Can you run it through with the flap open? You may have to flip the printing to do so depending on which way the envelope goes through the printer…

I printed my envelopes and had no problems.

Could you print the envelope with some kind of thick paper inside? Maybe 2 or 3 layers of some kind of paper or cardstock? That may help!

@mindybelcher:  to be honest, if simple printing puts impressions in the surface, then once it goes through the mail it’s probably going to look pretty bad. unless you are planning on hand-delivering these, you might want to look at other envelopes.

Are you using an inkjet or laser printer?  I know on my laser there are settings for paper type.  Try using envelope, or better yet if it has it, thick envelope. The printer may be squeezing your paper to hard.
