SPENT THREE HOURS DOING THE INSANE OVER AND OVER AGAIN. THEN I DECIDED TO TELL THE STAMPS.COM CONFIGURE THAT IT PRINTED A TRIANGE WHEN IF FACT THE PRINTER ERROR MESSAGE"Paper mismatch.” SHOWED UP ON THE HP MESAGE MONITOR.
I THEN CONTINUED THRU THE PROMPTS ON STAMPS.COM SOFTWARE AND CONFIRED THAT "ALL FOUR" ITEMS PRINTED ON THE ENVELOPE WHILE IN FACT IT DID NOT. THIS GET YOU THRU THE "CONFIGURE PRINTER" SETUP. THEN I SELECTED "PRINT PREVIEW" AND PRINT TEST ENVELOPE AND IT WORKED!! HOPE THIS HELPS. I HAVE NOW PRINTED 30 ENVELOPES,ALL OK.

My HP C7180 says mismatch when trying to print DL envelopes. It has worked in the past.


CHECK THE PRINT SETTINGS FOR THE DOCUMENT YOU ARE SENDING TO THE PRINTER YOU MAYBE TRYING TO SEND IT AS A LETTER SIZE INSTEAD OF DL SIZE. YOU CAN FIND THIS IN THE PRINTER PROPERTIES WHEN PRINTING THE DOCUMENT CHECK PAPER SIZE.

This happened because you are sending a paper setting to the machine that do not exist.
Go to the PROPERTIES of the printer driver and change the paper settings.
Hope this helps you.
If this does not help reply to me.
(For give you more detailed help i need to know what driver you are using - RPCS or PCL)
See you.

Paper size mismatch for A9 envelope (5.75x8.75)


Set the envelope size in the printer properties paper size list to A5 (5.83 x 8.27) which is only .08 inches wider than the short side of an A9 envelope (5.75 inches). The paper size sensor on the HP6520 printer must not be sensitive enough to tell the difference. I can print A9 envelopes just fine using the A5 setting.

How can I print envelopes on my HP C5180. I've had it over 2 years and have never been able to get it to print any size envelopes. I always get a 'paper mismatch' message. HP tech support has never...


I tried all of the suggestions on here and nothing worked. My envelopes are 5x7.3. So, I finally just put in 5x7 and lo and behold, even though there truly was a paper mismatch this time since that was NOT the size of the envelopes, they printed. I did have to move the text boxes some to make them print correctly. So, I guess the solution for my printer is to actually mismatch the size of the paper/envelope so that you will NOT get the "paper mismatch" error message. Will it work on other size envelopes? I have no clue. This is the first time I've ever been able to print an envelope at all with this printer that I've had 2 or 3 years.

How do you print an envelope


Stamps .com sends you blank sheets of stamps, you insert those sheets per the instructions and print stamps to apply to the envelope.

Paper Mismatch


I had this problem on the 6300 and was able to fix it by doing the following:

After selecting print, select preferences.
Select the Features tab.
Under Resizing Options, select "Custom" from the drop down menu.
Put in the custom dimensions of the paper on which you are printing.
Save it under a new name (e.g., "Invitation")

When it is time to print,
Select "More" from the drop down tab under Resizing Options.
At the bottom of the list of those options, you will see your custom sized saved.
Select it, and happy printing.

PIXMA 830 Smudges when printing envelopes


On my MP780, be careful to select the appropriate paper type; I was getting black smudges on the left side of my envelopes until I explicitly set that my paper type was "envelope" from "plain paper".  
Another idea is to adjust the "ink drying wait time" to a higher level.
