    This printer [mine] is a little over 1 year old. It's an all-in-one and the features work OK. I am trying to print Christmas cards on Avery card stock 3265. The blank cards go through OK but NO printing - they come back completely blank. As a sample, I printed the card on regular paper stock and it worked fine. But no printing on the card stock. I wrote to Epson explaining the problem and their answer was to use only Epson paper stock - any other 3rd party paper stock could damage the printer. That was the complete answer. Joke right? Anyone out there know something? Thanks. :confused:

    Most inkjet printers have an upper media thickness or weight (gsm) limit, Avery 3265 may exceed that limit thought I've been unable to determine it's weight per sheet from the info I've seen. Or it could be the textured surface the printhead can't cope with.

    As for Epson telling you to use only Epson media, well they would say that of course, but it's a daft response from them. Thousands of photo printing enthusiasts are using specialised third-party consumables (paper and ink) in their Epson printers every day. Whatever the cause of your problem, it's not because the paper or card is not made by Epson.

    Thanks for the reply. I kinda knew that just because of my experience over the years. I'm just hoping there is some work-around that someone knows out there. It just doesn't make sense that a current inkjet printer can't print on the thickness of greeting cards. I'm not talking about something that's as thick as your thumb here. It's just greeting cards. The people at Epson must have idiots working there. Anyone want to buy a good, working printer cheap LOL? :mad:
