Most laser printers have an "S" paper path. They cannot help bending paper. I would suggest you print lables instead of envelopes if you send several letters. If you only send 1, hand address the envelope. Not elegant ut it works.

Why brother mfc 7360n printing envelopes wrinkle paper


Do U mean wrinkle the envelopes?,,,,I can solve some MFC-9840-CDW issues, but the 7369N is a guess. Read your manual or do a google search.....There maybe a setting in the 7360N that adjusts printing for card stock and envelopes....

Put the envelope into the fold-down tray narrow end first with the side you want to print on facing up. After you click print in the application click on the 'options' button in the print dialog box and select the envelope size, check the media types to see if envelopes is listed, pick the most appropriate setting.

Just got new HL-5340D printer. If I try to print address on an envleope, the envelope gets badly creased and is unuseable. Is there an adjustment to prevent this?


Yes, there is. In fact this Brother 5340D does envelopes better than any printer I have ever had!

Open the back of the printer, to the left (when leaning over front of printer) is a small blue lever. Push this down until its horizantal. Open up the manual feed and put your envelopes in. The will feed straight thru without any bends and come out the back nice and uncrinkled.

This works great for labels as well.

Good luck!

Brother 7340 wont print on envelope just keeps getting stuck, tried opennig the back like the book says but still gets stuck


Are you trying to print from the main paper tray with the envelope or from the auxiliary single page feeder? The auxiliary insert should be directly under the "Brother" logo on the front of the printer. Insert the envelope there. If it's a standard light weight envelope and it gets stuck still then I'd suggest there is a paper jam somewhere or possibly the fuser is going bad.

Load and print envelopes


Generally NO. The reason is they have a manual slot and rear exit that keeps the path nearly straight for things like envelopes, labels, cardstock etc so they dont have to make the turn from the tray and from the fuser to the fact down exit tray. If you need to do a mailmerge with numerous envelopes you could 1) print a sheet of labels and stick those to blank envelopes or 2) go to a more advanced machine that has envelope feeder capability. Even a used machine such as a Laserjet 4000 - you can find envelope feeders that just attach on easily for almost nothing on ebay.

Printer HL 5370 DW is wrinkling all envelopes. Is


If it's not wrinkling regular plain paper, then you need to tell the printer you're printing envelopes. Envelopes are thicker than letter paper. When you tell it to print, make sure you click on "Properties" and set the job for "Envelopes". Also, make sure the guides are set to fit the envelopes snugly.

Brother MFC-9840CDW wrinkles envelopes. Brother says this is "normal", and that the only way to 'fix' it is to open the back of the printer EVERY TIME YOU PRINT AN ENVELOPE and make some kind of...


Problem Solved!

I have a Brother MFC-8480 DN all in one printer, copier, fax and scanner.

I discovered that envelopes wrinkle because users, like me, didn't know that Brothers built in a no-wrinkle, pass through exit for envelopes, labels and thick paper.

Envelopes were never to be printed by inserting them in the front and letting them wrap around a HOT roller and get cooked and wrinkled. The way it works:

An envelope is inserted in the front and goes straight out the back of the printer through an exit door, completely avoiding the hot roll-through mechanism.

Take a look. On the back of the machine is a large pass through exit door. Just snap it open. You will see one blue lever on each side of the opening. Snap them both straight down to the . . .ta da. . ."envelope icons".

Put three envelopes in the front and they will print straight out the back, perfect and wrinkle free. After printing your envelopes, snap the blue levers back up and shut the door. Takes about five seconds to open the door and snap down the blue levers down/up.

Happy envelope printing.
