Cardstock won't show up in print dialog box in Photoshop with PRO-300


I have a PRO-300 which I love, but I'm having trouble I'm printing on cardstock (colors are very light). I can't select for cardstock in the print dialog box, but cardstock shows up as an option on the printer itself. I installed the Media Configuration tool to make sure cardstock was an option for the printer, but it won't show up in the dialog box. See below.

Anyone have any suggestions of how I can select for that media in the print dialog box?



Double-check in System Settings->Printers & Scanners that you have the Canon IJ Series driver installed and not the Apple AirPrint driver.

It should say as driver. If it says Version 3.0 it is the AirPrint driver.

If AirPrint, re-add the printer after downloading and installing the latest driver.

Ohhh, wow, thank you for replying. I was using the AirPrint driver. I'll find the Canon IJ driver, install it and get back to you.
