Envelope Printing on an HP 656C

When I try to print an envelope, preferably in Filemaker Pro, the return address cannot print the first 4 characters. Microsoft Word has the identical problem.

Suggestions?

Maybe you are too close to the edge of the printable area

Thanks for your response.

I've moved it in and it made no difference unless I moved it in far enough to look like an address and not a return address. That is not professional looking.

Agreed

Any chance you could alter the margins on that template?

I print envelopes from FMP without your problem.

I've tried that. I think the problem is FMP doesn't talk very clearly to my HP 656C. The HP has the same problem with Word but not with a $500,00 app, "Letters and Envelopes".

Five hundred dollar app!!

Surely a typographical error there. Happy

$50.00 is the cost of the app.

Much better, but,

In reply to: Typo

still a little expensive for what is really a little utility.

Avery Pro does a similar thing, envelopes and labels, and is free.

I don't suppose you have another printer to test your theory about the printer being the problem?

I have two more printers attached to my Dell PC. I might try to see if the Epson would check on the HP as a viaraible. Good idea!

I downloaded the Avery product you suggested and - please forgive my density - I see nothing that pertains to envelopes.

Suggestions?

Ooops,

In reply to: HP 656 Envelope Printing

been a while since I used it and I obviously confused the Return labels with the Return address on the envelope.

Sorry about that, at least it was free.
