Welcome to the HP Community.

==============================================================

 

Based on the documentation,  the paper, within the paper type, is too heavy.

 

Assuming you could find / select "Card", 120 lb paper exceeds the limitations for what most (all?) inkjet printers will support.

 

You cannot select "Photo Paper" and then load and try to use Card paper - most printers can sense the difference and will result in a paper mis-match or equally frustrating error.

 

Want to Try again in spite of what the documentation says?

 

HP Brochure paper is 180 gsm -

If you can find / select the type in your Media list,

the paper type might work, might fail, might result in a paper jam.
