SOURCE: Printing envelopes

You will probably have to change your paper settings on the printer itself to proceed without an error. In the additional settings>Paper Size> change it from Ltr to Envelope.

SOURCE: Envelope prints the wrong way

This may be a very inconvenient solution but if your desperate then try it. The label you are trying to print : Take a snapshot of it using the print screen button on your keyboard and then paste it into paint. Cut out everything except the label then use the page setup feature in paint to make sure its in the right spot. Dont forget to choose envelope in the page setup and in the printer settings.

SOURCE: How to print envelopes on my printer

Use The Recommended Print Area For the best printing results, adjust the top and bottom margins of your document to within the recommended printing area shown below. Click on the paper size listed for the recommended print area settings: A4 / B5 / A5 / 4 x 6 / 4 x 8 / 5 x 7 / Credit Card, Letter and Legal, Envelopes (DL / COM#10)
Caution: When printing is performed outside the recommended printing area, the top and bottom edges of the paper may curl, the print quality may deteriorate, or the printed side may be smudged.
The printer has both the recommended print area and the printable area, according to the paper size.
05sj00144_01.jpg Recommended print area: This indicates the recommended print area.
05sj00144_02.jpg Printable area: Although this indicates the printable area, degradation of print quality may occur.
Note:

  • Set Borderless Printing to print without margins.
  • In Duplex Printing, the printable area of the paper's header is approximately 2 mm narrower than usual.

For Vista wireless setup: Open your Control Panel. Choose Printers. In the Printers box it lists your printers. Hover over the wireless printer icon, right click, choose Run as Administrator, then choose Use Printer online. This should change the status of the printer to Ready (from Offline). Be sure you've chosen this printer as your default printer. Might have to do this on a regular basis.

How do I print an envelope on my Canon MP510?


Envelopes must be fed from the Auto Sheet Feeder. Use either European DL or US Comm. Env. #10-sized envelope.
Important :
  • You need to print from the computer to print on envelopes.
  • Do not use envelopes with embossed or treated surfaces, a double flap, pressure seals, or sticker flaps.
  • Select either DL Env. or Comm. Env. #10 in the printer driver according to the envelope size you are using. If you do not, the address will be printed in the wrong direction.

1 : Retract the Paper Support.

2 : Load the envelope against the Cover Guide (the right side of the Paper Support).
Load with the front face UP and the rear flaps DOWN on the left.
A maximum of 10 envelopes can be loaded at once.

*2 Make sure the flaps are folded.
Important : Make sure that the Cover Guide is set upright.

I have a Canon MP460 & cannot print DL envelopes from a .pdf as there is a grey band showing in preview:composite. Nothing prints in this band. How do I remove it?


This appears to be a bug with the Canon software. It is not using the correct dimensions for a DL envelope.

The solution is to use a Custom Paper Size. Make it 110mm wide and 220mm high (which are the correct dimensions for a DL envelope).

To make it easy to select this size in the future, set the Custom Paper Size (plus any other options you want) and then click on the Save button. When the save dialog appears, click on Options and make sure that "Save the paper size setting" is checked. Then enter a suitable name (e.g., "Envelope DL Custom") and click OK.

Can't print DL envelopes on a Pixma iP4600


Hi ...

If you like to print DL envolopes, check the below 3 points and I am sure you will be able to print from your printer.

Prepare the printer:
  1. Open the Rear Tray and pull out the Paper Support. Put your finger in the rounded indent of the Paper Support and pull it out until it stops. (See <1> in Figure 1 below.)

  2. Open the Paper Output Tray. Put your finger in the rounded indent beside the Paper Output Tray and open it gently. (See <2> in Figure 1 below.)

  3. Open the Output Tray Extension. Open up and set the Output Tray Extension completely by pressing down the hollow on its front side. (See <3> in Figure 1 below.)

  4. Adjust the position of the Paper Thickness Lever. Set it to the right when printing on envelopes or T-shirt transfers, and left when printing on any other type of paper. (See <4> in Figure 1 below.)


    * Figure 1

  5. Load the envelope.
    1. Load the envelope against the right side of the Rear Tray. (See <1> in Figure 3 below.)
    2. Load the envelope with the address side facing UP and the rear flaps DOWN on the left. (See Figure 2 below or, <b> in Figure 3 below.)

      * Figure 2

    3. Pinch the Paper Guide and slide it against the left side of the envelope. (See <2> in Figure 3 below.)

      * Figure 3

      t_0148.jpg

      Note: Reset the Paper Thickness Lever to the left when you finish printing. (See <3> in Figure 3 below.)



Preparing Envelopes to Load:
  1. Press down firmly on the edges of the envelopes to make the folds crisp. Also, press firmly on the area that corresponds to the edges of the back flap.

  2. Remove any curling by holding the edges diagonally and bending them gently.

  3. If the edges of the envelope are inflated or are curling, place the envelope on a flat surface. With a pen, press down while moving it from the center toward the edges of the envelope.

  4. Ensure that no curl or puff exceeds 1/8 in. (3 mm).

Print 6 3/4'' envelopes on a Canon d320


Press additional functions button, then use the + button to go to paper setting and use the + button to get to paper size, then using the + or - button to get to envelope and then if you push the + or - button you will get different sizes i suppose they are, but not sure what exactly they mean. I don't have any small envelopes to test it with your specific size, but finally just realized on to print #10 envelopes on it.

PIXMA 830 Smudges when printing envelopes


On my MP780, be careful to select the appropriate paper type; I was getting black smudges on the left side of my envelopes until I explicitly set that my paper type was "envelope" from "plain paper".  
Another idea is to adjust the "ink drying wait time" to a higher level.
