How to Print Envelopes on an HP LaserJet P2015

Addressing envelopes by hand can be a time-consuming task. However, using the HP LaserJet P2015 printer can make the job much easier. There is a definite procedure to make the printing go smoothly, and there are a few tips and guidelines to avoid paper jams and prevent any damage to your printer.

Instructions

      Open the straight-through output door on the back of the printer.

      Open printer Tray 1 and load the envelopes. Place the envelope with the side to be printed facing up and the top edge along the left guide. If the envelope has a flap on the short edge, load the envelope so that edge enters the printer first.

      Select "Print" in your word processing application.

      Click "OK" to print the envelopes.
