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 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.

I have Printmaster 10 and 17. On 10, I can print to the edges of the labels and others things, on 17 I can't. I know that I reconfigured 10 to do this, but it was years ago and I can't remember the step...


Custom Paper Wizard PrintMaster® 17 Gold and Platinum include a Custom Paper Wizard that allows you to add new or unsupported paper stock to PrintMaster® for printing labels, stickers, envelopes, half-fold greeting cards, note cards, business cards and postcards. The remainder of this note describes how to use the Custom Paper Wizard. Follow the procedure below to add a new or unsupported paper stock to PrintMaster® 17 Gold or Platinum using the Custom Paper Wizard.

NOTE: The options that appear in the Custom Paper Wizard vary depending on the project type for which you are creating new paper stock.
  1. In the PrintMaster® Design Workspace, click Tools from the menu bar, select Custom Paper Wizard and click New Custom Paper. The Custom Paper Wizard window will open.
  2. In the Select Stock Type: list box, select the appropriate project type (Label, Sticker, Business Card, Envelope, 1/2-Fold Greeting Card, Note Card or Postcard) and click Next.
  3. If creating a Label or Sticker paper stock, select the label type. An example of the selected label type will appear on the right.
  4. Click Next.
  5. In the screen that appears, select the similar stock type and enter the paper height, width and margins (if instructed to do so).

    NOTE: The Example box at the bottom of the Custom Paper Wizard window will explain what information is needed for the selected field (e.g., Paper Width, Left Margin, etc.) with both text and a diagram. The Example box on the left side of the Custom Paper Wizard window will show an example of the new paper stock as the fields are completed.

  6. Depending on the paper stock, the "Contains mid-page perforation" box may be active. If the paper stock that is added has a mid-page perforation, click once in the empty box to check it.
  7. Enter a Name for the new paper stock in the Name of stock: field and click Next. This name will identify the added stock type and will appear when creating a new project (e.g., Label, 1/2-Fold Greeting Card, etc.).

    NOTE: If adding a new paper stock for an Envelope project type, click Finish. A message will appear indicating that the new stock has been added. Click OK. The new envelope paper stock can be used when creating a new Envelope project.

  8. The next screen or screens that show will depend on the project type for which the new paper stock is added. Enter the needed information and click Finish. A message will appear stating that the new paper stock has been added.
  9. Click OK.
  10. To access the new paper stock, create a new project that uses the stock type (Label, 1/2-Fold Greeting Card, etc.) and select the name of the new stock entered in Step 7 (above) from the available stock list.
NOTE: If the paper stock that is added does not display in the list, click or go to Custom Paper Stock Does Not Display (Technical Note ID: 43399) for additional information.

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.

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.
