Maybe not.

Product introduced 2014


Media TypesPaper (plain, inkjet, photo), envelopes, transparencies, labels, cards, the HP premium media, iron-on transfers, borderless media
Media Weight Recommended (imperial)18 to 22 lb
Media Weight Recommended (metric)70 to 90 g/m²
Media Weights Supported, By Paper Path (Imperial)16 to 72 lb
Media Weights Supported, By Paper Path (metric)Tray 1: A4: 75 to 90 g/m²; HP envelopes: 75 to 90 g/m²; HP Photo Paper: up to 250 g/m²; HP 10 x 15 cm photo paper: up to 250 g/m²



The Datasheet lists "card" paper but does not provide any details.  The paper types that are listed are shown as restricted to lighter weight media.  NOTE:  Photo paper does not count in this context - most printers, even older printers, can sense photo paper and will reject the "selection" of photo paper when there is "other" paper loaded in the tray.


Typically, Index card paper (the "card" paper most often supported) might range from 163 to 200 g/m². 


That you characterize the "sticker paper" as heavyweight might be significant - whether the paper has any chance of working in the printer depends on the actual weight of the paper. If the paper "seems" heavier than lightest weight index card paper, the printer might reject it or just jam and balk.


Finally, you must be able to select a Media type (kind of paper) that is similar to the paper you are using.

Brochure matte (where available), Card (Index) might work for your paper, for example if the paper is not very "heavy".


Other Factors that might influence your choices / setup:

Full Feature Software would have to have been installed.

More Guessing...

I'd guess that you need a different printer - but that assumption is based on few facts and the age of the device.
