Those who have worked in an office for a while know how tricky this task used to be…in fact, we’ve updated this post to include the most accurate information so that we can better answer your questions about Canon, Ricoh, and Savin envelope printing. The good news? It’s easier than ever!

Click here for step by step instructions that detail how to print envelopes on a Canon, Ricoh, or Savin printer!

Envelopes in the “copier” industry have historically been a bit of an uncomfortable subject. Some machines could handle them fairly well, while others couldn’t reliably handle more than one at a time. Initially, digital copiers had issues with jamming or mis-feeding, and when envelopes did print successfully, they were usually wrinkled and curled.  There was also a challenge with setting up the file to print in the correct orientation.

Nowadays, the landscape is a lot less hazy. Canon and Ricoh/Savin both offer the ability to copy or print envelopes through the side bypass tray. Some of their models have also developed an envelope feeding option, allowing Tray 2 to internally process envelopes. It provides greater convenience and reliability over using the side bypass tray – not to mention the ability to hold and print a large amount of envelopes at a time.

Canon, Ricoh, and Savin Envelope Printing: A Simple 3-Step Process

To begin printing your envelope, you must first setup your file to print under the right settings with your Ricoh, Savin, or Canon printer. To do so, open a new document within Microsoft Word and choose “File – Print”. Now, click “Printer Properties” and select the “Paper” tab.

Within Printer Properties, select the appropriate settings for “Document Size”, “Input Tray”, and “Type”. Your Document Size will coincide with the size of your envelopes (for more information on typical envelope sizes, click here). Choose whether you would like your envelopes to be printed from your Bypass Tray or from Tray 2. Lastly, set your Paper Type to “Envelope”. Select “OK” to save your settings. You can now return to your document to create your envelopes. Do not select “Print” at this time.

Printing Envelopes with Microsoft Word

Activate the Envelopes and Labels Wizard by selecting the “Envelopes” option under the “Mailings” menu tab (please note that this function exists in Microsoft 2013 and 2016) and fill in your mailing and return addresses. Select the “Options” menu to adjust the Envelope size and print position. Under “Printing Options”, you can confirm how your envelopes will be fed from your specific printer.

By choosing “Options” you are able to change the look and style of your envelope. You may also designate your chosen envelope size and redirect your envelope to be printed from a different tray than has been automatically selected.

After choosing all of your settings in Microsoft Word, it is time to load your envelopes into the designated tray for printing. As this sometimes gets a little tricky, we have compiled a downloadable (and certainly printable!) guide to configuring your printer’s settings in order to get the best envelope printing available for your machine.

Taking Printing to the Edge on My Printer

5 Ways to Achieve a Full Bleed Print Using Your Office Technology

Achieve edge to edge printing on ricoh/savin printer

If I had a penny for every time a customer has said that they “want the image to go right to the edge of the paper,” I’d be a very wealthy man. Full bleed printing is the envy of many, but the reality is that when it comes to doing it in-house, the process is pretty much limited to inkjet technology. Or is it?

As color printing equipment and production print have become more popular and cost effective in the modern office, more and more marketing departments are bringing print jobs in-house. However, whatever equipment they invest in, they are still finding that true full bleed printing is something that is much easier to talk about than to actually achieve.

And what is it with Ricoh/Savin’s “Edge to Edge” print option that does not, in fact, print full bleed? We’ll get to that later…

Mobile Device Management in Baltimore

Everyone likes a good story, so let’s start with a dream scenario: Every morning your company’s sales team hits the road armed with a mobile arsenal of phones, tablets, and laptops. No longer tethered to the office, they’re free to focus on cultivating leads and delivering exceptional service to existing clients. They quickly become your company’s most effective CRM tool. Instead of logging hundreds of time-sucking miles a day between the office and appointments, they efficiently use public hotspots and Wi-Fi to upload orders, send RFPs and share sales reports. Your CFO is beaming. “More face time and remote work are sending productivity and orders through the roof!” he tells you. “The supply chain is humming. Revenues are way up. Clients are 100% satisfied. We are unstoppable.”

Sweet dream, right? Now let’s wake up to the ugly downside of unplugging. Sharing data over public networks leaves your company more vulnerable than ever to hacks, thefts, and breaches. Just one compromised email can leak proprietary information or reveal clients to competitors. One device enrolled in MS Exchange can experience a total wipe of all personal and business data.

How can you fight back? With Mobile Device Management, programs that proactively control mobile devices and maintain data security outside the server room. It’s a dream solution that enables you to capitalize on mobile’s rewards while limiting the risk.

It’s a common scenario: you spend countless hours working with an agency or graphic artist to create the perfect logo to represent your brand, only to find once it enters the four walls of your organization, its degradation begins.

Letterhead: Waste Not, Want Not

Shelly Holdaway is the Marketing Specialist for Advance and a guest blogger for the company.

Ever held up print traffic so you could run to the copier and load a sheet of letterhead, then race back to your desk and hope no one printed on it before you did? Or maybe you’ve dedicated one of your multifunctional paper trays to “just letterhead” but people still print on it by accident anyway.

What about the shelf life of your letterhead? Small changes to your location, website, or logo even, can be costly to update, especially when organizations usually pre-purchase large amounts of letterhead to offset the expense of commercial print setup.

If you do make changes, what happens to the old letterhead? Does it go straight to your fax machine and get flipped over until it’s used up printing incoming faxes or does it simply get handed out as scrap paper around the office?
