To load envelopes that are under 8.66 inches (220 mm) in width in the multipurpose feeder, insert the
envelopes either with the flaps closed and at the right side or the flaps open and at the rear. To load
envelopes that are over 8.66 inches (220 mm) in width in the multipurpose feeder, insert the envelopes with
the flaps closed and the short-edge of the envelopes facing into the printer. The print side must be facing
down. You can load envelopes up to the maximum fill line in the tray at one time.
Make sure set the envelope flaps are completely unfolded.
Never use envelopes with windows, coated linings, or self-stick adhesives. These lead to
paper jams and damage to the printer.
If you insert the long-edge of the envelopes facing into the printer (using DL or Monarch),
specify Portrait & Landscape (For envelopes) in Turn Image by 180deg in the
Booklet/Poster/Mixed Document dialog box of your printer driver.
