  1. Prepare envelopes.

    • Press down on all four corners and edges of the envelopes to flatten them.

    • If the envelopes are curled, hold the opposite corners and gently twist them in the opposite direction.

    • If the corner of the envelope flap is folded, flatten it.
    • Use a pen to press the leading edge in the inserting direction flat and sharpen the crease.


      The figures above show a side view of the leading edge of the envelope.


    • The envelopes may jam in the printer if they are not flat or the edges are not aligned. Make sure that no curl or puff exceeds 0.1 inch (3 mm).
