Is there a setting in the printer's driver for printing on cardstock?

 

I have a different laser printer, but you may need to define the paper stock being used for the best results.

 

That cardstock may also have texture, or a different brightness, in comparison to your other stock making it seem not color matched.

There is a way you could change your settings to cardstock. My cardstock dosent appear to have a texture to it. In case you are wondering I have pen + gear cardstock with 110 lbs and 94 brightness. And I looked everywhere and I didn't seem to find what is the maximum amount of lb the cardstock that my print can support.

It indicates max weight is 670 g/m² so that 110 lb shouldn't be an issue.

 

Did changing the setting to card stock help at all?
