This is likely because of high humidity.
Even a small amount of moisture will affect the glue under heat & pressure from fuser.
Store envelopes in a very dry place.

There is a way I believe to release the tension on the fuser for envelopes.
Check the control panel on this printer, and if you are using the Manual Paper Tray, set the settings to envelope.

The fuser will ease up the tension in the fuser, and pass the envelope through at a different speed (I think speeds it up)
So that you do not have that problem.

Is it humid where you live?

The envelope printing problem in hp laser and inkjet printer?


Envelopes can cause many problems for laser printers. Choose envelopes that are close to 20-lb paper in weight and thickness. Also, make sure that the adhesive on the envelope is capable of withstanding the heat that the fuser puts out to keep the printing on the page. If you don’t, the envelopes will come out of the printer already sealed. If envelopes are coming out of the printer wrinkled, they may be too stiff for the paper path. Open the rear of the printer and let them exit at that location instead. This will help.thanks.

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.

How do I print envelopes in the printer Samsung SCX 4824fn? thanks


• Successful printing on envelopes depends upon the

quality of the envelopes. When selecting envelopes,

consider the following factors:

- Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should

not exceed 90 g/m2 or jamming may occur.

- Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should

lie flat with less than 6 mm curl, and should not

contain air.

- Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled,

nicked, or otherwise damaged.

- Temperature: You should use envelopes that are

compatible with the heat and pressure of the

machine during operation.

• Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp and

well creased folds.

• Do not use stamped envelopes.

• Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows,

coated lining, self-adhesive seals, or other synthetic

materials.

• Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.

• Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope
extends all the way to the corner of the envelope.

Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with

more than one flap that folds over to seal must use

adhesives compatible with the machine's fusing

temperature for 0.1 second. Check your machine's

specification to view the fusing temperature, see

page 82. The extra flaps and strips might cause

wrinkling, creasing, or jams, and may even damage

the fuser.

• For the best print quality, position margins no closer

than 15 mm from the edges of the envelope.

• Avoid printing over the area where the envelope's
seams meet.

Place the side to be printed facing up.

Can't print DL envelopes on a Pixma iP4600


Hi ...

If you like to print DL envolopes, check the below 3 points and I am sure you will be able to print from your printer.

Prepare the printer:
  1. Open the Rear Tray and pull out the Paper Support. Put your finger in the rounded indent of the Paper Support and pull it out until it stops. (See <1> in Figure 1 below.)

  2. Open the Paper Output Tray. Put your finger in the rounded indent beside the Paper Output Tray and open it gently. (See <2> in Figure 1 below.)

  3. Open the Output Tray Extension. Open up and set the Output Tray Extension completely by pressing down the hollow on its front side. (See <3> in Figure 1 below.)

  4. Adjust the position of the Paper Thickness Lever. Set it to the right when printing on envelopes or T-shirt transfers, and left when printing on any other type of paper. (See <4> in Figure 1 below.)


    * Figure 1

  5. Load the envelope.
    1. Load the envelope against the right side of the Rear Tray. (See <1> in Figure 3 below.)
    2. Load the envelope with the address side facing UP and the rear flaps DOWN on the left. (See Figure 2 below or, <b> in Figure 3 below.)

      * Figure 2

    3. Pinch the Paper Guide and slide it against the left side of the envelope. (See <2> in Figure 3 below.)

      * Figure 3

      t_0148.jpg

      Note: Reset the Paper Thickness Lever to the left when you finish printing. (See <3> in Figure 3 below.)



Preparing Envelopes to Load:
  1. Press down firmly on the edges of the envelopes to make the folds crisp. Also, press firmly on the area that corresponds to the edges of the back flap.

  2. Remove any curling by holding the edges diagonally and bending them gently.

  3. If the edges of the envelope are inflated or are curling, place the envelope on a flat surface. With a pen, press down while moving it from the center toward the edges of the envelope.

  4. Ensure that no curl or puff exceeds 1/8 in. (3 mm).
Paper Type
Precaution
Envelope*
DL / #10
Set paper with the flap closed.

