Successful printing on envelopes depends upon the

quality of the envelopes. When selecting envelopes,

consider the following factors:

- Weight: The weight of the envelope paper should

not exceed 90 g/m


or jamming may occur.

- Construction: Prior to printing, envelopes should

lie flat with less than 6 mm curl, and should not

contain air.

- Condition: Envelopes should not be wrinkled,

nicked, or otherwise damaged.

- Temperature: You should use envelopes that are

compatible with the heat and pressure of the

machine during operation.

Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp and

well creased folds.

Do not use stamped envelopes.

Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows,

coated lining, self-adhesive seals, or other synthetic


Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.

Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope

extends all the way to the corner of the envelope.






Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with

more than one flap that folds over to seal must use

adhesives compatible with the machine’s fusing

temperature for 0.1 second. Check your machine’s

specification to view the fusing temperature, see

"Printer specifications" on page 89. The extra flaps

and strips might cause wrinkling, creasing, or jams,

and may even damage the fuser.

For the best print quality, position margins no closer

than 15 mm from the edges of the envelope.

Avoid printing over the area where the envelope’s

seams meet.


To avoid damaging the machine, use only labels

designed for use in laser machines.

- When selecting labels, consider the following


- Adhesives: The adhesive material should be

stable at your machine’s fusing temperature.

Check your machine’s specification to view the

fusing temperature, see "General

specifications" on page 88.

- Arrangement: Only use labels with no exposed

backing between them. Labels can peel off sheets

that have spaces between the labels, causing

serious jams.

- Curl: Prior to printing, labels must lie flat with no

more than 13 mm of curl in any direction.

- Condition: Do not use labels with wrinkles,

bubbles, or other indications of separation.

Make sure that there is no exposed adhesive

material between labels. Exposed areas can cause

labels to peel off during printing, which can cause

paper jams. Exposed adhesive can also cause

damage to machine components.

Do not run a sheet of labels through the machine

more than once. The adhesive backing is designed

for only a single pass through the machine.

Do not use labels that are separating from the

backing sheet or are wrinkled, bubbled, or otherwise


Card stock or

Do not print on media smaller than 76 mm wide or

356 mm long.

In the software application, set margins at least

6.4 mm away from the edges of the material.
