Printing successfully on envelopes depends upon the quality of the envelopes.
To print an envelope, place it as shown in the following figure.
If envelopes are printed out with wrinkles, creases, or black bold lines, open the
rear cover and try printing again. Keep the rear cover opened during printing.
When selecting envelopes, consider the following factors:
Weight: should not exceed 90 g/m
Construction: should lie flat with less than 6 mm curl and should not
Condition: should not be wrinkled, nicked, nor damaged.
Temperature: should resist the heat and pressure of the machine
otherwise; jams may occur.
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 about 170°C (338 °F). 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.