Unsuitable Envelopes:
  • Envelopes with an embossed or treated surface
  • Envelopes with a double flap or pressure seals
Printer Driver Settings:
  1. Select Envelope in Media Type.
  2. Select the size for envelopes.

    * In Windows, select DL Env. or Comm. Env. #10 in Page Size.

    * In Macintosh, select DL Envelope or #10 Envelope in Paper Size.

  3. Select Landscape in Orientation.

Note:
  • Be sure to set the printer driver setting properly. If you do not, the address will be printed in the wrong direction.

  • It may be required to change the paper size option to 'Envelope' in File Page Setup menu.

Envelopes get wrinkled while printing


The problem is likely the envelopes.
OK, I'll explain what is happening first.
If you think about it this way: The envelope has air in it, not alot but some, as it moves into the fuser "the heater" the air heats up and expands. If the envelope does not have enough "leaks" for the hot air to escape it creates a bubble in the envelope that gets squashed as it moves thru the fuser giving you the wrinkles.
Does that make sense?
Most envelopes (if you have ever looked closlely at them) have small openings in the corners that let the air escape.
Sometimes the opening are to small or not there at all.
Yes the heat can also seal the envelope. Usually not if you are using laser specific envelopes.

Now that was a long winded way of saying try new envelopes made for laser printers.
Hope this helps

Printing envelopes on HL4040CN


I just bought a HL-4040CN and all my envelopes wrinkled, regardless of the size, paper thickness or software settings (thin envelope, thick envelope, etc.). Here's how I solved the problem....Open the rear panel and you'll notice a small gray lever on each side, which is probably pointing to "A" on the scale (A, B, Envelope). Move both levers to "Envelope" and close the back panel. The troubleshooting manual says the levers should be moved back to "A" after printing the envelopes, but I left them in the Envelope position and can't see any difference when printing regular or test pages or envelopes, except the envelopes are no longer wrinkled. I called Brother and asked them if there was any reason why the levers can't stay in the Envelope position, and they told me they could be left there if it wasn't negatively affecting other documents. Now, I have a great printer that prints everything without any problems. Hope this helps.

Envelope Feeder is not accepting the command


> Home > Support & Drivers > Knowledge Base

Solution --> Phaser 4400 Printer: Printing envelopes

Printing EnvelopesEnvelopes can be printed from the optional envelope feeder, the Multi-Purpose Tray, or Tray 1, 2, or 3.
Guidelines for envelope printing
  • Use only paper envelopes.
  • Do not print on the back of the envelope.
  • Never use envelopes with windows, metal clasps, or exposed gummed surfaces.
  • Keep unused envelopes in their packaging to avoid the effects of moisture and dryness, which can affect print quality and cause wrinkling.
  • Envelopes may wrinkle depending on weight and stiffness of the envelope.

Many applications include a tool for creating an envelope document. For example, Microsoft Word includes an Envelopes and Labels feature in the Tools menu. Be sure to:
  • Select faceup.
  • Clear Clockwise Rotation.
  • Select the feed method with the image centered and the stamp on the envelope to the upper left.

caution_image88x30.gif Never use envelopes with windows, metal clasps, or exposed gummed surfaces; they can damage the printer. Damage caused by using unsupported envelopes might not be covered by your printer's warranty.
note_image33x30.gif Note: The heat from the printing process can melt certain types of envelope glue. If the envelope flap sticks shut after printing the test print, tuck the flaps inside the envelopes when printing the remaining envelopes. Printing envelopes from the envelope feeder
  1. Insert the envelopes into the envelope feeder. For more information, refer to the Trays section of the Trays and Paper Guide on the Interactive Documentation CD-ROM.
    • Place the side to be printed faceup.
    • The top of the envelopes should be toward the left of the printer.

Envelope printing


You need to insert the envelope in the manual feed area and open the exit door at the back this allows the envelope to go straight through the printer hopefully limiting creasing. Check the envelope settings in windows make sure that you are using the correct size and feed selection.
