Printing on store bought invitations

I cannot print out my document onto a store bought invitation size 3.5" wide and 9.5" long. I changed the paper size and saved it then selected it but when I send it to print it gives me a paper mis-match error and I have to cancel the job. I have chosen both "other specialty paper" and "other specialty greeting card" and neither work. Help!

you have to load the printer driver for HP Deskjet 990c. This worked for me perfectly and I'm sitting here printing my wedding invites right now! Good luck!

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.

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

Invitations printing off center


You need to ensure that you are setting the program and driver for the correct size of paper. The paper does not need to be centered, the software just needs to start printing in the right place.

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.

Make sure you have up to date drivers installed for this printe, if not you need to go to the HP website and download them. Also there are two places you need to change the paper size, in the document page setup as well as select correct paper size in printer settings. Hope this helps.

Paper size


Okay, go to your printer folder Start/Printers Right click on your printer (Officejet 6310) and click on Properties. You will see a button near the bottom called Printing Preferences. Here is where you choose your paper. You can make your choice here and choose to make it your default settings (click Apply to make the new paper your default to print your invitations...you will have to change back after). You may change the quality of print and paper type as well since the default setting won't provide the quality of print you desire. From here it's pretty straight forward. Feed your invitations into the paper tray as you would normal paper and try a test print for quality control. Once you've got the desired output, print the rest of your invitations.

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

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.
