I need to feed custom paper into my C5580. It is 8.75" x 5.75" inch cardstock for shower invitations. How do I set up to print on this paper? I keep getting the paper size mismatch error. ...


You'll need to change the paper size in the printer setup options. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. In the software application you're printing from, go to File menu and select "Print."
  2. Open the dialog box that will open the printer's properties, options, setup or preferences (name depends on the software used).
  3. Click the Features tab.
  4. Under Resizing Options in the Size drop-down list, select "More."
  5. Choose "custom paper size" to enter the dimensions of your card stock.
There are other options you may want to tweak to customize the print job for your paper type, resolution, orientation, &c., as well.

Good luck!

I am trying to print a wedding invitation on 5.5" x 8.5" paper and I keep getting paper size problem.can the HPC5180 print that size paper


3 in x 5 in (min) - Legal (8.5 in x 14 in) (max) is the spec per HP. Have you tried to set up the paper size as "custom" in both the driver and the program? This may help if the size you want is not listed in the properties dropdown.

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.

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.

Can't Print Invitations


There is a workaround for this problem by tricking the printer.
The paper sensor, on my printer model hp4500 seems to only sense the paper at the beggining of the print job.
What I did to trick the printer to print on odd size paper is slide the paper adjuster to 8.5 and put a regular white sheet in. Then put your odd size paper under it. When you print your document set the number of copies to 2 and print. The printer is going to sense that the paper is correct, and start the job.
Here is the tricky part... once the first 8.5x11 sheet is almost all the way through quickly slide the paper adjuster over to match the size of your odd width paper. The printer should pick up the odd paper and print the second copy. Fool you printa! You should be able to do batches of odd paper size under the first 8.5X11. I hope this helps.

Paper mismatch


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.
