How to set up 3×5 card printing on a Canon printer

Many people never use their printer for anything other than standard tasks on regular 8.5 x 11-inch printer paper. However, there are cases where you need to print on a different type of paper. Fortunately, your Canon printer can accommodate any standard printing media, including a 3 x 5-inch card. With just a few tweaks, you can have a perfect print on any paper medium that’s compatible with your Canon printer. Printing on a 3 x 5 inch card is the perfect choice for recipes, lecture notes and many other projects.


Step 1

Adjust the printer to accommodate thicker paper. Some Canon printer models may have manual levers located under the flat scanner cover, while others may have the option of adjusting the paper thickness on the dashboard menu or through your computer. Check out your guidebook for specific instructions for your specific Canon printer model.

Step 2

Set the printer to a 3 x 5-inch paper size option. This can appear in the drop-down menu when you select “Print,” and then select “Options” or “Properties.” Some canon printer models allow you to place paper sizes by selecting “Paper Select” on the printer screen. Select a preloaded option or manually adjust the size parameters to fit the 3 x 5 inch card.

Step 3

Place a small stack of cards measuring 3 x 5 inches on the right side of the paper tray so that the long edge of the card is placed vertically. Move the paper conductor towards the cards until it is flat and fixed to the edge of the paper set. If your Canon printer has a photo paper plug tray, insert this tray according to your manual and use this tray to hold your 3 x 5-inch cards.

Step 4

Press “Print” on your computer screen. Press “OK” on the dialog box that appears. You can also press “Print” or “Copy” directly on your Canon printer.
