Hi all

I'm not sure this is the right forum for this issue...

Well, I'm wondering if I'm the only person on earth not able to print addresses on envelops!

I have a PSC all-in-one 1215 HP and XP Professional. I followed all the steps given by the office assistant to print on envelops (dimensions of envelop; preview), but as I insert the envelop on the printer tray (as shown!) and click on Print ... just one the address (the addressee's) appear on the envelop, but not at the right place.

Did I miss something? Anyone willing to help me?

Thanks, bye

Which software do you use to print? May 11, 2006

Os the printer driver installed correctly?
Didn't you mix up the envelope dimensions (inch and centimeters for example)?
Are you sure the adress is correctly positioned in your software?

But altogether making a remote diagnosis on hardware and software one has never seen is a bit difficult.
Maybe someone has exactly the same printer as you (quite likely) and similar configuration (not so likely anymore - due to a huge variety of hardware and software combinations)

Regards
Jerzy

How I do it May 11, 2006

I have address list in a Word file. I highlight the necessary address, then go to Tools- Letters and Mailings- Envelopes and labels (actually I have placed a shortcut to that on my Word tool bar) and click print. In this dialog box you can also set envelope size and orientation.

I have HP laserjet 1012, to start printing envelope I have to press the green button on the printer.

And that's all. (Never have used Office assistant for any purpose ).

HTH,

Uldis

Thank you Uldis May 11, 2006

It is very kind of you to tell here about this. I learned something new today (as I always do in proz).

Yes, it is installed correctly. Other printouts are OK.

no

I clicked on Preview to see if it is correclty positioned and it is.

But altogether making a remote diagnosis on hardware and software one has never seen is a bit difficult.

or use a different envelope May 12, 2006

I know that this will not fix all mailing problems, but have you considered those envelopes with a window in them so that the address on the letter is visible?
