As you can see the Invitation card stock you are trying to FEED is 5.5" x 8.5" which is NOT AUTO CONFIGURED SIZE mentioned in the list above.. The printer should still accept your size as CUSTOM SIZE.

 

Can you please try to SET paper size to 5.5" x 8.5" in setting while printing and see if this helps.

 

Also please make sure you are not keeping more number of papers in the feeding tray.. try to keep 10 cards and see if this helps.

 

If you have the specifications of the CARDS please provide so that i can check if the thickness of the Card is causing problem.

 

Also try to keep regular A4 (8 x11) or any standard paper and see if that paper is recognised properly.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Let me know how things go.

 

All the best.

 

Regards,

I checked the box but there wasn't any information about the weight of the stock. HOWEVER, I tried your suggestion of loading 10 cards into the feeder instead of 1, and it worked! ! ! !

 

Whooo Hoooooo!

 

Thanx for your help!
