How do you print an envelope from HP Envy 4520? I did not receive a manual with the printer and the online manual does not address printing envelopes.

I would like to print an envelope from Microsoft WORD. I have clicked every single option for "printer size" and none are compatibale with the envelope that I place in the tray, which is the normal size for a folded letter: 4-1/8 x 9-1/2.

Thanks for reaching out to the HP Support Forums for a solution to your printing issue.
I understand that you wanting to print on an envelope that is 4 1/8" x 9 1/2" with an HP ENVY 4520 All-in-One Printer but you are unable to find that envelope size in the print settings. I would like to help with that.
I was looking through the supported paper envelope sizes and was not able to find a setting for 4 1/8" x 9 1/2".
The closest envelope that they have listed is the U.S. 10 envelope which is 4.1" x 9.5". Try seeing if selecting that will help.
Here is a support document that can be used for reference if needed - Printing Envelopes (Windows).
Please let me know if this resolves the issue, or if you require further assistance.

I tried every size available , including #10, but each time, it said, it was the wrong size.
I am thinking that I will have to switch to another size envelope.
If that does not work, perhaps I can take it to Best Buy Geek Squad and perhaps they will be able to show me how to get it to print rather than receiving an error that I have the wrong envelope size loaded.
Thank you for your help.

If the envelopes are being loaded properly the sensor in the printer might be picking up on the 0.025" difference in the size of the envelope.
I would try to use a #10 envelope if possible.

jenjen 3092, I posted the original question about printing envelopes on the HP Envy 4520. I am printing from Microsoft Works and it works fine on the few size envelopes that I use. I just choose the size, put it in the middle of the paper tray, slide the sides in and press print. I've also printed from Microsoft Word 2007 and never received an error. Do you have Microsoft Works that you could try?

the envy 4520 is a pos. If you want to print cards or envelopes, forget it unless you got one that has a proper paper sensor. If you try to print an envelope you have to tell the printer what size paper you just put in and then it errors about mismatch paper size! Dont bother...

After days of struggling and talking with HP on Twitter and phone calls (don't call -- they give you the same troubleshooting articles you can find online and charge $19 for it), I figured out how to print to Envelope A-7 with HP Envy 4520 (on a mac).
I was working with a mail merge and I exported the files to PDF. Opening the PDF in Apple Preview, I pushed Command+R and rotated them sideways (portrait, but the text looks sideways in the preview).
Insert the A-7 Envelope in the printer and tell the HP Envy 4520 that you are using "plain paper" otherwise it gives this obnoxious error about the paper size being wrong.
Then, printing, I used these settings:
Create your custom size by selecting this dropdown:
Add the Envelope A-7 size. This is what I used. Note: the height and width are reversed from what you would expect. This was the only way I could get it to print correctly.
Here are the final settings and preview:
Hope that helped and hopefully I didn't miss anything. HP's forum kept erasing my instructions so this is the third time I've typed this.
