Question about HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I'm trying to print business cards on 100lb Astropaque smooth finish cardstock, and the paper keeps jamming after pulling it partway into the printer. I tried changing the paper type in the "paper" options, but nothing worked. (I didn't see any selection for cardstock) Am I just using too heavy a cardstock for this printer?
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.

It could be.
Part of the problem with that machine is that it has to bend the paper to get to the inkjets. If its too think it will stop running.
We use this Avery stock for printing business cards that might be a little thinner cardstock. I would look for some recommended for ink jet printers.
