Printer keeps printing the same address on envelope
Hello, my printer keeps printing the same address over and over. It seems to be photo print and I am trying to print envelops. I think printer needs to be re-set. How do I do this so I can print envelops?

I am on an iMac using OSX 10.5.8 and printing on an Epson R1800. With iWork, word processing module I set up the envelope to print and under the File menu, select page setup and choose #10 Envelope with Portrait orientation. I feed the envelope into the printer in the normal horizontal, top first, print surface up. In the File menu I select Print and hit Return. Most of the time this works. Sometimes the envelope feeds through without printing, and occasionally the envelope won't feed but the printer goes through the printing cycle. The R1800 is not the ideal envelope printer. It is made to print photos on photographic paper. I use an old fashioned typewriter to address envelopes.
When you open up your printer settings (got to printer and right click on properties), go to the advanced tab. In there you'll find various setting for print quality and paper sizes, choose envelopes. Make sure you insert the envelopes into you printer as specified on the printer.
Printing envelopes with an HP 1350: If you use MS Word, select ENVELOPES. When address window appears, select OPTIONS on right > select PRINTING OPTIONS > select FEED METHOD option on far right (envelope placed on right of tray face down); select FACE DOWN; select FEED FROM UPPER TRAY. The only problem I have with this is that the address prints off in the lower quarter of the envelope rather than in the center of the envelope as we would write it manually. I am currently working on solving that problem.
