At first try the full A4 paper.if the print is ok then try to use the custom paper setting and the proper paper feeding,means either portrait or landscape.

How do I print envelopes with my hp c6180

There are 2 things that need to be done. 1. You need to make sure your document is set up correctly.
If you use MS Word 2003, go to Tools, then Letters and Mailings, then Envelopes and Labels to create your envelope. For Word 2007/2010,

2. When you select print go to preferences. From there you will need to set the paper type to envelope. On the application side, you will typically need to make sure your document size is that of an envelope.

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.

Print en enveolppe with hp color laser jet 2600n

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.

Envelope printing

its possible you dont have the right margins set, so it is printing outside the borders of the envelope.
check also your printer drivers to make sure its set for envelope, and also, generally the envelope goes in at length, not the width.

Need to print a half-fold card envelope with HP Photosmart C4480

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. Blu

Envelope margin error

have you adjusted the page setup on your software?
I'm assuming you're using Word to print a mail merge. yes?

Check that the margins are setup properly in the "word document"
Go undetr file, page setup, and confirm the envelope size is set properly.
Check the page setup in the printing preferences.
File, Print, Printing Preferences.

The printer accepts whatever margins microsoft word tells it to use.

Best wishes

Printing Envelopes

Be sure you have set the PRNIT PREFFERENCES on your program that you are using to print the envelope to accept a #10 envelope and not 8.5x11 paper, you ALSO must set the PRINTER PREFERNECE to MANUAL FEED and not automatic so it won't look to the paper tray.

Printing envelopes

Try setting the page setup to 8.5x11 and adjust the margins to landscape, top and left margin approx 4". A lot of times the envelope templates are afterthoughts.

Pagemaker programmer's supervisor, "Forget that template, nobody will ever print envelopes in Pagemaker"

Hope this helps!

Printing an envelope in cs3 on an epson stylus photo r1800

You can try using Microsoft word in printing on envelopes, it is easier. On my MS word>tools>letters and mailings>envelopes and labels>click on feed and use the fourth from the left option.
Load the envelope at the right side of the printer> the envelope flap should be on the left facing the printer.

This would depend upon the software you wish to use. For instance MS Word has an envelope printing utility built in. Access it through TOOLS > LETTERS & MAILINGS > ENVELOPES & LABELS, use the HELP feature to read help info on the settings required. If you wish to use a simlple text editor like Word pad, simply set the PAGE SETUP settings to reflect the media you are using; for instancce set paper size to ENVELOPE C5, and then the margins to something like Left = 60 Right = 100 Top = 80 Bottom = 50 Click OK and this will then mean when you print your document the text will be kept toward the center of the envelope. Change the envelope and margins to whatever suits you best. Slip the envelope into the printer (face up and flap to the bottom) and push the guard up. You should be good to go.
