What is the actual paper size? it it a 2x3 sheet or another size with multiple splitting?


If the first answer is correct and this is a single business card, such a small paper size is not supported by the printer, therefore you would not be able to select such a size


The printer supports wide paper size within the range of 3 to 5 inches wide, 8.5 to 14 inches long:

Apologies for jumping in unannounced.


@ShlomiLis correct - the printer cannot print a single card from the sheet.

(Windows) If you have installed the Full Driver Printer Software,

If the margins required by both the printer and the template will work,

If the paper is not too heavy for the printer,

You might be able to print the whole sheet with all cards still in the sheet (no single cards removed from the sheet).


If all considerations / requirements are met, can you print the PDF file using HP Smart Mobile?


HP Smart Mobile:  Remember to set the paper size and paper type (Tray and Paper Management) before you open your PDF file to be printed.


References / Considerations / Details


What the printer can do:

Product Specifications for the HP DeskJet 2720 All-in-One Printer (3XV18B) 

Paper Handling

Media types
Plain paper, Photo paper, Brochure paper
Media weight supported (metric)
A4: 60 to 90 g/m²; HP envelopes: 75 to 90 g/m²; HP cards: up to 200 g/m²; HP 10 x 15 cm photo paper: up to 300 g/m²
Borderless printing



Print Margin Bottom (A4)12.7 mm
Print Margin Left (A4)3 mm
Print Margin Right (A4)3 mm
Print Margin Top (A4)3 mm




The template :

Avery Template 28371 


According to what I can find,

Each full sheet is 8.5 X 11 inches


One reference  (NOT a solicitation to purchase)


Packaged flat on 8 1/2" x 11" sheets with 10 cards per sheet, you're sure to have an ample supply on hand.
Overall Dimensions:
Length: 3 1/2"
Width: 2"


Template Margins

Note that the bottom margin in the template is just a bit smaller than the smallest margin the printer can manage.

Might be OK as long as other considerations are addressed.



Even if the margins are acceptable, the paper weight for this product is too heavy for your printer.


Amazon shows this product is paper weight: 230 gsm



Avery shows this product at

Premium business cards weigh 80lbs / 216gsm


OK -

IF the paper weight is actually the 216 gsm and not the 230 gsm


If the margins will let you print the completed template in alignment,

Then this might work.


Set your paper size to "Letter" 8.5 x 11 inches

Set your paper type to Brochure, Card, "Thick" or similar (not Photo paper - printer can tell the difference)


Example - Avery 8873 Sample Business Card - PDF Print - Windows  Adobe Reader DC 

Note - The template in the example is different - setup is similar / same

Example - Retain / Modify / Check Paper Size/Type - Tray and Paper Management





Adobe Reader DC – Install Whether You Use It or Not

If you have not done so,

Reinstall / Update your PDF Reader (Adobe Reader DC /Optional  Foxit Reader)

HINT:  Watch out for and UNCHECK unwanted extra software


NOTE:  Adobe Reader DC software can be installed even if you do not normally open / view / print PDF files directly from the Adobe Reader DC software.
