Avery 8987 Gold Address Labels won't Print

I am attempting to print to the subject labels, yet, no matter the paper type selection, the printer rejects the paper and the error message "Paper Mismatch is displayed.  How can I get these labels printed?

Answered my own question!  I simply removed the 'waste' gold foil from around the first row of labels and identified the paper type as  'other photo paper'.  The sensor on the printer apparently is looking for the edge of the paper, but when it 'sees' the gold foil, it trips the printer and causes the error message.
