I had my STD’s printed off at Staples this weekend, I spent $20 on 16 sheets of card stock including the cutting. If you have your own paper though I’d think they would maybe charge half, although I’m not sure if they will let you bring your own paper or not..

I had problems printing correctly for over an hour, then I put in the margins in the print options EXACTLY the size of my paper stock.   I could not print the RSVP cards, I just put it into Word and did it myself.  It would not work any other way.

I would give your local college a call, ask for their Media Services Department (or whatever dept does their inhouse printing)

Seriously! I have become great friends with the Media Service at the college here. Their prices are WAY cheaper than a kinko’s or other office store, like for reals!

I printed about 40 tabloid sheets color on cardstock (their paper) for 8 bucks (this was all my invites, map inserts, & monograms)

I was also able to take in my own paper for our programs and print 400 blk/wht 1 sided copies for 16 bucks.

I saved 100’s of dollars printing with them over office depot (which is the only place in my area, & their only paper selection is letter size, which doesn’t fit as much on it)

Get in the phonebook & find the college in your area

I was going to suggest changing the paper type on the actual printer via the screen and the application (eg. Word) AND the print properties screen but it appears that’s not an option on this model.

That’s a bummer! I got my printer at Target for $80, and it prints on cardstock just fine. Since the printer is obsolete perhaps you should look into getting a new one?
