How can I edit custom printing size so that I can print envelopes?

In the help that I've read so far, people have an option for adjusting custom page sizes in the device settings. I don't seem to have this option. I'm trying to print envelopes that are 10.8 x 4.5" Thank you

Your best option going forward is to get sofware that prints envelopes. It will have the choices you need in order to have them print the way you want. Avery has program(s?) that have been used for this purpose. search for this list of keywords to find it:

    If anyone else is trying to print envelopes with this printer, my best advice at the moment is to save yourself a few hours and write the addresses by hand! Or, use labels. Thanks

    My apologies - it has been some years since i last did this and the avery software at the time was more flexible than now. You may want to search "envelope printing software free". one reslut I saw was for this product :http://www.softpedia.com/get/Authoring-t...

    No, not at all! That's great - yes, I'll look into this option and some others around those search terms and see how I go. I appreciate your help.

Some thoughts.

Envelopes won't print from bypass tray. Cause:
Extended tray is not set up properly for envelopes. Solution: thumbsup.gif Fixed! thumbsdn.gif Did not fix. Enter tools "Login" 1,1,1,1,1 Touch buttons with the following names in that order: System Settings System Settings Common Settings Other Settings Scroll down to "Extended Tray" Next to "Extended Tray" it may say "Inverter" if it does go to change settings then change it to "Offset Stacking" Close out tools.

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.

SOURCE: Can't print custom envelope on HP Photosmart 7280

OK, to make this clearer, I had the same problem on my HP C7180. It seems to be rampant throughout their Multifunction printers.

My Fix, combining several others:

1. Go to Printers and Faxes on your Start Menu. In the Printers window, select Server Properties from the File menu. Use the Forms tab of the Print Server Properties dialog box to view printer forms. You may also see lots of forms that you wish your printer could see, but don't worry, it'll see the one you create now. And be sure when you create your form that you use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height. Usually for envelopes you will print in landscape mode.
2. Select the Create A New Form check box.
3. Enter a new name for the Form in the Form Description For field.
4. Use the fields in the Measurements area to set the paper size and margins. *Use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height*.
5. Choose the Save Form button to save the form. The Save Form button only gets pick-able when you type in a different name than what's there already.

Now go to your document program, such as Word. Make sure the window for the document you want to print is the active window. Select File/Page Setup..., Paper Size Tab, and there select the form you just created from the dropdown list

Still in your document program, select File/Print... then Properties. Select the Features tab, which may be differently named. Under Resizing Options/Size dropdown, select More... and there you'll find your newly created form down at the bottom, under Custom. Pick it.

If you're printing envelopes or other things where the way you view it it's wider side-to-side than it is tall, be sure and select "landscape" in both "page setup..." on your document program and in File/Print.../Properties/Features?Basic Options.

When I did all this methodically, I was able to print my Christmas envelopes. Yay!

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.

How to print envelopes


1.Buy envelopes at any office supply store. They come in all shapes, sizes, textures and colors, so choose ones that go with the type of invitation you are sending out.

2.Open Microsoft Word 2007 and click on the Mailings tab.

3.Click on Envelopes in the Create section.

4.Click on the Envelopes tab when the Envelopes and Labels box comes up. The box will probably come up with the Envelopes tab open, so you may not need to do this.

5.Enter the recipient's address in the Delivery Address box. Invitation envelopes should include the names of everyone invited--for example: Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Smith and family. Don't worry about the font at this point--you can change it later.

6.Enter your return address in the Return Address box. As with the Delivery Address, you can change the font later.

7.Click on Options. Use the drop-down menu in the Envelope Options tab to change the size of the envelope if needed. The packaging of the envelopes that you purchased will have information about the size of the envelopes. It is very important that you choose the correct size so that the envelopes print correctly.

8.Adjust the font of the delivery and return addresses. Click on Font in each section and change the font style or size. You can also bold, italicize or choose other options regarding the font.

9.Adjust the placement of the delivery and return addresses on the envelopes. In each section, click the arrows in the "From left" or "From top" boxes. In the preview section below, you can see the movement of the addresses as you adjust the placement. Line up everything so that it looks good to you.

