  • printer compatible card blanks

    Bear with me its a bit of a story........

    me and dad went to pc world to get a new printer cartridge the other day and it seems our lovely, reliable, does what i want it to printer is getting towards being obsolete and the colour cartridge was £33
    as we turned around we spotted a lovely shiny brand new printer for £45 so we decided it was time to re-invest. Its a fab printer BUT when i tried to print some cards it wasn't having any of it and the card got completely jammed

    Does anyone know of any card blanks that will happily go through a printer that goes 180 degrees? (its a hp printer)
    this is what I do

    I know what you mean!

    I have an HP bubblejet at work and card gets stuck in it (but it does print about 80% of an A4 sheet and then gets stuck for the rest of it). At home I use a Lexmark which has no problem at all.

    Call me geeky but I think its the way they take the paper up.....

    Doesn't really help though does it?!

      its more annoying because it will do an a4 piece of card that was (in theory) the same weight!

      My old one was a hp too and that just didn't have a problem with it i think i'm just gonna have to buy some and try or print it on a4 and cut it down
      this is what I do

        My printer prints on mine fine. I have a brother all-in-one printer and they have to do 180 degrees. The card blanks i use are the same as these but in C5 size

          well i bought some the other day which were only 10gsm lighter weight than the ones i'd been using and they went through absolutely fine! Thanks for your help/advice

            Glad it worked out for you!

            I was thinking of you when I was doing some printing earlier!
