    I can't print a custom sized paper--trying to print cards out and I get the paper too small error. The thing is, it DOES print sometimes. And I don't know why--I do it under the same circumstances each time and it doesn't work 90% of the time, but once in a while it does. Very frustrating.

    When I try to print 4 1/2 X 9.5 envelopes I also get the error message that the paper is too small. I tried to customize the size and the message is the same.

I had the same problem with my 7260 and I finally changed the paper type from automatic to plain paper. Go to either Properties or Preferences in your printer set up window. Somehow this turns off some sort of sensor. It might work for you, too. To the person who is using the Hallmark program, that is where I first encountered the problem, I then tried to print an envelope from Word and the same error message came up. I found this solution online from someone using a three in one printer/fax/copier so I tried it and it worked for me, too! I hope this helps......

I had problems printing 4 X 6, and found out that I needed to go into the printer mode, and change the tray feed from "main tray" to photo tray.  Try that one.

How to print #10 envelopes on a Xerox 3610 printer?


Solution : Print on Envelopes You can print envelopes from the Bypass Tray only.
Guidelines for Printing Envelopes
  • Print quality depends on the quality and construction of the envelopes. Try another envelope brand if you do not get desired results.
  • Maintain constant temperatures and relative humidity.
  • Store unused envelopes in their packaging to avoid excess moisture and dryness which can affect print quality and cause wrinkling. Excessive moisture can cause the envelopes to seal before or during printing.
  • Remove air bubbles from the envelopes before loading them into the tray by setting a heavy book on top of them.
  • In the print driver software, select Envelope as the paper type.
  • Do not use padded envelopes. Use envelopes that lie flat on a surface.
  • Do not use envelopes with heat activated glue.
  • Do not use envelopes with press and seal flaps.
  • Use only paper envelopes.
  • Do not use envelopes with windows or metal clasps.
To Load Envelopes in the Bypass Tray:
  1. Open the Bypass Tray.

    NOTE: If you do not load envelopes in the Bypass Tray right after they have been removed from the packaging, they can bulge. Flatten them to avoid jams.
  4. To load envelopes, select an option:
    • For Number 10 envelopes, load the envelopes with the short edge going into the printer, flaps down, and flaps to the right.
    • For C5 envelopes, do one of the following. If the envelopes wrinkle, try another option.
      • Insert envelopes with the print side up, flaps closed and down, and flaps going into the printer.
      • Insert envelopes with the print side up, flaps closed and down, and flaps going into the printer.
    • NOTE: When loading Monarch or DL envelopes, remove the Multipurpose Tray.

    NOTE: To navigate through the menu, use the Up or Down arrow buttons.

How can I print envelopes on my HP C5180. I've had it over 2 years and have never been able to get it to print any size envelopes. I always get a 'paper mismatch' message. HP tech support has never...


I tried all of the suggestions on here and nothing worked. My envelopes are 5x7.3. So, I finally just put in 5x7 and lo and behold, even though there truly was a paper mismatch this time since that was NOT the size of the envelopes, they printed. I did have to move the text boxes some to make them print correctly. So, I guess the solution for my printer is to actually mismatch the size of the paper/envelope so that you will NOT get the "paper mismatch" error message. Will it work on other size envelopes? I have no clue. This is the first time I've ever been able to print an envelope at all with this printer that I've had 2 or 3 years.

How to print an envelop


nstructions Use the following steps to ensure that you are ready to print envelopes. Your printer can have either a single envelope or multiple envelopes loaded and ready for printing.
  • If you are printing a single envelope, you can use the single envelope slot and leave your paper in the lower (IN) tray. This allows you to print the envelope and then a letter.
  • If you are printing a stack of envelopes, use the lower (IN) tray for loading the stack of envelopes.
To Load a Single Envelope
  1. Do not remove the paper from the lower (IN) tray. Be sure the card guide is in the down position, before using the single envelope slot.
  2. Remove a single envelope from its packaging.
  3. Slide the envelope evenly into the single envelope slot. The single envelope slot is located on the right side of the upper (OUT) tray. The envelope should be loaded with the address side down (flap side up).
  4. Make sure the creased flap edge of the envelope aligns with the right side of the single envelope slot.
  5. Slide the envelope through the slot until it stops. Make sure the envelope is not bent and is straight in the envelope slot.
    NOTE: To minimize print skew, use envelopes with rectangular flaps rather than triangular flaps.
To Load Multiple Envelopes
  1. Slide the paper width adjuster to its leftmost position.
  2. Pull out the paper length adjuster and remove any paper from the IN tray.
  3. Remove up to 20 envelopes from their packing and tap the short edge of the envelopes on a flat surface to even the stack.
  4. Slide the envelopes evenly into the IN tray, address side down (flap side up).
  5. Slide the paper width adjuster to the right until it gently touches the left edge of the envelope stack.
  6. For size Invitation A2 and C6 Envelopes, press the inside of the paper length adjuster handle to release and lower it.
  7. For all sizes of envelopes, push the paper length adjuster in toward the envelopes until it stops. Make sure the envelopes are flat in the lower tray and not bent.
Set up the Printer Properties
  1. Select Start on the taskbar. Choose Settings, then Printers. Right-click the printer. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
  2. Select the Paper or Setup tab depending on the version of the printer driver software.
  3. In the Paper Options section, select the desired envelope size from the Paper Size drop-down box.
  4. Click OK.
Print Print the envelope from your chosen program. From most applications, just select the File menu, then choose Print. After Printing the Envelopes Reset the printer and the printer properties for the kind of printing you will be doing next.
  1. Remove any remaining envelopes from the lower (IN) tray.
  2. Slide the paper width adjuster to its leftmost position.
  3. Load the desired paper into the lower (IN) tray.
  4. On the computer, Select Start on the taskbar. Choose Settings, then Printers. Right-click the printer. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
  5. Select the Paper or Setup tab depending on the version of the printer driver software.
  6. In the Paper Options section, select the desired paper size from the Paper Size drop-down box.
  7. Click OK.

Trouble printing envelopes on kodak esp3 printer


Have you tried this procedure?
----------------------------------------------------------
Loading Envelopes
You can load plain envelopes into the paper tray of your Kodak ESP 3 All-in-One printer.
Important Do not use envelopes with cutouts or cellophane windows.
1 Remove any other paper from the paper tray.
2 Insert one or more envelopes into the right side of the paper tray with the print side down and
the envelope flaps on the right, pointing left.

3 Squeeze the paper-width guide and move it to its right-most position up against the envelopes.
4 Leave the paper tray open while the envelopes are loaded.

If you have and it's not printing correctly, there is probably a problem with the document you're trying to print.

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.

PIXMA 830 Smudges when printing envelopes


On my MP780, be careful to select the appropriate paper type; I was getting black smudges on the left side of my envelopes until I explicitly set that my paper type was "envelope" from "plain paper".  
Another idea is to adjust the "ink drying wait time" to a higher level.

You will probably have to change your paper settings on the printer itself to proceed without an error. In the additional settings>Paper Size> change it from Ltr to Envelope.
