Still sounds like a mechanical problem, however changing software shouldn't solve the problem if that were true. In any event, I'm glad you were able to find something that works. My final word of advise; stick with what works.

I have had an ongoing problem with misalignment during printing of Avery business card stock 8371 (sold as 8871)on my HP 4680 All-In-One. I have Windows 7 and am using Word 2010. The printing has started lower on the page with that card stock even though test pages with plain paper match up perfectly.
I have wasted so many pages of this expensive stock I've nearly wept in frustration.
After reading the suggestions here, first I aligned the printer cartridges. I do that every time I change cartridges but because it was an alignment issue and I think after awhile the mechanism gets sloppy, so I did it again just to be safe.
Make sure the paper guides on the tray are snug. Take all paper out of the tray and feed one page at a time. If your printer is groaning, squealing, squeaking or catching, do clean all the rollers in the front and through the back door.
Here is what worked:
1. Go to Print.
2. On Printer Shortcuts, I chose "General Everyday Printing."
3. Paper Sizes: "Letter." ("Borderless 8-1/2X11" moved my graphics off the card and to the left.
4. Paper Type: "HP Premium Plus Photo Papers."
5. Print Quality - Choose "Normal" or "Best."
6. Click on Print.
Hope this helps someone else!

I had that same problem with an HP C4180 Photosmart all in one printer. Solved it by changing the margins in the print dialog box to the following: side margin .07", horizontal gap 0, top margin .06", vertical gap 0. Good luck!

Thank you so much! I just bought a HP Photosmart 7510 (Costco's version is 7515) All In One and hoped it would work with my Avery Business Cards stock #8371 (10 to a page) (my Brother printer could not handle it). I have Windows 7, Word 2007 and used a PDF from a free business card site. I put in 1 sheet at a time. The menu is slightly different, but I did a similar thing.
1. Go to Print.
2. Click on Properties
3. Go to Paper Quality.
4. Pick Paper Source - Main Tray, Paper Size - Letter
5. Paper Type - HP Premium Plus Photo Papers. This will cause the Print Quality to grey out and automatically choose "Custom" for you.
6. Click OK and then OK again.
It should print just fine! I wish they would give that tip in the manual. Again, many thanks!

It's great that this works for your printer. Wish it would have worked for mine as I've seen this solution posted before but it just does not work for all of the Photosmart printers. Unfortuneately some of them just cannot handle the thicker, more rigid paper stock. For some of us having this issue, it isn't a software problem that can be fixed by changing settings. It is a physical issue with the rollers being able to pull the heavier, card stock into the printer evenly.
