I'm having trouble addressing an large envelope the printer wants to print from the upper photograph tray and not accept the envelope from the lower tray. I have the MX922 printer.


The upper tray on my 6120 has adjustable guides on either side of the document and can be set from 2" to 8.75" wide. It is not intended just for photos! I use it for ALL envelopes that will fit. I use the MS WORD "Mailings", "Envelopes", "Options", "Envelope Size" menu to tell the printer what size the envelope will be (any size not listed in the standard list can be customized from the CUSTOM option at the bottom of the envelope list). Your word processor should have something similar. Running from the tray should be a straighter run and will actually place less distortion stress on the envelope.

Use a mailing label for anything larger than 8.75". You can download a program from Avery (and probably other label manufacturers) that really makes labels simple to produce. Labels should also be run from the rear tray if possible so they won't wrap around your rollers.
Happy Printing.

Trying to print on a #10 envelope from iMac 27 with Os 10.5.1 using iWork. Printer will not load paper


I am on an iMac using OSX 10.5.8 and printing on an Epson R1800. With iWork, word processing module I set up the envelope to print and under the File menu, select page setup and choose #10 Envelope with Portrait orientation. I feed the envelope into the printer in the normal horizontal, top first, print surface up. In the File menu I select Print and hit Return. Most of the time this works. Sometimes the envelope feeds through without printing, and occasionally the envelope won't feed but the printer goes through the printing cycle. The R1800 is not the ideal envelope printer. It is made to print photos on photographic paper. I use an old fashioned typewriter to address envelopes.

Dont no how to print on envelopes, they seem to be to long to go in where paper fits


When you open up your printer settings (got to printer and right click on properties), go to the advanced tab. In there you'll find various setting for print quality and paper sizes, choose envelopes. Make sure you insert the envelopes into you printer as specified on the printer.

How do i print envelopes


Hello!
Printing envelopes can depend on your computer and the program you're using as well as the printer.

Go into a program on your computer that let's you write and print documents (for instance Microsoft Word).

Look around for an "Envelopes" option. In MS Word, in the bar at the top, go to "Tools", "Letters and Mailings" then "Envelopes and Labels".

Enter the required addresses and look at the "Feed" window at the bottom right to see which direction to put the envelopes in the printer.

Now look for a slot somewhere on the front of the printer, or maybe a place on the top or back that has a picture of an envelope on it. If you don't see anything, refer to your documentation to see where the envelope slot is.

Once everything is in place, click the "Print" button in your software on your computer.

That's all there is to it! If you don't have MS Word, look around on your computer for another word processing program. Most computers come with a simple word processor at least.

Good luck!

How to type an address onto a std bussiness envelope


Insert the envelope vertically. In your word processing program you should have an option for printing envelopes; usually in the TOOLS menu. Your program will figure out how to center the text.

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.
