Recommended Posts

hi ladies - so it's friday night and we are trying to print our STD envelopes when we should be out enjoying this weather and starting our vacation week - NERDS - HA!!!

 

anyway, the envelopes are a teal color transparent vellum No.10 and my printer is not doing a good job at making it happen.

Sometimes it has to do with the direction you are feeding the envelope.

Try feeding it with the flap going a different direction. Of course you will need to change the direction under printing prefrences as well. Hope that is not too confusing :)

What kind of printer do you have? And which issues exactly are you having with the envelopes? If we know these things, we might be able to help you better. :)

i have a Brother MFC 440CN. it is new and has been working well.

 

the problem is that the envelopes arent' even getting to the point where the ink is printing on them b/c they are jamming.

 

i am thinking about calling staples or a printing place but i am afraid that willl be $$$$$$$$!

So are you feeding the envelopes like this: __ or like this | ? And does your printer roll the paper or does it feed straight in? If your printer rolls the paper I'd try putting the envelopes flap up laying this way: |.

 

You'll have to adjust the settings in whatever word processing program you are using as well probably on the document and on the print settings.

 

If this doesn't help let me know.

i have to feed them like | because they are too wide for the printer the other way. it rolls so i will attempt it with the flap up and let you know!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
