Envelope Printing: How to Make it Work From a Xerox Printer
Let’s address addressing envelopes in the age of computers and printers. Remember the good old days when you could just roll an envelope into the typewriter and type a name and address and BAM you were done? Well those days are gone for most of us and now the challenge is to create a professional looking envelope. You can with your Xerox Printer or Multifunction printer. On many of our printers it is not as difficult as it may seem, you just have to know how to place the envelope(s) in the tray correctly and you can create a quality output every time.
The key to printing an envelope is loading the envelope properly and setting up your software program to print to the correct tray and correct size of envelope. We have instructions for printing envelopes on the support pages for your machine. Just go to the support page for your model of printer or multifunction device, then search on “envelopes”. Below is a video for the WorkCentre 5700 series. As always the screens may vary for your machine. Also the way the envelope is loaded may not be correct for your model so please make sure you check the instructions for your model of machine.
You will find all the information you need to load the envelope properly and print to it from different programs on the online support. The support pages will have specifications for the envelopes that can be used on your machine in the paper and media specifications. There are a few of our machines that do not print on envelopes and that will be noted on the Support pages as well. If you have further questions about the process of printing on envelopes you can contact us at Support or you might look on the Customer Forums site to see if anyone else has tips or ideas for working with envelopes with your specific application.
