Could be -- it's not something I"ve encountered.

The User Manual, if you don't have it handy, has some information:

They give weights for Tray 1 which it seems is the manual feed tray:
60 to 163 g/m2 (16 to 43 lb)

and have a section on card stock:
Printing on Custom-Sized Media or Cardstock
Postcards, 3 by 5 in. (index) cards, and other custom-sized media
can be printed from Tray 1. The minimum media size is 76 by
127 mm (3 by 5 in.) and the maximum media size is 216 by 356 mm
(8.5 by 14 in.).

You may experience some paper jams when using any media with a
length less than 178 mm (7 in.). This may be caused by paper that has
been affected by environmental conditions. For optimum performance,
make sure you are storing and handling the paper correctly (see
Printing and Paper Storage Environment). Using media from another
manufacturer may also help.

Custom-Sized Media and Cardstock Guidelines:

Always insert the short-edge first into Tray 1. If you want to print
in landscape mode, make this selection through your software.
Inserting paper long-edge first may cause a paper jam.

Use the rear output bin to reduce curl.

Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm wide (3 in.) or 127 mm
(5 in.) long.

In your software application, set margins at least 6.4 mm (.25 in.)
away from the edges of the media.
