    I'm using a HP Deskjet 450, and every time I try to print on anything besides regular white (8.5x11) paper it locks up. Like it'll lock up if I try to print on thin card stock for business cards, what I'm trying to print now are address label. And it seems to lock up every time as soon as it starts to feed the paper a couple of inches. I was able to do this just fine on my old printer. :(

    Any suggestions? Is the printer broken?

    Can you print at all with your new printer? Did you buy the printer version of the card paper? (I don't think it really matters) It could be a number of things:
    The paper is too heavy (I know that, that could cause a problem)
    It could be that something minute could be in the printer causing it to hang...

    Yes, it will print, but only on regular, white printer/copier paper.
    I use Avery band for cardstock and address labels. As far as I know it's designed to go through printers.

    Thanks for the thoughts, though. Any other ideas?
