Learn how to load envelopes into the PIXMA TR150.


Follow the steps below to load the envelopes.

Before you begin

 With a properly specified setting in the printer driver, the address is automatically rotated and printed based on the envelope's direction.

 Do not use the envelopes below. They could jam in the printer or cause the printer to malfunction.

  • Envelopes with an embossed or treated surface.

  • Envelopes with a double flap.

  • Envelopes whose gummed flaps are already moistened and adhesive.

Prepare the envelopes
