setting new page size

officejet 6956
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm trying to overprint on a 10cm X 21cm flyer. How do I get my 6956 to adjust to that size? Isit possible?

The size you mention is well within the allowed specifications for the printer. You will need to create a custom size in the printer driver and I also suggest that you enter the custom media size on the printer tray settings as well to ensure that you do not get a paper size mismatch error.

I'll see if I can do that. No idea yet as I've not tried this before. Had a go on the printer which didn't seem to work, but I'll give it another try. I'll also try to find how to set up the driver on the pc.

Thanks. I'll get back to you

Thanks for the help. I have already tried that and despite reading every tab thoroughly [I think] I can't find 'Related settings' or 'Print Server Properties'

Does this printer actually accept unusual sizes? The size I'm trying for is actually 1/3 A4 or 9.9cm W x 21 cm long
