How should I load envelopes?

  • You can load paper up to this size in the paper cassette: Legal (8.5 × 14 inches [216 × 356 mm])

    Note: If the optional paper cassette unit is installed, do not remove more than one cassette at a time.

    1. Make sure the product is not operating and pull out the paper cassette.

    2. Slide the front edge guide outward all the way, then slide the side edge guides to the paper size you are using.

    3. Load paper with the printable side facedown and slide the front edge guide against the paper.

      Note: Make sure the paper fits beneath the arrow mark inside the edge guides.

    4. Insert the paper cassette all the way into the product.

    5. Do one of the following:
      • Select the size and type of paper you loaded on the LCD screen.
      • Press the  Paper Setting button, select the paper source, and select the size and type of paper you loaded.
      • Select Settings > General Settings > Printer Settings > Paper Source Settings > Paper Setting to select the size and type of 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.
    • Load the printable side facedown.
    • Load letterhead or pre-printed paper top edge first.
    • Do not load paper above the arrow mark inside the edge guides.
    • Check the paper package for any additional loading instructions.
