Printing on envelopes

Note the following when printing on envelopes:

  • If you are going to print a large number of sheets, first try printing one sheet to confirm that it can be printed properly. You can then print the rest of the sheets.
  • The folding quality and thickness of envelopes varies widely. If the total thickness of the stack of envelopes exceeds 10 mm, press each envelope in the stack flat before loading. If print quality declines when a stack of envelopes is loaded, load one envelope at a time.

  • Return the adjust lever to the standard  position after printing envelopes. To avoid gaps, always return the adjust lever to the  position before printing on other media.
  • When the adjust lever is in the  position, make sure that the High Speed check box in the printer driver's Advanced dialog box is cleared. To clear this check box, you may also need to change the Print Quality setting.


The minimum top margin is 3.0 mm (0.12").


The minimum left margin is 3.0 mm (0.12").


The minimum right margin is 3.0 mm (0.12").


The minimum bottom margin is 20 mm (0.78").


You can extend the minimum bottom margin to 3 mm by selecting the Minimize Margins check box under More Options on the printer driver's Page Layout menu (Windows) or the Maximum option for Printable Area in the Page Setup dialog box (Macintosh). However, print quality may decline in the expanded area.
