I am trying to print on vellum paper and my printer will not recognize it. I tried opening up the control panel on my computer and vellum/lightweight/film/transparent are all not options for paper types. Is there anything I can do?

The printer has no ability to know the paper type, this setting happens in SOFTWARE, like Word. Then the command is sent to the printer, more commonly you would change papertype for photo printing....Look in the software, and not the printer itself.

In Windows go to the control panel and click Printers. If possible open the print spooler and check to see if Windows is "stuck" on the print job that was in progress when the printer jammed.

Sometimes Windows doesn't "let go" of the pending print job and it will prevent further printing if it didn't get the message that the jam has been cleared. You can also try disconnecting the printer, open and close the print door and also remove and reattach the rear panel (if your printer has one). Then reconnect the printer and see if Windows properly recognizes that it is ready to print.

Tracing paper not picking


If you mean Vellum paper, make sure that your paper type is set from your server/computer to the printer. Remember, Stock rolled paper has different physical characteristics than Vellum. Also this will aid on the paper sensor to note what type of paper you are printing on

I cant print on white vellum paper on my epson stylus nx420 i need to print some invitations and it is just folding my paper


Try placing some standard paper behind the vellum paper, it might assist in holding correctly while printing.
Being so thin the paper I would guess is folding up under the print head? if so look through all the printer properties, under the maintenance section there may be a "set Plattern Gap" (set to wide) or "Thick Paper Setting"
Selecting these raises the print head up to allow for thicker paper to pass through, but can also help thinner paper from folding up under the heads.
I hope one of these works for you.

I had a similar experience with a different brand ...

Your printer thinks it grabbed two sheets of paper.

Open your priter program (in the control panel) and see if there is a setting for Vellum

I hope this works for you

I can't get my Epson Nx400 all in one to print on vellum. It just spits the paper through...Help!


I had this same issue and I got the printer to print on vellum but I can't say it looked all that great. But here's what I did. I went into the printing preferences and then to the maintenance tab. On the maintenance tab you'll see an option for Printer and option information. Click on that and then you will see a little check box down at the bottom of the pop up and it says Thick paper and envelopes. Put a check in the box. Click ok and then it should print on the vellum for you. Make sure you put the vellum in the printer the right side up (front side) because if you don't it will print all messed up.

Epson Stylus 580rx won't identify vellum paper


Ran into the same problem. The problem is that the printer's paper sensor sees through the vellum and therefore doesn't think any paper moved into the print position. To use vellum, fold up 1/4" edge on a standard peice of print paper and place the leading edge of the vellum under the flap. Place the paper and vellum into the printer and print. The printer will pull in the paper and the vellum together. Make the paper fold tight and straight to prevent jamming. You will need to feed one sheet at a time. Also the Epson inks take a long time to dry on vellum. I let mine dry overnight.
