Is there anyway to print to this size paper? I have holiday card stock that I want to use and I'm not familar with my photo printer so I can't find where I can select unique sizes for the printer. Is this possible?

Re: printing on 4x8 cards
There are two different ways to create a custom page size within the Epson printer driver on Windows 2000 or XP. The method you need to use will vary depending on what type of driver is installed.
CREATING A CUSTOM PAPER SIZE IN SERVER PROPERTIES This method will create a new page size accessible by all printer drivers installed in Windows.
1. Open the PRINTERS (2000) or PRINTERS and FAXES (XP) window. 2. Click on FILE, then select SERVER PROPERTIES. 3. On the FORMS tab, place a check beside CREATE A NEW FORM. 4. Input a new name for the paper size. Enter the desired height and width, following the existing format (#.##in). 5. Click SAVE or SAVE FORM to add the new form size to the list, then close SERVER PROPERTIES. 6. Right click on the printer name and left click PRINTING PREFERENCES. 7. Look for PAPER SIZE. (Depending on the driver in use, this will be found on the MAIN tab, the PAPER tab, or under the ADVANCED button). Select your custom paper size from the list. 8. Click APPLY to save this setting, or OK in Windows XP.
NOTE: If your new custom size is not available on the list of preset paper sizes, it indicates that the new size is either too large or too small for the driver in use.
CREATING A CUSTOM PAPER SIZE WITHIN THE EPSON DRIVER This method will create a custom size within the Epson printer driver only.
1. Open the PRINTERS (2000) or PRINTERS AND FAXES (XP) window. 2. Right click your Epson printer name and left click PRINTING PREFERENCES. 3. On the MAIN or PAPER tab, select USER DEFINED from the PAPER SIZE drop down box. 4. Enter the new custom size and give it a name. Click SAVE to save the new size and OK to return to MAIN. 5. Click APPLY to save the changes (OK in Windows XP).

HP does not recommend printing 3 x 5 cards on this printer. It has a tray for printing 4 x 6 photos but, that is the smallest size available. However, you can set up Microsoft Word to print 3 x 5 cards on regular letter paper and then glue them to the cards. Or you can print them on card stock and cut them out.
Hope this helps.
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.
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)
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.'
Hi - I too am having an issue with my R1800 loading XMAS CARD STOCK paper.....I tried cleaning the rollers as per the EPSON web site. Although, I used alcohol in stead of water. I made sure I got the little roller way down under the paper and it seems better...although not 100%. Hope this helps!
Take a piece of stock card (I cut a piece of a manila folder to size) and put it in the feeder. Copy or print something and when the printer grabs the card stock, help it along by pushing it gently. You'll see that it prints. After that it will print on regular paper. Don't ask me why...
I looked up the user guide at Dell's website and looked up printing cards.
The print side of the cards faces down.
The cards are centered on the paper exit tray.
You select Automatic, Normal, or Photo print quality.
Apparently you need to feed the card stock one page at a time into the printer on TOP of the paper exit try (The card stock will feed in from above the normal paper load try [remove paper from the paper tray] and once printed come back to the same spot.
just leave your paper type as Plain Paper, and if your printing out a
5R size photo or photo sizes not exceed on Letter size paper, just
leave the paper sizes using Letter, print on both sides set as OFF.
then just customize the printing quality for a good printing result.
then load or place your photo paper properly on the paper tray to avoid jam.
This machine will only print certain sizes as borderless. A5 is not one of them.
You can use the following media with this feature:
Matte Paper - Heavyweight: A4, Letter
Premium Glossy Photo Paper:A4, Letter, 5 x 7", 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6", 8 x 10"
Premium Semigloss Photo Paper:A4, Letter, 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6"
Glossy Photo Paper:Letter, 10 x 15 cm/4 x 6"
As you can see A5 is not in the list, therefor you will not be able to print A5 borderless via the normal means.
