Hello. I have an HP photosmart 5520 printer, and I'm trying to print on card stock (80 lb, 8.5 x 11 in, heavy weight, 216 gsm); however, I'm not sure which settings to choose when selecting paper quality as there is no "card stock" option. Any ideas? There is Matte Greeting Card option, would that work? I'm at a loss.
You cannot select "photo" paper to fool the printer - printer will mostly check for photo paper and reject your job if you are lying about "photo paper" in the tray.
If you can find some paper that is within the weight limits, you can choose the Card paper or perhaps other "heavy" paper (brochure matte is typically 180 gsm and the selection can sometimes be used for "card paper" printing).
