I want to print some games for an upcoming event. Is my officejet Pro 8600 able to print on cardstock?

Welcome to the HP Community Forum.

 

The simpler answer is "No" -- the printer does not handle card stock.

 

The more precise answer is that the printer is rated to print on Index card paper .

Consider the apparent age of the likely "years of service"

Make sure the printer is very clean and is ready for the heavier paper.
