Apologies for jumping in unannounced.

 

@jules8591 

 

I found a reference that indicates this printer generally supports the "usual" paper types for this kind of printer.

 

For example,

Photo paper is supported to 250 gsm (66lb)

HP Brochure paper is supported (typical weight =180 gsm)

HP Presentation paper (120 gsm)

 

"Card" paper is not mentioned.

"Thick paper" is included in the list but lacks a definition.

 

Typical "card" paper support is 163-200 gsm.

 

Do Not load card paper and then tell the printer setup that you are using Photo paper - printer cannot be fooled as a rule >> the results vary:  refusal to take the job, jamming, partial print.

 

So, is card paper supported?

Likely, yes.

 

One more t hing:

Like other paper manufactured for home and professional use, Card paper is NOT all the same.

INDEX card paper is likely supported at the weights indicated.

 

 

Media TypesPlain Paper, HP Photo Papers, HP Matte Brochure or Professional Paper, HP Matte Presentation Paper, HP Glossy Brochure or Professional Paper, Other Matte Inkjet Papers, Other Glossy Inkjet Papers, Inkjet Hagaki, Plain Paper Thick, Plain Paper Light/Recycled
Media Weight Recommended (imperial)16 to 28 lb, bond
Media Weight Recommended (metric)60 to 105 g/m²
Media Weights Supported, By Paper Path (Imperial)9 to 66 lb bond (plain media)
Media Weights Supported, By Paper Path (metric)34 to 250 g/m²

Index Card paper is indeed mentioned in this reference.

Interestingly, the photo paper reference indicates photo paper up to 300 gsm is supported.  

Pages 141-143
