Probably a silly question here, but have you gone into the Printers Settings menu, and changed it for the thicker material? Also, maybe try a different setting for the print type/speed? Not familiar with a laser printer, but I know I can do this on my normal printer.

Have you tried a lighter weight watercolor paper? I have a 90# weight from Fabriano that goes through just fine.