10.Click on the Printing Options tab. This is important because you must select how you feed the envelopes into your printer. Choose the correct way that they are fed, whether they are fed into the printer face up or face down, and if they should be fed in manually. This will all depend on your specific printer. Consult your owner's manual for this information if you are unsure. Click OK and you will return to the Envelopes and Labels box.

11.Insert the envelopes into your printer. Click Print once you have everything formatted and arranged how you want. You should print one envelope first to make sure the layout is correct. Once you've confirmed it printed correctly, print all your envelopes.

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.

I am too stupid to print an envelope


No, your not. The M24 has to be the hardest machine on earth to print an envelope on, It is the biggest headache I have ever seen in printing. Here are the instructions and good luck.

NOTE: The PCL driver is the only driver supported for printing envelopes. There is no support for printing to envelopes using the Adobe PostScript® printer driver. It is necessary to complete all steps to successfully print envelopes.

NOTE: If printing through a server, changes to the driver must be made at the server level.

To set up the custom size paper for the printer:

NOTE: The setup of the custom size paper is a one-time step. Once the custom size is setup it remains an available paper size until it is changed.
  1. At the workstation, click on [Start], point to [Settings], then select [Printers].
  2. Right-click on your printer and select [Properties] from the menu. The Printer Properties window will be displayed.

    NOTE: Use the custom size paper in the printer driver when printing within an application.

  3. Select the [Configuration] tab.
  4. Select [Bypass Feed Orientation] and make sure it is set to Portrait in order to feed the envelopes long edge feed (LEF).
  5. Select [Custom Paper Size].
  6. Select one of the five custom sizes.

    NOTE: There are five custom sizes that can be set up for use in the printer driver properties. Custom Paper Size can be given an individual name by selecting [Name]and typing the name for the custom size, such as, envelope. The name will then appear as an option in output size.

    Three types of envelopes are supported:
Type for Envelope Metric Size Imperial Size Monarch 98.4 mm x 191 mm 3.9 x 7.5 Inch Commercial #10 105 mm x 241 mm 4 x 9.5 Inch DL 110 mm x 220 mm 4 x 8.6 Inch
  1. Enter the short edge and long edge values for the envelope size you are using. The driver will now show the new custom size as one of the choices in Output Size.
  2. Click [OK].
To set your printing preferences for the printer:
  1. At the workstation, click on [Start], point to [Settings], then select [Printers].
  2. Right-click on the printer you want to print envelopes and select [Properties] from the menu that will be displayed.
  3. Select [Printing Preferences].
  4. Select [Tray 5] (Bypass) for the Paper Source.
  5. Select [Heavyweight 2 (170-220 g/m²)] for the Paper Type.
  6. Select the custom size you created for envelopes for the Output Size.
  7. Click [OK] twice to exit the Printing Preferences and the Properties windows.
To print envelopes at the workstation using Microsoft Word®:
  1. Open your Word application.
  2. Select [File] on the top left of the toolbar.
  3. Select [Print] from the menu. The Printer window will be displayed.
  4. Select the printer that you will use to print the envelopes. This printer will use the same driver where you defined the custom paper size.
  5. Select [Close].

    NOTE:If you do not select the correct driver you will not be able to select the correct paper size in Page Setup.
To print envelopes at the workstation using Microsoft Word Page Setup:
  1. Open your Word application.
  2. Select [File] on the top left of the toolbar.
  3. Select [Page Setup] from the menu. The Page Setup window will be displayed.
  4. Select the [Paper Size] tab.
  5. Use the paper size pull-down to select the paper size you defined in the driver. The paper size will be listed by the name you gave it in the driver setup. The default will be custom 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5.
  6. Make sure the orientation is set to Landscape and select [OK]. At this point edit the page with the information you want printed on the envelope.
  7. Select [File] from the toolbar.
  8. Select [Print].
To load envelopes at the printer:

Load the envelopes into Paper Tray 5 (Bypass Tray). The orientation needs to be long edge feed (LEF) with the flap closed and the flap side at the lead edge, and the print side facing down. The printer is now set to print on the envelope.

NOTE: Load a maximum of 10 envelopes into Tray 5 (Bypass Tray) at a time. You may be able to fit a few more depending on the envelope's thickness but do not exceed the max fill line on the tray. The envelope may wrinkle depending on its weight and stiffness. The machine is not designed to handle high-capacity production envelope printing.
