet paper tray offer easy
access to a variety of paper finishes, sizes, and types,
including labels and envelopes, at weights of up to 47 lb
(177 g/m2) and HP laser glossy and photo papers up to 70 lb
(220 g/m2).1

When I print pictures on the 3210 HP all-in-one, they come out very small even though I choose the 4X6 in paper size for the photo tray. I've tried everything I can, but the pictures keep printing wallet...


First thing that comes to mind is that a 4x6" print could print four wallet sized photos; be shure your are not printing more than one copy.

If you are trying to print more than one,it will print the actual picure you have and leave space for the number of other nonexistent prints selected.

See page 75 of the Manual. for directions on how to set up photo printing.

If you have photoshop, you can resize your documents using the menu item, Image / Image size, (Alt + i then i again)

Set the resolution to 300, then the document size width to 6 or 10 inches.

This will guarantee that your document is full size, (though the printer should be able to resize it to fit on the page no matter what).

Give these a try. It's really a shot in the dark, but it's my best guess.

Cheers.
Richard.

Instructions on printing a 4 x 6 card or photo on my HP 4280 All in One printer. How to I set up the printer?


At the printer:
1. Remove any paper from the input tray
2. Put a few sheets of 4x6 (10 or so) in the same tray
3. Adjust the paper holder bar so that the 4x6 paper stays straight in place. The holder bar was holding the 8x11 paper in place.

On the computer:
Open a picture
Seect [File] [Print]
Select the photo printer from the list
Cick on [Preferences]
See the paper type? select photo paper
See the paper size? Select 4x6
Quality (Best)
[OK]
[PRINT]

Hello

Yes, there is no 4x6 choice, you have to input costume size.
For the bord-less part, i first would recommend to use a little bigger costume size so if paper with is 20 mm and there is a boarder about 1-3 mm then input costume size 23 mm. Caution, this can cause a paper jam, because there is a solenoids, what read paper. or you can use a bigger paper and later cut off the boards. Because this printer is not capable printing board-less photos
