    @ POCBM

    Thank you very much for your explanation. yes it makes much sense. i was extensively told to use only laserprinter envelopes, not to be found when needing them the most, so also folding the slope inwards seemed to help a bit. your solution however was the best. thanks again

The problem is likely the envelopes.
OK, I'll explain what is happening first.
If you think about it this way: The envelope has air in it, not alot but some, as it moves into the fuser "the heater" the air heats up and expands. If the envelope does not have enough "leaks" for the hot air to escape it creates a bubble in the envelope that gets squashed as it moves thru the fuser giving you the wrinkles.
Does that make sense?
Most envelopes (if you have ever looked closlely at them) have small openings in the corners that let the air escape.
Sometimes the opening are to small or not there at all.
Yes the heat can also seal the envelope. Usually not if you are using laser specific envelopes.

Now that was a long winded way of saying try new envelopes made for laser printers.
Hope this helps

We have a Laser Jet Pro CM1415. It wrinkles linen envelopes when printing. Is there a quick fix (adjustment etc.)? It prints slick envelopes OK.


Hello,

that printer is really not designed to print on those envelopes but the wrinkling is usually caused by to much moisture in the envelope or paper stock. When the printer heats the print stock to bond the toner to the paper in the fuser unit the moisture evaporates and causes the paper to wrinkle. Don't know of a fix for it other than use different print stock.

When I try to print #10 envelopes on my HP Laserjet 4 Plus printer through the MP tray, they come ou with wrinkles, smudges and creases. And they are hot! ideas?


Make sure that if you have a setting for paper type you have it set for envelope. This would be found in the setup menus, I just don't remember if this model has that setting, they are getting to be rare now. The other common cause of print problems is the envelopes themselves, if they are old or have been stored where they have been allowed to absorb moisture, you will have a very hard time printing on them. Try some different envelopes if you have them.

On alot of printers when you print envelopes theres a back door on the printer to prevent the curling or wrinkles. Just open the back door when doing envelopes.

Best of luck and have a happy and safe 4th of July weekend!

Select envelope, after you hit print. Run one first on a sheet of regular paper, to see the orientation. Then, just put them in, the way you have it set up for.

Envelopes can be printed from tray 1 or 2. Select the type of envelope you are using from the PRINT dialog box or the driver. In your program, set the margins. Typical margins for a commercial #10 or DL envelope would be: Return Address Top margin 15mm(0.6 Inch) Left margin 15mm(0.6 Inch), Delivery Address Top margin 51mm(2 Inches) Left margin 89mm(3.5 Inches). For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15mm (0.6 Inch) from the edges of the envelope. Avoid printing on the seams of the envelope. Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or more than one flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives that are compatible with the heat and pressure of the printer fuser. the extra flaps and seals can cause wrinkling, creasing and feed jams, could even damage the fuser.
