About envelopes
2
Use envelopes that weigh from 20 to 25 lb 
(80 to 95 g/m
2
).
Some envelopes need margin settings to 
be set in the application. Make sure you 
do a test print first before printing many 
envelopes.
Important
DO NOT use the following types of 
envelopes, as they will not feed correctly:
• That are of a baggy construction.
• That have windows.
• That are embossed (have raised 
writing on them).
• That have clasps or staples.
• That are pre-printed on the inside.
Occasionally you may experience paper 
feed problems caused by the thickness, 
size and flap shape of the envelopes you 
are using.

Before loading, press the corners and 
sides of the envelopes or postcards to 
make them as flat as possible.
Important
If envelopes or postcards are “double-
feeding,” put one envelope or postcard in 
the paper tray at a time.
