Paper thickness for LaserJet Pro MFP M476dw

HP Recommended
LaserJetPro MFP M476dw
macOS 11.0 Big Sur

What is the maximum thickness this printer can handle? I am looking to get a waterproof clear sticker paper. The product I am looking at states that it is 230gsm sticker paper. Can this printer handle this type of stock?

Thanks for any feedback

Welcome to the HP Community.

 

Short answer: 

No, 230 gsm paper is too heavy.

Comments - Ignore if not relevant...

What about the "surface" on the paper?

Waterproof, clear, sticker paper might work or might slip, smudge, or drag.

What?  Not specifically supported, in other words.

Make sure that whatever product you do try is "Laser" paper type.
