How should I load envelopes?

  • Do the following:

    Loading Paper in the Paper Feed Slot

    You can print photos on a variety of paper types and sizes up to: 5 × 7 inches (127 × 178 mm)
    1. Slide the edge guide to the right.
    2. Load paper, glossy or printable side up and short edge first, against the left side of the paper feed slot.

      Note: To load envelopes, insert the envelopes printable side up and flap edge left.

    3. Slide the edge guide against the paper, but not too tightly.
    4. If prompted by the product's LCD screen, select the size and type of the paper you loaded.
    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.
    • Do not load paper above the arrow mark inside the edge guide.
    • If you have trouble loading a stack of envelopes, press each envelope flat before loading it or load one envelope at a time.
    • Do not load envelopes that are curled, folded, or too thin, or that have plastic windows.
    • Check the paper package for any additional loading instructions.
