SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Envelopes all come out of the printer wrinkled

Open the back of the printer. You will see 2 little blue levers on either side. Put them in the opposite direction, that is, if they are up, snap them down. I dont know the mechanics of this, but it worked for me.

Open the manual feed tray door (that is the door on the front that has the "Brother" logo on it. Narrow the feed tray guides to filt your envelope. Envelopes feed it with flap side up and to the left.

For details about how to load an envelope into the printer, see the user's manual.

The procedure for performing envelope printing is as follows:

1. Fold down the envelope flap.

2. When loading the envelope in the rear tray, orient the envelope so that the flap is on the left and the folded surface is facing down.

3. Open the printer driver setup window, and select Envelope from the Media Type list on the Main tab.

Printer printing blank evelopes ....everything else prints ok. Lexmark printer Z705


Check your setup in your envelope printing software, make sure it's set for the size envelope you're using, it might be printing in the air next to the envelope.

I am unable to print an address on an envelope.... it comes out blank


Hello,

It sounds like to paper setting is wrong. In the configuration you can set if the envelope in on the right side, left side or center of the paper feed. If it is set one way and you feed the envelope the other way the printer will print but on the wrong end of the feed area so nothing will be on the envelope. Try this, print an address label as you would on the envelope but just use a full sheet of paper. If it prints where you can see it, then feed the envelope on that side, or change the feed settings in your software to print on the other side. Office and most other programs have this setting. In MS word the orientation setting is on the envelope and label screen on the right side of the pop up box.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

LEXMARK X1240 WON'T PRINT ENVELOPES


I was so pissed off that so many on the web had this same problem that I spent many hours trying to get it to work. I am sure that this is not how it is designed to work but my envelopes got printed.First I went under File, Print, Properties to Page Set-up for envelope #10. I also ********** print colour images in black and white which someone else had suggested- although it might not be necessary. I selected quick print but normal should probably work too. I then closed out these two windows. Then under tools, I selected Letters and Mailing, then envelopes and labels, typed in the addresses, went under options and changed the feed from automatic to default tray, which automatically changes the feed method to the 4th one out of 6 which wasn't what I wanted but ignore it. Check off face up. Putting the envelope into the printer was bizarre- it has to be inserted very far into the printer until only 2-3 inches of the envelope stick above the horizontal surface of the printer. It must be inserted into the middle of the paper holder, until it is just 2-3 inches sticking up, and then slide it all the way over to the right where the printer indicates the envelope should be- nice and straight against the right margin. Do not use the movable paper holders that they suggest you swing over to the right to hold your envelope- or printing won't occur for some odd reason. Press O.K. on envelopes and labels and then press print. Good luck- it worked for me.

My lexmark will print page, business cards, labels, pics, etc. But it will not print envelopes. Looks, sounds, and acts like its printing. But when it spits out the envelope nothing is printed on it.


There must be an issue with the size of the envelope the printer is expecting. If you're using Microsoft Word, check under "Letters and Mailings" and then "Evevolopes and Labels" to check the size you have set the envelope to. Perhaps its also a setting in File and Page Setup or in the printers own settings under Control Panel and Printers. Sorry for not being of more help but if its not jamming or giving an error then its probably just set to the wrong envelope size.

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.
