OfficeJet 3830 not compatible with all envelope sizes

It still doesn't work. I've created the a7 envelope size 5.25 x 7.25. I select it during printing, but when I click print it stop and says it can't print due to wrong size selected. Everything is selected right in my computer, but on the actual printer screen it states 5x7. Which is obviously too small. There is no 5.25x7.25 to select ON MY PRINTER screen. PLEASE HELP. The only reason I purchased this printer was to print on A7 envelopes.

OfficeJet 3830 not compatible with all envelope sizes

Hi! @BS86

 

Have you tried printing from a different application? Does the issue persist?

 

Try the steps recommended below.

 

I have checked the printer specifications and the printer does not support 5.25x7.25 envelope printing.

 

Please find the supported envelope size and types by the printer.

 

A2 envelope

111 x 146 mm (4.4 x 5.8 inches)

C5 envelope

162 x 229 mm ( 6.4 x 9.0 inches)

C6 envelope

114 x 162 mm (4.5 x 6.4 inches)

Chou #3 envelope

120 x 235 mm (4.7 x 9.3 inches)

DL envelope

110 x 220 mm (4.3 x 8.7 inches)

Monarch envelope

98 x 191 mm (3.9 x 7.5 inches)

U.S. 10 envelope

105 x 241 mm (4.1 x 9.5 inches)

6 3/4 envelope

92.2 x 165.1 mm (3.6 x 6.5 inches)

Chou #4 envelope

90 x 205 mm (3.6 x 8.06 inches)

 

Refer the product specifications page of the printer to know more information. Click Here

 

However, you can try printing using custom size settings and check if it works.

 

Try the steps recommended below to perform printing custom size. (Windows Only)

 

To set up the new custom paper size, create the new size in the printer software.

  1. Search Windows for devices, and then click Devices and Printers in the list of results.

  2. Click the icon for your printer, and then click Print server properties.

       NOTE:

    If Print server properties does not display, right-click an empty area in the Printers window, select Run as administrator from the drop-down menu, and then select Server Properties.

  3. If the User Account Control window displays, click Continue.

  4. On the Forms tab, select the Create a new form check box, and then type a name for the new paper size in Form name.

       NOTE:

    You must choose a different, unique name for the new custom paper size. Do not use an existing paper size name.

    Figure : Forms tab in Print Server Properties

    1. Create a new form

    2. Form name

  5. Select Metric or English, and then type the dimensions of your custom paper in the Width and Height text boxes.

       NOTE:

    Leave the Printer area margins set at 0.00.

    Figure : Forms tab in Print Server Properties

    1. Metric or English

    2. Width and Height

  6. Click Save Form, and then click OK or Close.

       NOTE:

    Supported paper sizes vary by printer. If you input custom dimensions that your printer does not support, the new custom paper size does not display when you attempt to print. Check the printer specifications for your printer for more information on supported paper sizes.

Is it possible to set a  custom paper size on a Mac? 

I'm having the same issue and about to take a sledgehammer to the printer from hearing the paper mismatch chime.
