Use The Recommended Print Area
For the best
printing results, adjust the top and bottom margins of your document to
within the recommended printing area shown below.
Click on the paper size listed for the recommended print area settings: A4 / B5 / A5 / 4 x 6 / 4 x 8 / 5 x 7 / Credit Card, Letter and Legal, Envelopes (DL / COM#10)
Caution: When printing is performed outside the recommended printing area, the top and bottom edges of the paper may curl, the print quality may deteriorate, or the printed side may be smudged.
The printer has both the recommended print area and the printable area, according to the paper size.
Recommended print area: This indicates the recommended print area.
Printable area: Although this indicates the printable area, degradation of print quality may occur.
Letter / Legal
Envelopes ( DL / #10 )

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 print envelopes a lot for my business.
What I do is I use the regular paper feed, and I open the flap on the envelope so that it's flatter. Simply slide the paper guide to adjust to the size of the envelope.
Also, typically the orientation for printing envelopes is sideways. You put the left edge of the envelope in the printer first. If you are unsure of the orientation, simply do your first print on plain paper. Then you'll know how to insert the envelope.
