HI

 

These printers print 90-110 lbs card stock, which translates across to your 300gsm card.  The OfficeJet Pro 8100 and OfficeJet Pro 8610 are presently on sale at HP Online Store for $99.99.  There are a couple of more that are higher priced.

Re: Hp printer that can print 300gsm card

I can confirm it is NOT the HP8600 series. 

 

Having tried in vain to print 250 Xmas cards this year on my 8620, using 200gsm photopaper ..

Giving up, used 200gsm plain paper and in the former, it told me to use HP photopaper, which they do not do without the HP logo on the plain and unprintable side.

The plain printed ok, except 80% shifted off centre, so were useless.

 

I have now ordered 160gsm and hope very much, it can manage that.

 

Question remains.  What inkjet can manage 300gsm effortlessly?

Re: Hp printer that can print 300gsm card

No your incorrect 110pound card stock is not 300 gsm

110lb cover stock which is much stiffer is 330 gsm

 

The thickness is measured like this 

card stock: pound x 1.5 = gsm

cover stock: puund x 2.7 = gsm

 

so 110lb cards stock is 110 x 1.5 = 165gsm

and 110lb cover is 110x2.7=297gsm

 

this may vary for paper types so some 110lb may be 298 or the company may just round it ofr to 300 gsm on the lable

eithe way 110 card stock is only 165gsm
