Have you tried checking the printer’s settings?  Sometimes there’s a setting for photopaper or cardstock.  It may print if it knows the paper is thicker.  I don’t think the kit paper is really that heavy, so this is worth a try.

We have the Canon Pixma MP190 (it was $30) and I just got done printing all of my BRIDES invitations and RSVP cards on it no problem.  Good luck!

have you tried feeding them in one at a time?  sometimes the printer will jam when there’s a stack of cardstock sitting in the tray.  i second the rec. for the Canon Pixma printer.  there’s a ton of different models, but even the under $50 ones work well on cardstocks up to 80lb. weight.  hope you’re having better luck now!! 🙂

Even though it’s not photopaper, I used the photopaper setting on my printer for printing on cardstock.  My printer slows down and grabs the paper better on that setting.  And yes, feed the paper one at a time.  If you have a choice, feed it so that it doesn’t bend around.

I agree with trying to print your invitations in photo mode. That may be a viable solution for you without having to purchase a new printer. I have the HP Officejet Pro 8500 and it will print on 99.9% of everything. The only thing that I have had trouble printing with it are some gold foil labels, but I think that is more of a software issue. I used to have, well I still do; it is my back up printer, another HP All-in-One printer that printed on absolutely everything. If you were closer, I would let you borrow it. It is a less expensive model than the one I have now, but it worked like a champ and printed on absolutely everything. I needed more features, so that is the only reason I got the other one. If you are going to purchase a new printer, I highly recommend the HP All-in-Ones. Office Depot or Best Buy are the best places that I found to purchase them. The ink is a little expensive, but it lasts forever and you can go to the HP website and order it from them for the same or less than you would pay at the store and you also get free same or next day shipping. If you choose to look for a new printer, I suggest taking a sample of the paper you are trying to print on to the store with you and have them do a test print for you to make sure that the printer will do what you want it to do.

Good luck! But I had to feed mine one at a time, too. I have an Epson NX510, and it worked brilliantly once I figured out I had to feed it one at a time. 🙂
