    I have the same problem. The problem developed this evening midway through my print job. I bought a brand new TN-350 cartridge thinking that may solve the problem, but no.



    On plain copy paper, all is well. I have adjusted the properties of the print job to "envelope" to "thick envelope" and also converted the file to different formats (such as .pdf). But the problem persists.

    Using Endicia as well. Same exact problem with just envelopes. It prints fine on regular paper. I have had the printer for over a year and have been printing on envelopes from endicia for the whole time and this just started out of nowhere. Here is the REALLY STRANGE THING, I have the exact same printer on a different computer and the problem started at the same time. Could this somehow be realted to Dazzle or Indicia ? I will print a test from Word right now and let you all know.

    Hi,

    I have the same problem with ghosting envelopes. There is a bulletin from Brother to increase fuser temp. It solved the regular paper ghosting, but is still ghosting on envelopes. Brother support says to try diff. envelopes with lower moisture content. These are hard to find on the shelf. Let me know if anyone has a better solution. My customer would appreciate it. Thanks.

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

3 : Pinch the Paper Guide and slide it against the left side of the envelope.

4 : Press the Paper Feed Switch so that the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp lights up.

5 : Set the Paper Thickness Lever to the right.

In the printer driver, select 'Envelope' in Media Type, and then select 'DL Env'. or 'Comm. Env. #10' in Page Size.

Where to place envelope.


This should be in your manual complete with pictures.

You can print a single envelope using the photo/envelope feeder. Insert the envelope into the photo/envelope feeder with the side to be printed facing down and the flap to the left.

You can print multiple envelopes (max 20) from the bottom tray. Temporarily remove the top (output) tray. Slide the paper guide in the bottom tray to the left. Load your envelopes to the far right with the side to be printed down, flaps to the left (I like to tuck the flaps into each envelope so they are less easily jammed, but this is optional). Slide the paper guide to the right snugly against the envelopes. Replace the output tray. Start printing.

I have a Lexmark C510, how do I print a business envelope?


You can load up to 10 envelopes in the standard tray. Try a sample of any envelopes you are
considering using with the printer before buying large quantities. See Loading envelopes in the
standard tray
for instructions on loading envelopes.
When printing on envelopes:
To achieve the best possible print quality, use only high-quality envelopes that are designed
for use in laser printers.
Set the Paper Source in the Paper Menu based on the source you are using, set the Paper
Type to Envelope, and select the correct envelope size from the operator panel, the printer
driver, or from MarkVision Professional.
For best performance, use envelopes made from 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond) paper. You can use up
to 105 g/m2 (28 lb bond) weight for the 250-sheet standard tray or 105 g/m2 (28 lb bond)
weight for envelopes as long as the cotton content is 25% or less. Envelopes with 100%
cotton content must not exceed 90 g/m2 (24 lb bond) weight.
Use only new, undamaged envelopes.
For best performance and to minimize jams, do not use envelopes that:
Have excessive curl or twist.
Are stuck together or damaged in any way.
Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts or embossing.
Use metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars.
Have an interlocking design
Have postage stamps attached
Have any exposed adhesive when the flap is in the sealed or closed position
Have nicked edges or bent corners
Have rough, cockle, or laid finishes
Use envelopes that can withstand temperatures of 170°C (338°F) without sealing, excessive
curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions. If you have any doubts about the
envelopes you are considering using, check with the envelope supplier.
Adjust the width guide to fit the width of the envelopes.
Load only one size of envelope at a time in the tray. Envelopes may only be loaded in the
standard tray. Load them with the flap down and the flap to the left of the tray.
A combination of high humidity (over 60%) and the high printing temperatures may seal the
envelopes.

Loading envelopes in the standard tray
The recommended stack height is 10 envelopes; however, in normal environments as many as 15
envelopes may be loaded. In high temperature or humidity environments, only seven envelopes
should be loaded.
1 Pull the standard tray completely out.
2 Squeeze the length guide tabs together as shown in step 2 on page 42. Slide the guide to
the correct position for the size of envelope you are loading.
3 Squeeze the width guide tabs as shown in step 3 on page 42. Slide the width guide to the
correct position for the size of envelope you are loading. Notice the size indicators on the
bottom left of the tray.
4 Push the envelope stack aid tabs toward each other. They snap into place.
5 Flex a stack of envelopes back and forth and then straighten the edges on a level surface.
Press down the corners to flatten them.
Fan the envelopes. This prevents the edges of the envelopes from sticking together and helps
them feed properly.
6 Load envelopes flap side down with the stamp area and flap on the right. The end of the envelope with the stamp area enters the printer first.

7 Insert the standard tray.

Dymo LabelWriter 400 Turbo/Postage Issue


Yes, you are indeed doing something wrong. In terms of the "free" electronic postage offer, what you want to sign up for is the "DYMO Stamps" program, offered via endicia (this is different from endicia's other PAID programs...just be aware).

Simply put, just google "dymo stamps" and the first hit will bring you right to the sign-up location you want.

Just to clarify, unless you have a special program I'm not aware of, stamps.com is most definitely NOT free. They require a monthy fee (of course, they do have a free first month if that's what you're talking about). Regardless, stamps.com DOES work with the LabelWriter 400...but just not with the special "Dymo Stamp Labels" (these "stamps" only work with the free monthly servcie I mentioned earlier, "DYMO Stamps"). You can print up postage/labels via stamps.com just fine using the other size 2-part or 3-part labels sold via stamps.com or dymo.com's store.

good luck!

Envelope Feeder is not accepting the command


> Home > Support & Drivers > Knowledge Base

Solution --> Phaser 4400 Printer: Printing envelopes

Printing EnvelopesEnvelopes can be printed from the optional envelope feeder, the Multi-Purpose Tray, or Tray 1, 2, or 3.
Guidelines for envelope printing
  • Use only paper envelopes.
  • Do not print on the back of the envelope.
  • Never use envelopes with windows, metal clasps, or exposed gummed surfaces.
  • Keep unused envelopes in their packaging to avoid the effects of moisture and dryness, which can affect print quality and cause wrinkling.
  • Envelopes may wrinkle depending on weight and stiffness of the envelope.

Many applications include a tool for creating an envelope document. For example, Microsoft Word includes an Envelopes and Labels feature in the Tools menu. Be sure to:
  • Select faceup.
  • Clear Clockwise Rotation.
  • Select the feed method with the image centered and the stamp on the envelope to the upper left.

caution_image88x30.gif Never use envelopes with windows, metal clasps, or exposed gummed surfaces; they can damage the printer. Damage caused by using unsupported envelopes might not be covered by your printer's warranty.
note_image33x30.gif Note: The heat from the printing process can melt certain types of envelope glue. If the envelope flap sticks shut after printing the test print, tuck the flaps inside the envelopes when printing the remaining envelopes. Printing envelopes from the envelope feeder
  1. Insert the envelopes into the envelope feeder. For more information, refer to the Trays section of the Trays and Paper Guide on the Interactive Documentation CD-ROM.
    • Place the side to be printed faceup.
    • The top of the envelopes should be toward the left of the printer.

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.
