Cardstock not even showing up as option for paper

HP Recommended
Deskjet 3755
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

How do I print on cardstock from the HP Deskjet 3755 all-in-one?

 

There's not a cardstock option for printing- I tried using the photopaper option for the printer, but it's not feeding through.

True - the printer cannot be fooled by selecting the Photo paper setting to print on card paper.

 

If you have not done so, install the Full Feature Software for the printer.

HP Easy Start Printer Setup Software 

When asked to select, opt for the "Full software and drivers" (exact wording might vary).

After the software is installed, Restart your computer and log in

 

Load the paper into the printer according to the instructions in the User Guide (Pages 10-13)

 

Tell the printer about the paper.

 

Check / Adjust / Retain the Paper at the Printer Display Panel

NOTE:  This option is not available on printers that lack a printer display panel.

 

Open Printer Tray,

If you have not yet done so, add desired paper type

Wait a couple of seconds…

Close Tray

IF applicable for your printer:

Look for a message on the Printer Control / Display Panel,

Click Modify (wording varies), set the paper size and type, Click OK

 

NOTE:  If the size of the Paper Size is not in the Drop-down menu, Select Custom (likely the last selection in the list)

 

And / Or

Embedded Web Server (EWS)

 

If the printer is on the network,

If the EWS feature is supported on your printer,

Use the Embedded Web Server (EWS) to view / configure your printer.

NOTE:  Laser printer options in EWS are very different from those offered in InkJet Printers.

 

Open your favorite browser > type / enter Printer IP address into URL / Address bar

Tab Settings > Preferences > Tray and Paper Management

If applicable, check the Advanced section (at the bottom of the Tray and Paper Management menu)

Click Apply to save changes

 

NOTE:  If the size of the Paper Size is not in the Drop-down menu, Select Custom (likely the last selection in the list)

 

NOTE:  EWS is also available in HP Smart

 

Set the Preferences - Windows

 

  1. Check / enable the printer as the “Default Printer”

 

Settings > Devices > Printers and scanners

UNCHECK (clear box) Let Windows manage my default printer

Select (Left-Click) your printer from the list of printers > Manage > Set as Default

 

 

  1. Select and adjust settings in each category for the Media (kind of paper), source (tray), and paper size.

 

Settings > Devices > Printers and scanners

Left-Click on (your) Printer > Manage > Printing Preferences

 

Next

Tab Printing Shortcuts > Click / Highlight your preferred shortcut > Click Apply > Click OK to exit

 

NOTE - Make changes to a Shortcut

  • Select a shortcut and adjust the settings for paper, source (tray), other settings / Tabs
  • Scan Menu for HP Scan >>  If there is a More > section, check / adjust settings in the sub-sections > Click OK to save sub-menu changes
  • If supported, save the edited shortcut or use “Save As” or “Create Custom Shortcut” to save as a new / different file name
  • Click OK to save the setup

 

 

The setup varies according to the software / application you are using to view and submit the job to the printer.

 

Example - Printing Preferences

 

9025_Printing_Preferences_Media_Types_29025_Printing_Preferences_Media_Types_2

 

Select the closest paper you can find.

Lacking a "card" paper setting, look for "thick" or similar.

 

====================================================================================

 

If you have also installed HP Smart (Windows), use the application to print your image or document.

Adjust the settings in the main menu > Select More Settings

Select a shortcut from the ribbon

Adjust the other settings

Click OK to exit the More Settings menu

When ready, click Print
