I am using the Jimz Rocket plans site and would like to print up some fin templates.

I have Brother Intellifax 2820 laser printer.

What’s the heaviest cardstock I could likely print on?

This is what I found on Brother website, but it is unclear which printer they refer to

Thick Paper (28 to 43 lb or 105g/m2 to 163g/m2): MP Tray only

- Cardstock paper that is 43 lb of less is supported. If Cardstock paper is over 43 lb, it is not supported on the machine.

Can you hand-feed single sheets of cardstock? Most printers allow it. My Brother inkjet has a slot in the back, and I can feed 110 lb cardstock one at a time with no issues.

Didn’t even know it had a manual feed slot. It does!
Thanks!

My Ricoh laser chokes on cardstock so I just print on regular paper and glue it to the cardstock.
Also gives me the chance to use scraps of leftover cardstock instead of a full sheet each time.
