How to print an envelope

Do you have a picture or something that allows a person to follow the directions for printing envelopes. I opened the back of my printer for manual feed but nothing happens. I need a better explanation on how to feed an envelope into the printer. Most printers allow you to print envelopes by sliding the paper holder to the size of an envelope. This printer just says manual feed, one person posted something about a tray and opening the back, what does this mean? Are they saying the manual feed is the tray and by opening the back it will feed it into the printer for an envelope? Please someone help me understand how to make this work.

SOURCE: Can't print from the MP tray?

When you print labels or envelopes you need to select the correct tray from the print menu. (File print or ctrl P) or the printer will think the normal paper tray is being used.

You can force the printer to change the tray after the print has been sent by pressing the continue button on the printer, just make sure that the normal tray has no paper in it.

Are there settings on the control panel of your printer?

If so, can you change the settings of the Tray 1 to Envelope on the control panel?

Hi,
I would recommend you re-orientate your envelope going into the printer by placing it flap up, right flush but with the widest side in fist (or horizontally as per your description). Below is my attempt of the envelope as it should be placed in the paper tray (all in bold characters): _________ |\ /| | \ / | | `...' | |__/___\__|In your document editor it should be orientated like a normal document.Best luck,Ed(In case the drawing is not very clear, click here an the way to put the envelope IN the aper tray should be like the 1st drawing)

Hi,

Try to print envelope through Microsoft Word

Steps:-

1) Click Tools , click Letters and Mailings and then click Envelopes and Labels .
2) Type the Delivery and Return address information.
3) Click Options .
4) On the Envelope Options tab, set the following options:-

  • Envelope size : set to match the loaded envelopes.
  • US only : if desired, select the Delivery point barcode to make it easier for mail sorting machinery to correctly route the envelope.
  • Return address : for Size 10 envelopes only, set the Return Address position .8 inch in the From left section.
5) Select the Printing Options tab and verify that the following settings are selected:
  • Select the Feed Method option that shows the envelope on the far right side with the short edge first.
  • Select Face down .
  • Examine the selected feed method image and verify that the envelope flap is on the left side of the envelope. If it is on the right, select or deselect Clockwise rotation.
6) Click OK and then click Print .

As envelop can not feed correctly every time, it depends on the weight, flap design, paper type and other factors & cause jam, To prevent those you can do.
  • Print envelopes at a higher quality setting so envelope is pulled through the unit more slowly. e.g:- Switch fast to slow mode or slow to best mode.
  • Tuck the flap inside the envelope before loading it into the printer.

Have a nice day...don't forget to rate the solution.

Try this!

I am hoping that you are trying to print envelopes from a microsoft word document right?

Open the document and go to the tools area and open envelopes and click the button option to save the envelope as a copy in the document.

This should show a picture of an envelope above your document and/or letter written. Highlight the text on the envelope and edit your font. Change the direction of the font to upside down.

Then print the envelope only by clicking on the picture of the envelope on the screen and then choose "file" and "Print" and then change the setting to "current page only" and choose "ok" to begin printing.

Load the envelopes the same way that you are now (with the printing upside down in the printer).

Print one copy and see if this solves your problem.

If not, repost your problem and I will help you solve this.

Need to pring envelopes on my konica Minolta hub 350 printer


Place envelopes in either drawer 1 (top drawer) or the by-pass tray. Generally, the envelope is placed side to be printed down. (On the printer you can set up custom envelope sizes.)

Select Print. Click 'Properties' for the printer. In the resultant dialogue window, set the printer to print to the 'envelope' print path.
Click OK, click Print. (test print direction first)
Check your printed envelope. You may need to change the orientation of the envelopes to print with the opening at the top.

Won't print envelopes in black


First you need to change the settings in the software you are trying to print the envelope. Open the program (for example MS Word), go to the option from which you print envelopes and labels. Set the font color to black, not "automatic", and in Word, click "default", which sets the color as black rather than allowing the printer or its software to select the wrong color. Then try to print on the envelope and let us know if you are able to print the envelope in black only.

Envelope printing


You need to insert the envelope in the manual feed area and open the exit door at the back this allows the envelope to go straight through the printer hopefully limiting creasing. Check the envelope settings in windows make sure that you are using the correct size and feed selection.
