Using the Printer
Envelopes
You can feed envelopes individually using the paper guide. Keep 
the following tips in mind:
❏ Before loading an envelope, set the paper thickness lever to 
the proper position. See “Adjusting the paper-thickness 
lever” on page 2-28.
❏ To load an envelope, follow the steps in “Running the Self 
Test” on page 1-12. Insert the wide edge of the envelope into 
the printer first, printable-side down. When you insert the 
envelope between the paper guides, push it firmly and hold 
it until it feeds into the printer.
❏ Use envelopes only under normal temperature and humidity 
conditions.
❏ Make sure the printing stays entirely within the printable 
area.
❏ The print head must not go past the left or right edge of the 
envelope or other thick paper. (See “Printer Specifications” on 
page A-4 for specifications.) It’s a good idea to print a test 
sample using a normal single sheet of paper before you print 
on envelopes.
