HP Officejet 6500 - a smudge on the very edge of each envelope I try to print

Every envelope I print (they are for wedding invitations) has a small ( about 1 inch) smudge right along the edge of the envelope.  I have tried everything I know to try.  I have wiped down all open areas incase there was a dob of ink some where.  I have cleaned the print heads.  What can I do?

Hi Knipple,


I would like to help you eliminate the smudge you are seeing on your envelopes. Please use the solutions in the following document; Fixing Ink Streaks, Faded Prints, and Other Common Print Quality Problems.


If the issue persists you might try the following; Black ink stains envelopes when printing, it is a little unconventional but hey, if it works it works! Smiley Happy


I hope this helps.
