When printing envelopes ensure you set paper/media type to Envelopes, and feed via tray 1/bypass . Paper type setting sets correct fuser temp, the fuser is the hot bit at the rear that "melts" the image into the paper.

If paper type is set correctly then I recommend you change the fuser unit.

Ensure envelopes are standard type. ie you are printing on paper envelopes

    pic of fuser and part info

    Better off buying a Maintenance kit if purchasing a fuser, they include all the other wearing parts, should last 200 000 prints and HP printers DO, expessially these older solid ones

HP Color LaserJet CM2320nf MFP Envelope wrinkles

On alot of printers when you print envelopes theres a back door on the printer to prevent the curling or wrinkles. Just open the back door when doing envelopes.

You may need a shop to increase the fuser temperature. You also may just need a new fuser. In printing preferences you need to make sure you're telling the printer you're using envelopes or labels. When the toner rubs off, the fuser is just not hot enough.
