Trying to use Avery Business Cards which are 260g.  However the printer alignment slips so that the printing on the cards does out of vertical alignment.  What paper media needed?

Welcome to HP Support Forum. Unfortunately printer only supports

 

            Up to 200 g/m² (110 lb index maximum)

 

Please try thinner cards.

 

Regards.

The point has been missed as the Avery Business Cards are 260g.  They do go through the printer but not at the desired rate compared with the printing.  Hence the first row of cards prints ok, the second row is out of alignment vertically but could be used; the third and fourth rows have to be thrown away as the lignment is causing the printing to start before the card reaches the position for the print.

 

Suggesting a thinner paper is therefore no good

Sounds like you need a proper template from Avery. Please ask them to supply a template to get proper layout.

 

Hope this helps.

Avery's template is working fine; its just the printer throughput that can't keep up with the printing.

 

So what paper media best matches 260g matt paper?
