      Try printing one at a time... I even had to put one sheet of regular paper behind it and that would work too.

        I am printing one at a time, and I printed regular paper first, then cardstock and of course it jammed....

          i didn't do anything special for mine. i did have a couple times wehre it wouldn't jam, but it would smear the ink. there MAY be something in your printer manual about printing on heavier paper - you could check that, maybe there is a setting.

              My printer will not print on cardstock. Of course, instead of just buying a new printer (because I really like my old one) I printed everything on vellum and affixed it to the cardstock with adhesive spray or brads. I actually ended up liking the layered look it achieved.
              However, I just bought a new printer that feeds from the top (my old one feeds from underneath) and it can handle cardstock just fine. Does yours feed from top or bottom?

                feeds from bottom!
                but I just got it to work! Actually I was printing the petal toss wording that I saw you did on sparkly paper so cute!!!
