Has anyone ran thick cardstock 253gsm/140lb/12pt through a M252dw successfully?

HP Recommended
M252dw
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have an M452dw and still have time to return it if this smaller printer can handle the same job.  No specs posting pls.  the specs always state a lower limit.  I need real world use examples if any exist. Anyone print thick postcards as I'm doing or anything this thick?  Thanks

Hi,

The Specs do have reasons for the shown values, those did not came from nowhere and indicate the hardware capabilities...

 

From my experience I would not recommend trying a such, it will likely not work at all or not well..

 

You will likely experience frequent jams and print quality issues, if it will success to print, as well any printer damage due to unsupported media voids the warranty and any required repair due to a such may require a fee..

 

Bottom line, from my experience from supporting HP users, using a thicker media usually fails...

Thank you, good point especially for anyone else considering similar. My post here :

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/LaserJet-Printing/laser-jet-m452nw-quot-load-paper-quot-and-quot-paper...

mentions how I'm getting a "paper jam" after each print. It appears this happens right at the end where it lets go of the paper where the thickness of my paper keeps it stuck at the end, where although I can pull it out and it is printed successfully, it triggers the jam as the rollers I guess, still sense the paper. Maybe you have some insight on this and can comment, there or here.

Thanks
