I just use glossy cards from Avery. seems to do the best for me. not sure the thickness. I personally like thicker just cause I know cards get put in places they should then they have a better chance of survival in their life span haha.

I wish to use my HP Photosmart C8180 to print heavy weight cardstock... is there a setting that I can select to do this?


Step Three: Check the paper type Verify that only recommended paper is being used for printing. The recommended paper types and weights for most HP printers include:
  • Plain paper, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Legal size paper, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Card stock, up to a maximum of 110 lb (200 gsm)
  • Envelopes, 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 gsm)
  • Photo paper, 145 lb (236 gsm)
NOTE: Supported paper weights and types vary by product. Check the Specifications sheet for your product for more information.

If you use card stock up to a maximum of 110lb then there should be no special mode to enter to print on this type of paper. Photo paper weighs in at 145 lb maximum which is heavier and can be printed on without selecting any special 'mode.'

Good luck on printing on heavy card stock.

I want a print on card thickness paper , will a hp-5600 series print ?


Theoretically yes, but it's too close to limit. Try, but you have a 50% chances of paper blockage inside the unit.

Printers are only able to use paper that is within their thickness threshhold. Simply put, the stock you are using is too think for your printer. Try getting some thinner paper and see if that works

When setting the paper in the by pass/manual tray did you select the thickness settings example thick 1 thick 2 think 3 ??? based of the weight of the paper you will need to select a thickness. If you still have an issue with this than I would inspect the fuser for damage.

I am printing business cards and I am using thick paper but colors come out dull looking but if I change the paper to PLAIN then the colors come out just perfect, full, vivid and rich but I am afraid that...


Its most likely the paper you are printing on. It sounds like this is an ink printer. The way ink works is that it is absorbed into the paper you are printing on. Some paper pulls the ink too far into the paper causing it to look dull and faded. You need to make sure you are printing on paper that is designed for inkjet printers. There are a lot of companies that make special paper designed for printing your own business cards. I prefer Avery products since they have a guarantee.

Printing jammed on thicker paper


See the manual. It looks as if 120g/m2 is the heaviest paper it can use:
"Set Type to correspond to the paper loaded in the tray from
which you want to print. This will let you get the best quality
printout. If not, print quality may not be acheived as you want.
Thin: Less than 19 lb (70 g/m2) thin paper.
Thick: 24 lb to 32 lb (90~120 g/m2) thick paper.
Cotton: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) cotton paper such as Gilbert
25 % and Gilbert 100 %.
Plain Paper: Normal plain paper. Select this type if your printer is
monochrome and printing on the 16 lb (60 g/m2) cotton paper.
Recycled: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) recycled paper.
Color Paper: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) color-backgrounded
paper."

Print Garbage


The reason your pictures come out dark and grey is that you have not set the paper thickness on your printer. On the back you will see a flip switch change this setting then feed your business card sheet in there and see the diffrence. Plus make sure your settings for your printer are set for a thicker paper this will fix your problem. Make sure though when done printing your cards that you set it back to the normal or you will have problems printing regular paper documents.
