Index cards are thicker than regular paper.

Before doing anything, please check the specifications of your HP printer to ensure it can handle the thickness of the index card you are using.

Attempting to print of card that is too thick for your printer will result in damage being done to the printer.


Replace the print media in your printer with the index cards you want to print on. The number of index cards you can fill the printer with depends on the size of the input tray on the printer.
