I'm running Vista and I thought there MUST be a way to print envelopes! So, this is how I figured out how to print envelopes perfectly! No doubt, this would be how the manual would instruct, but it's apparent that none of us are able to locate our printed copies, right? Guilty as charged!

Slide paper tray out; remove paper you have loaded in your tray. Set envelope in tray (face down, with top of envelope flush left) and adjust both side bars (designated as "1" in paper tray diagram - visible when all paper is removed from paper tray) so that they are flush against envelope. Slide back bar (designated as "2" in paper tray diagram - visible when all paper is removed from paper tray) so that it is flush with edge of envelope. Click print.

Believe defaults are set to #10 envelope. Envelope options - check / click on the following: face up, clockwise rotation and "Feed from" Auto Select. Click on / highlight the 5th envelope depicted in the top row of envelope examples.

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.

Printer prints addresses on paper, not envelopes, even though I click all commands correctly.


make sure you feed in the envelopes correctly and adjust the guides to fit the size of envelope you have in the manual feed or paper tray verses the size of envelope you choose in the print settings from the application you are using (MS-Word) e.t.c, also make sure that envelopes have the correct paper type and design for printing i.e( without metalic clips, not too thick to pass through the fuser)
size 10 is usually easy to go through for example.

How do I print an envelope with my MFC 240C?


Printing envelopes is tricky. In the MFC-240C, you have to place them face down (with the flap side facing up), and it's best to load one at a time because sometimes the printer has problems pulling it when there is a stack of envelopes in the paper tray.

Make sure the fences are snug against the envelope when you load it. If you get a lot of jamming when trying to feed envelopes, you may have to run it with the flap open -- sometimes the closed flap sticks up just a bit and gets caught as the envelope is fed through the machine.

To orient the addresses correctly on the envelope, you'll need to use the correct settings, depending on which program you're printing from. In Microsoft Word 2003, for example, there is an Envelopes and Labels option under the Tools menu (click on the Letters and Mailing submenu) that you can use to enter the addresses and make sure they line up.

Envelope jam HP Officejet 8500


Hi,

Try to print envelope through Microsoft Word

Steps:-

1) Click Tools , click Letters and Mailings and then click Envelopes and Labels .
2) Type the Delivery and Return address information.
3) Click Options .
4) On the Envelope Options tab, set the following options:-
  • Envelope size : set to match the loaded envelopes.
  • US only : if desired, select the Delivery point barcode to make it easier for mail sorting machinery to correctly route the envelope.
  • Return address : for Size 10 envelopes only, set the Return Address position .8 inch in the From left section.
5) Select the Printing Options tab and verify that the following settings are selected:
  • Select the Feed Method option that shows the envelope on the far right side with the short edge first.
  • Select Face down .
  • Examine the selected feed method image and verify that the envelope flap is on the left side of the envelope. If it is on the right, select or deselect Clockwise rotation.
6) Click OK and then click Print .

As envelop can not feed correctly every time, it depends on the weight, flap design, paper type and other factors & cause jam, To prevent those you can do.
  • Print envelopes at a higher quality setting so envelope is pulled through the unit more slowly. e.g:- Switch fast to slow mode or slow to best mode.
  • Tuck the flap inside the envelope before loading it into the printer.

Have a nice day...don't forget to rate the solution.

    Printing on a #10 envelope


    Go into your Word Document and print from "Tools" then "Letters and Mailings" and click on Envelopes and Labels. Sometime the perimeter isn't defined and it is on there but it's outside the scope of your envelope, especially if the return address isn't in the correct place also. You may even be able to correct it where you are by decreasing the "window" of your typing space, it's just too large.

    Envelopes and labeles


    Go the "print" dialog and select "settings". Ensure that the paper size, margins and orientation are not set for 8.5x11.  You did not mention the software you are using to print the envelopes/labels so this is the only guess I can give.   I have seen software that made me have to override the settings before.
