hp officejet 6500A plus won't print on cardstock (business cards)

I have unsuccessfully  tried to print business cards (using avery template 8371 paper). I continually get messages saying "paper size or type is incorrect".  It will print from my document (word) if I use plain paper (same size).

I have chosen several different media type options - none seem to work. There is no 'cardstock' option.

 

Thanks (I hope!)

I had trouble getting my HP6500A to print on to Cardstock.

I went in under printer properties - clicked the tab for printer/quality - and under paper size, I changed it from letter to 8x10.

Maybe you can trick it like this as well?  Good luck!

How does one print on cardstock using the HP 6500.  I have changed the printer properties and still no luck,  Any suggestions?  Thanks.
