Re: how to print on 3by 5 index card

Hi @j73,


Thank you for posting on HP Support Forums. It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts, and other support personnel. I see from the post that you are having issues printing on an index card on your HP Envy 4520 printer. Don't worry as I have a few steps to help you get through this concern,


Let's start off by performing a Hard reset on the printer and make sure that the printer is connected directly to the wall outlet and not to the surge protector.


With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer and also unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

Remove USB cable, if present.

Wait for 2-3 minutes, press and hold the power button on your printer for about 30 seconds to remove any additional charge.

Now plug back the power cable straight to a wall outlet without any surge protector or an extension cord and then plug back the power cord to the printer.

Turn on the printer and wait till warm-up period finishes and the printer is idle.


If your printer connected wirelessly, make sure to temporary connect the device with USB and then follow the link to check for the latest firmware update if available for your printer, using this website


Try positioning the cards in landscape format, opposed to portrait, and the guidelines should fit the cards as they should.


I hope this helps. Let me know how it goes for further assistance. I'll be more than happy to help.
