FAQs & Troubleshooting

Load envelopes


  • Use envelopes that weigh from 20 to 25 lb (80 to 95 g/m2).
  • Some envelopes need margin settings to be set in the application. Make sure you do a test print first before printing many envelopes.

Do not use the following types of envelopes, as they will not feed correctly:

  • That are of a baggy construction.

  • That have windows.

  • That are embossed (have raised writing on them).

  • That have clasps or staples.

  • That are pre-printed on the inside.

Occasionally you may experience paper feed problems caused by the thickness, size, and flap shape of the envelopes you are using.



Step 1: Load envelopes:

NOTE: Illustrations shown below are from a representative product and operating system, and may differ from your Brother machine and operating system.

  1. Before loading, press the corners and sides of the envelopes to make them as flat as possible.

    If the envelopes are "double-feeding," put one envelope in the paper tray at a time.

  2. Put envelopes in the paper tray with the address side down. If the envelope flaps are on the long edge, load the envelopes with the flap on the left, as shown in the illustration. Gently press and slide the paper width guides (1) and paper length guide (2) to fit the size of the envelopes.
