    Good general printer - Horrible with cardstock

    • Written by from Bellingham

    Printer works ok on regular weight paper for most ordinary printing jobs. Scanner is good. Wireless set-up no problem. But if you are trying to print a more complicated document, there are a lot of problems. The printer tends to increase the bottom margin, cutting off any text - even accounting for the lack of full-bleed and compensatory margins. If you want to use cardstock, forget it. The printer handles the paper differently no matter what settings you use. The alignment is squared up only occasionally. If you are trying to align cardstock double-sided, you are out of luck. Even if you manual feed one sheet at a time and print one-side at a time, it is very difficult to consistently get a good print. Seems the printer is designed for the person who only prints generic documents and the occasional photo, not being very concerned with quality or alignment.
