scarlettbegonias87:  Hmm. I also have an HP printer and didn’t have any issues. I just put it in like regular paper, all the way back and as far right as the envelopes would go. I also adjusted the printer settings in word to “best” or “high quality.” I don’t know why you’d be having so many issues! Wish I could be of more help!

I had a lot of trouble printing on envelopes, and we have a printer that’s top-of-the-line.  What I ended up doing was getting clear address labels, printing on those, then sticking the labels on the envelopes.  They weren’t what I originally wanted, but they looked decent and were done in 15 minutes.  One piece of advice though is to give the ink a few minutes to dry on the label sheet before touching it, especially if you use an inkjet.

These were the labels I used if you want to check them out:

scarlettbegonias87:  I couldn’t do it, tried the printer at home and the printer at work.  The laser printer at work sealed the envs from the heat, the one at home jammed, I tried everything I could think of.  I ended up writing by hand – which was annoying.

Clear labels are also an option.

Instead of just putting my envelopes in, I taped each one to a regular sized piece of paper in the right spot and then put it in. The masking tape didn’t leave a mark at all and although it took a while, they looked great!
