Printing with Gina K heavy ase weight pure luxory cardstock

Does anyone print on the heavy weight cardstock and if so what settings do yo use on your printer.

I have two printers and can't seem to get either one to print on this cardstock without jaming the printer.  I assume it is just too thick!  Trying to print a printable that I pinned from pintrest on this nice ivory colored cardstock and it just doesn't want to cooperate.  Can anyone give me any advise.

No,  You cant print on that heavy of cardstock with any printer that I have found!  BUT, the 80lb ivory and the 80lb white pure luxury cardstock works beautifully!  :D 

And a suggestion for you...if I feel like I need to put something I printed onto heavier cardstock, I print on the 80lb, then glue it to the heavy base weight.  Cant tell it either!  And I've done that and fussy cut even with it!  :D

Thank you so much.  Will keep that in mind about using the thinner and then gluing.  I just assumed you could use it for printing and thought I was not using the correct setting on printer.   


Hi girls... I have a Canon MX882. I cannot print heavy card from the cassette feeder on the front of my printer... but can print my heavy weight GK card stock from the back feeder.    ;D    It took me over a year of having the printer until I thought to try it!  LOL

Hi Ruby, when I need to use Gina K's heavier weight card-stock. I use my photo tray on my printer. Photo paper is thicker than regular printer paper, so your photo tray can handle a heavier weight paper/card-stock. The only downfall is that you have a limited size you can print 5x7 or smaller. I hope this is helpful to you. Have a great day!!! :0)

HI Ruby, I have the HP Photosmart 8180 and found if I only have a few pieces of paper in the feeder it will go through with no problem, If I have more it jams. Hope this helps:)

Never thought of cutting down the paper and putting in my photo tray or placing it in from the back.  thanks for the help girls!!
