I've never been able to print custom sizes with my HP printer and
HPLIP. Not with Gimp or anything else. Anything other than the
printer's built-in formats results in either cups disabling the
printer, or a messed-up output. My printer is not a photo printer,
it's a business-class network laser printer, so I can't even print
pictures because there are no built-in picture sizes available for me
to choose from. This is despite the fact that my printer has a
built-in card reader and a dedicated picture-printing function. I
can't even select custom sizes on the printer itself, disregarding
HPLIP altogether. I've been contemplating buying a picture printer
specifically for making prints of my pictures without having to drive
to the store all the time.
