    Ok I know there must be a way, but darn if I can figure it out! I'm trying to print the mailing address on the small RSVP envelopes and the envelope is so small that it just stops in the middle of the printer. Is there a way to feed these envelopes through without them stopping? Thanks!

    I had this problem too with my inkjet. I ended up having to take them to work and using a laser printer. I have NO idea why it caused the problem, but I think because it used so many rollers and the little envelope was so tiny that it just got stuck along the way.
    Good luck!

        I would print what you want on a regular sheet of paper and then line up your envelope to where it printed and tape it down with removable tape and then run it through again.

          I've just done mine no bother - 11cm x 8cm envelopes - have you set the paper size up to the size of your envelopes?

            Hmmm, I will try the laser printer at work and if that doesn't work, I'll go with the tape method...thanks!

              After hours of trying I gave up and used clear labels. Seriously...I almost cried over this decision, had to go to a friend who could bring me back to reality :) I think they looked fine in the end.

                It's ok, I really don't think clear labels are THAT bad. I'm going to give mine a go on the printer this weekend, but the save the dates envelopes were very tedious to print. I'm not going to hesitate on using the labels as a back up!
