With either Microsoft word or Corel Word Perfect when I go to print envelopes they always print in red. Cartridges are self refilled but work fine other wise. (Refilling may be unrelated) Any way, when I do a letter it prints black and when I then print an envelope, it prints red. Any suggestions appreciated.

1.Buy envelopes at any office supply store. They come in all shapes, sizes, textures and colors, so choose ones that go with the type of invitation you are sending out.
2.Open Microsoft Word 2007 and click on the Mailings tab.
3.Click on Envelopes in the Create section.
4.Click on the Envelopes tab when the Envelopes and Labels box comes up. The box will probably come up with the Envelopes tab open, so you may not need to do this.
5.Enter the recipient's address in the Delivery Address box. Invitation envelopes should include the names of everyone invited--for example: Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Smith and family. Don't worry about the font at this point--you can change it later.
6.Enter your return address in the Return Address box. As with the Delivery Address, you can change the font later.
7.Click on Options. Use the drop-down menu in the Envelope Options tab to change the size of the envelope if needed. The packaging of the envelopes that you purchased will have information about the size of the envelopes. It is very important that you choose the correct size so that the envelopes print correctly.
8.Adjust the font of the delivery and return addresses. Click on Font in each section and change the font style or size. You can also bold, italicize or choose other options regarding the font.
9.Adjust the placement of the delivery and return addresses on the envelopes. In each section, click the arrows in the "From left" or "From top" boxes. In the preview section below, you can see the movement of the addresses as you adjust the placement. Line up everything so that it looks good to you.
10.Click on the Printing Options tab. This is important because you must select how you feed the envelopes into your printer. Choose the correct way that they are fed, whether they are fed into the printer face up or face down, and if they should be fed in manually. This will all depend on your specific printer. Consult your owner's manual for this information if you are unsure. Click OK and you will return to the Envelopes and Labels box.
11.Insert the envelopes into your printer. Click Print once you have everything formatted and arranged how you want. You should print one envelope first to make sure the layout is correct. Once you've confirmed it printed correctly, print all your envelopes.
No, you can print on any envelope size. As far as addresses are concerned, you need to setup a template for the envelope size in your program. What program do you have for this function, do you have Microsoft Word or come other word processor like that?
use the hp software ..and use the envelopes templates in the setup of the page ..or ...just open Microsoft office word ..and select the mailings and in the left side will be the envelopes template ..(office 2007)
When you go into the print properties in Word, you can specify the paper size that will be used in the bypass tray. Depending on which driver you are using, the settings will be a little different, but there should be an option to select the input tray -- Bypass Tray -- and paper size.
As for the orientation, Word will show you a recommendation for how to place the envelope, but this recommendation isn't always right. It's a good idea to run a test envelope through and see which way the addresses print. (The envelopes should always be face down.)
Printing envelopes is tricky. In the MFC-240C, you have to place them face down (with the flap side facing up), and it's best to load one at a time because sometimes the printer has problems pulling it when there is a stack of envelopes in the paper tray.
Make sure the fences are snug against the envelope when you load it. If you get a lot of jamming when trying to feed envelopes, you may have to run it with the flap open -- sometimes the closed flap sticks up just a bit and gets caught as the envelope is fed through the machine.
To orient the addresses correctly on the envelope, you'll need to use the correct settings, depending on which program you're printing from. In Microsoft Word 2003, for example, there is an Envelopes and Labels option under the Tools menu (click on the Letters and Mailing submenu) that you can use to enter the addresses and make sure they line up.
I'm printing wedding invitation envelopes (or A6) and had to set both my C4480 and psc1315 to a regular size 8.5x11 letter size but changed my margins to reflect the smaller size for my envelope with the left side of the screen being the more narrow margin. After adjusting the top margin accordingly, I fed the envelopes, flap side down and straight into the printer and voila...envelope addresses are printed. Good luck.
Usually letter envelopes are insert long-way into your printer. I recommend using the Microsoft Word envelope wizard to print Sender and/or Recipient addresses on envelopes. Here's how it works:
1) Launch Microsoft Word. 2) Click Tools > Letters and Mailings > Envelopes and Labels... 3) Type in what you want to see on the envelope. 4) The default feed direction is shown in the lower right corner of the dialog box. To change it, click Options and select the Printing Options tab. Adjust the settings as you please. 5) Click OK to exit the Options Dialog Box 6) Click Print (in the upper right corner of the "Envelopes and Labels" dialog box.
I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
