Change your paper size on your document in the printer settings and page setup settings to match the business card.

What's the best paper to use in printing postcards?


I've been printing postcards for like five years now. And based on my experience, the best way to go about that is to print postcards using sturdy cardboard stocks coated on both sides for a high-gloss surface. This medium is best for shipping and for advertising purposes.

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.

I am printing postcards which get stuck in the printer during the last 2 inches of printing. What can I do to fix this? The printer is HP officejet 6110 all-in-one.


How stiff is the card stock? Some cards cannot feed if the printer rolls the card to print on it. (This one does)
I have taped cards to a full size sheet of paper and run that through.
Usually this means the paper is too stiff.
You can try cleaning the paper feedroller with a rag with a bit of windex on it. (This roller is above the paper tray where the paper loads in.)

KM C252 - I'm trying to print postcards on 110 lb cardstock, but the ink doesn't stick. It made a huge mess.


You need to set the paper settings to a HIGHER weight/gsm. It is running for thinner stock so the toner is not fusing to the paper properly. you will need to use a thick 3 at least.

Postcard printing


You should find the proper setting under the "Layout" tab of the printer properties. Check the box "Cpombination" and from there you can select "2-IN-1". Make sure you use the bypass tray and select the appropriate thick paper for the weight. Lining up side 1 with side 2 is not guaranteed with paper above 210 g/m2 (thick 3) Hope this helps.

Printing faded color text on my color paper...


That stock might be too heavy for a bizhub.

Specifications state the following:

Plain paper (16 lb to 24 lb),
thick paper 1 (24-1/4 lb to 40 lb),
thick paper 2 (40-1/4lb to 55-1/2 lb),
thick paper 3 (55-3/4 lb to 68 lb),
thick paper 4 (68-1/4 lb to 72 lb)*, OHP transparencies*, postcards*, letterheads,
colored paper, envelopes*, label sheets*, banner paper (24-1/4 lb to 55-1/2 lb)*
Duplex: Plain paper (17 lb to 24 lb), thick paper1/2/3 (24 lb to 68 lb
*Can only be fed through the bypass tray.

These specs are directly from the user guide.

Is the paper running through the bypass tray?

Postcards causing printer jam


I think the card is too heavy or too thick for the machine as when it prints it has to turn the paper. If the card is too rigid it is unable to bend causing a paper jam. Suggestion is to try a less grade of card.

Printing postcards


Hi, You can print postcards in either the manual tray (1) or Tray 2 . But if you have a tray three installed you cannot print postcards,envelopes, etc... I recommend printing them from the manual tray and what you can do is either in your printer setting on your pc adjust which trays you want to use for printingpostcards. Or you can use the printers menu and go to paper handling and manual select which paper sizes you wish to use in each tray.

Printing card


Postcards, 3-by-5 inch (index) cards, and other custom-sized media can be printed from tray 1. The minimum media size is 76 by 127 mm (3 by 5 inches) and the maximum media size is 216 by 356 mm (8.5 by 14 inches). Note You might experience some jams when using any media with a length less than 178 mm (7 inches). This might be caused by paper that has been affected by environmental conditions. For optimum performance, make sure you are storing and handling the paper correctly . Using media from another manufacturer might also help. Printing on odd sizes or weights of media (for example, small, long, or narrow paper) can decrease print speed. The decreased speed helps to prolong the life of internal printer parts. It also improves print quality with these types of media. Guidelines for printing on custom-sized media and cardstock Always insert the short-edge first into tray 1. If you want to print in landscape mode, make this selection through your software. Inserting paper long-edge first might cause a jam. Use the rear output bin to reduce curl. Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm (3 inches) wide or 127 mm (5 inches) long. In your software application, set margins at least 6.4 mm (0.25 inch) away from the edges of the media.
