How should I load envelopes?

  • Do the following:

    Loading Paper for Documents

    You can print documents on a variety of paper types and sizes.
    1. Flip the feeder guard forward.
    2. Raise the paper support and its extension, pull out the output tray, then raise the paper stopper.
    3. Slide the edge guide to the left.
    4. Insert paper, glossy or printable side up and short edge first, against the right side. If you are inserting a stack of paper, fan the sheets first and tap the stack on a flat surface to even the edges.

    5. Slide the edge guide against the paper, but not too tightly.
    6. Flip the feeder guard back.
    Always follow these paper loading guidelines:
    • Load only the recommended number of sheets.
    • Load paper short edge first, no matter which way your document faces.
    • Load letterhead or pre-printed paper top edge first.
    • Do not load paper above the arrow mark inside the edge guide.
    • Check the paper package for any additional loading instructions.
    • If you use paper with binder holes, load only one sheet at a time and use only these sizes: Letter (8.5 × 11 inches [216 × 279 mm]), A4 (8.3 × 11.7 inches [210 × 297 mm]), or Legal (8.5 × 14 inches [216 × 356 mm]).
