Loading Envelopes or Postcards

Loading Envelopes or Postcards

Before loading envelopes or postcards, make some preparations such as flattening any curls on them. Also pay attention to the orientation of envelopes or postcards and which side is face up. Note that neither envelopes nor postcards can be loaded in the paper drawer.
This section describes how to load envelopes in the orientation you want, as well as procedures that you need to complete before loading envelopes or postcards. For the general procedure for loading envelopes or postcards in the multi-purpose, see Loading Paper in the Multi-Purpose Tray.
 

Loading Envelopes

Before Loading Envelopes

Follow the procedure below to prepare the envelopes before loading.
1
Close the flap of each envelope.
2
Flatten them to release any remaining air, and make sure that the edges are pressed tightly.
3
Loosen any stiff corners of the envelopes and flatten any curls.
4
Align the edges of the envelope on a flat surface.
 

Loading Envelopes in the Multi-Purpose Tray

Load the envelopes in portrait orientation (with the short edge toward the machine), with the non-glued side (front side) face down. You cannot print on the reverse side of envelopes.

Load the envelope so that the edge with the flap is toward the left side as shown in the illustration.

Loading Postcards

For postcards, automatic 2-sided printing is impossible. If you want to print on both sides of the postcard, first print on one side and then print on the other side.
Before loading the postcards, flatten any curls on them. With curls remaining, printouts may be skewed or images may be printed distorted.

Loading Postcards in the Multi-Purpose Tray

Insert the postcard with the print side face up and with the short edge toward the machine if the type of postcard is regular or 4-on-1 or the long edge toward the machine if the type of postcard is reply.
