Try the suggestions in this previous question. And search this forum for "envelope" to find others.

As oweng says there are a number of open bugs pertaining to printing envelopes. There are many, many possible system configurations to account for with printing. Hope you find a satisfactory work-around.

JohnD-your answer is not very helpful. This envelope issue has been reported before--without resolution. It is not a issue of searching this site for an answer.

There are a few open bugs relating to "10"+"envelope", most of which are UNCONFIRMED. Envelope printing (particularly this size for some reason) has long been a problem probably because it requires the same printing setup and a printer with an envelope feeder. Please help us to get these bug reports confirmed. Thanks.
