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.
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.
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
- 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.
