    I should have left more info in my question... The ink stain only appears on an envelope. It does not appear when printing it on regular paper...
    It seems the envelope is getting abused b/c of it's thickness... ?? And it only happens on the corner where the envelope is being fed through the feeder.

You seem to have clogged nozzles/printhead. Take out cartridges, do a thorough clean down where cartridges sit, the printhead, even the roller as well. Run your printers own cleaning maintenance before you do it manually with cleaning solution. Problem should be gone when you reinsert cartridges. Don't froget to reset ink levels and cartridges. good luck!!!

    Oh, sorry fourintow, i was assuming all printing affected. Ok, in that case You need to tell the printer in the printer property settings when you print (paper quality settings etc or similar) what you are printing (ie envelope) otherwise your poor printer assumes it is default printing plain white normal thickness paper and cannot cope. Try this. Hope it works for you.

Envelope jam HP Officejet 8500


Hi,

Try to print envelope through Microsoft Word

Steps:-

1) Click Tools , click Letters and Mailings and then click Envelopes and Labels .
2) Type the Delivery and Return address information.
3) Click Options .
4) On the Envelope Options tab, set the following options:-
  • Envelope size : set to match the loaded envelopes.
  • US only : if desired, select the Delivery point barcode to make it easier for mail sorting machinery to correctly route the envelope.
  • Return address : for Size 10 envelopes only, set the Return Address position .8 inch in the From left section.
5) Select the Printing Options tab and verify that the following settings are selected:
  • Select the Feed Method option that shows the envelope on the far right side with the short edge first.
  • Select Face down .
  • Examine the selected feed method image and verify that the envelope flap is on the left side of the envelope. If it is on the right, select or deselect Clockwise rotation.
6) Click OK and then click Print .

As envelop can not feed correctly every time, it depends on the weight, flap design, paper type and other factors & cause jam, To prevent those you can do.
  • Print envelopes at a higher quality setting so envelope is pulled through the unit more slowly. e.g:- Switch fast to slow mode or slow to best mode.
  • Tuck the flap inside the envelope before loading it into the printer.

Have a nice day...don't forget to rate the solution.

    Printing small envelopes


    In Word 2007, use the Mailing > Envelopes > Options section.

    In 2003 I think it was under Tools > Envelopes & Mailings > Options.

    There you'll be able to specify if the manual feed is top first or edge first, to the left, centered, or to the right, and how far over and down to place the address and return address.

    After a few adjustment runs, it works great.

    Epson Stylus NX400 While printing envelopes, I keep getting a black ink blot on the bottom right hand corner of the envelopes. It happens to about every 1 out of 4 envelopes. I printed the return addr


    Envelopes can give all sorts of problems Back corner is flicking up. Try rolling the envelopes in the opposite direction to the "bowing" as they have been through machine once.

    Envelope printing


    You need to insert the envelope in the manual feed area and open the exit door at the back this allows the envelope to go straight through the printer hopefully limiting creasing. Check the envelope settings in windows make sure that you are using the correct size and feed selection.

    Printing return address on #10 24lb regular envelope


    Are you free hand addressing or are you using "Word - envelopes and labels" tool. It should be goof free. If you are, check the pull down rollers on that end of the printer for damage or contamination. When you lift up the cover like you're installing a new cartridge, you should see the black rollers. Clean them with a q-tip and alcohol, wiping across while rolling it with your finger. If you're not using Word, pull down the tools tab and select letters and mailings, then envelopes and labels.
