Q:
How do I print on envelopes?
A:
It's usually much easier to use self-adhesive ink jet label sheets than going through the word processor's envelope setup. Ink jet label sheets come in both white and clear labels so they can be used on colored envelopes. You can easily select the type of label sheets you are using in your software application.

If you use envelopes, you must make sure the envelopes size and thickness are within the specifications listed in your user's manual.

Make sure to set the paper thickness lever to the + position for envelopes and set it back for regular paper when finished printing envelopes.

Please refer to the following instructions for Wordperfect and Word 97:
