Because of the design, I think you need to feed it manually. (unfortunately, one by one)

How to print envelope


You have to place envelopes in bypass feeder. It is situated at the left side of machine.

Do not try to feed them from other trays, since there is a retard roller causing envelopes to jam.

Perhaps you also have to tell the machine what size the enevlopes are. This happens usually when you put material in the feeder.

Bear in mind that the envelope "flap" must go in the machine first and

the printable side down.

Good luck.

-How about try this:
-Make sure adjust the fence of the tray to just fit the envelop.
-Make sure the envelop fit in and push all the way in. In order for the machine to be able to feed it self.

Try it.

Good luck

Load and print envelopes


Generally NO. The reason is they have a manual slot and rear exit that keeps the path nearly straight for things like envelopes, labels, cardstock etc so they dont have to make the turn from the tray and from the fuser to the fact down exit tray. If you need to do a mailmerge with numerous envelopes you could 1) print a sheet of labels and stick those to blank envelopes or 2) go to a more advanced machine that has envelope feeder capability. Even a used machine such as a Laserjet 4000 - you can find envelope feeders that just attach on easily for almost nothing on ebay.

Where to place envelope.


This should be in your manual complete with pictures.

You can print a single envelope using the photo/envelope feeder. Insert the envelope into the photo/envelope feeder with the side to be printed facing down and the flap to the left.

You can print multiple envelopes (max 20) from the bottom tray. Temporarily remove the top (output) tray. Slide the paper guide in the bottom tray to the left. Load your envelopes to the far right with the side to be printed down, flaps to the left (I like to tuck the flaps into each envelope so they are less easily jammed, but this is optional). Slide the paper guide to the right snugly against the envelopes. Replace the output tray. Start printing.

How do you print on an envelope? Where is the feeder for envelopes?


envelopes are generally fed through a "bypass tray" which flips down. Some models you have to open a cover in the back to "straight feed" through. Generally you have to tell the machine and the pc that you are printing to an envelope (usually type ten) on the machine you must find tray or drawer settings and on the PC you use properties on the drop down menu and choose media type

Brother MFC-9840CDW wrinkles envelopes. Brother says this is "normal", and that the only way to 'fix' it is to open the back of the printer EVERY TIME YOU PRINT AN ENVELOPE and make some kind of...


Problem Solved!

I have a Brother MFC-8480 DN all in one printer, copier, fax and scanner.

I discovered that envelopes wrinkle because users, like me, didn't know that Brothers built in a no-wrinkle, pass through exit for envelopes, labels and thick paper.

Envelopes were never to be printed by inserting them in the front and letting them wrap around a HOT roller and get cooked and wrinkled. The way it works:

An envelope is inserted in the front and goes straight out the back of the printer through an exit door, completely avoiding the hot roll-through mechanism.

Take a look. On the back of the machine is a large pass through exit door. Just snap it open. You will see one blue lever on each side of the opening. Snap them both straight down to the . . .ta da. . ."envelope icons".

Put three envelopes in the front and they will print straight out the back, perfect and wrinkle free. After printing your envelopes, snap the blue levers back up and shut the door. Takes about five seconds to open the door and snap down the blue levers down/up.

Happy envelope printing.

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.
