printing 5 x 7 single page card

officejet pro 9025
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

We recently purchased a OfficeJet Pro 9025 and I need to print 5 X 7 single page cards on card stock.   This is not the primary function of this printer but is something I thought it could do.  When I print, the printing is not centered, it is down at one end of the card.  Please help!

Edits - Correct the first example image


Yes, printer can likely do this.



For example


If the print is slightly off center, it could be simply that the exact shape of the photo does not match the shape of the paper.  Uneven borders can be centered horizontally / vertically for a better fit but the effect won't be perfect.




If the image is way-off to the side, it may be that the printer control panel does not know you are using (have loaded) the 5x7 inch paper.  The Printer Preferences may be unassigned or stuck on a previous job / shortcut setting.


Check / Adjust / Retain the Paper at the Printer Panel


Open Printer Tray,

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

Close Tray

IF applicable for your printer:

Look for a message on the Printer Control 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 list, Select Custom


Set the Preferences - Windows


  1. The following assumes the Full Feature Software has been installed.
  2. Check / enable the printer as the “Default Printer”
  3. Select and adjust settings in each category for the Media (kind of paper), source (tray), and paper size.


Control Panel > icon view > Devices and Printers > Right-Click on your printer > Set as Default


Control Panel > icon view > Devices and Printers > Right-Click on your printer > Printing Preferences >

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


If the printer software supports the feature, change the settings as desired, then use “Save as” to create a Custom Shortcut.



Windows key + S (search for) Printers and Scanners

Left-Click on (your) Printer > Manage >

Printing Preferences

Select a shortcut and / or set “preferred settings” for paper, source (tray), other settings

Optional (if / as supported on the printer): Save As > enter a name for your custom shortcut

Click OK to save the preferences




As well, if the Media type is not selected correctly, or if the media (kind of paper) is not supported, the paper may be getting stuck (not feeding properly).


The Specifications are frustratingly vague in some respects - the "Card" paper is likely referring to "Index" card.


Media types
Plain Paper, HP Photo Papers, HP Matte Brochure or Professional Paper, HP Matte Presentation Paper, HP Glossy Brochure or Professional Paper, Other Photo Inkjet Papers, Other Matte Inkjet Papers, Other Glossy Inkjet Papers, Thick Plain Paper, Light/Recycled Plain Paper, HP Tri-fold Brochure Paper, Glossy

60 to 105 g/m² (plain); 220 to 280 g/m² (photo); 75 to 90 g/m² (envelope); 163 to 200 g/m² (card)
Media weight supported (U.S. standard)
16 to 28 lb (plain paper); 60 to 75 lb (photo); 20 to 24 lb (envelope); 90 to 110 lb (card)
Borderless printing
➡️Yes, on photo and brochure paper only, up to 8.5 x 11 in (US letter), 210 x 297 mm (A4)

OK - Note the Media setting in the example - "thick paper" (card, for example) does not support Borderless.

Brochure paper (typically 180 gsm) does support borderless as does photo paper.

Brochure paper does not (typically) come in 5x7 - Create a custom paper size.

Might work - Depends on your paper... You cannot fool the printer trying to use heavy card stock and just calling it brochure paper.  Too much difference in paper density and the obvious possible weight difference.


Added simply as FYI for "things to know / try / consider"...
