I had this exact same problem and it is truly frustrating! I finally stumbled on this link with a solution. The problem really is that when you make a custom size envelope you measure the envelope as you look at it for height and width, then you stick it in the printer with the longest side of the envelope against the long side of the printer tray, thus the printer is reading the dimensions of the paper in reverse of your custom size. Reverse your dimensions in the custom size set up and try again. This worked for me. Here's the link to the message I read that finally helped me to figure this out::

Good Luck!

Ink system msg comes up in all print scenarios

I would un-install then re-install printer software ...then make sure the hp is set at default probably wouldn't hurt to unplug the printer and let it sit fir a few minutes then once the software is loaded add your power first then with an active computer re-connect your usb and let the system find the printer . hope this helps !
