HP4630 doesn't 'do' cardstock

hp 4630

The HP 4630 doesn't REALLY 'do' cardstock does it? HP claims it does, but every time I've tried this I get the same disappointing result. HP's own support docs say I can just select cardstock from the drop down menu, but cardstock is never an option. This is on both Windows and Mac with the latest drivers. I have tried 'brochure' because apparently that's a possibility, but that doesn't work either.

It's an old printer, but I'm still paying HP $5 a month for their Instant Ink product so I'm feeling a bit salty about this printer being described as cardstock ready when it doesn't appear to be. I've seen this question multiple times and no one ever seems to get a resolution. 


Has anyone ever gotten this to work?

@pcjr2000, Welcome to HP Support Community!


I understand you have issues with printing cardstock on the printer. To provide you with an accurate solution, I'd like to know the following-

  • Is there any error message when you try to print cardstock?
  • Have you tried making photocopies using cardstock?
  • Were you able to print cardstock earlier?

Keep me posted for further assistance.
