How do you print an envelope?

Hello,

 

I have been searching all over the internet and HP's website in order to learn how to print an envelope. Can someone please point me in the right direction so that I can give it a shot? Here are the particulars:

 

Printer: HP OfficeJet Pro 8500A Plus

Computer: iMac, running Lion (OS 10.7.2)

 

I have Microsoft Office 2011 (for the Mac) as well as "Pages" (Apple's version of Word). I would like to learn how to type up an envelope on my computer screen, and then put an envelope in the printer and have it print out. I have tried so many things but I keep coming up empty, and I would really appreciate some guidance. 

 

Thanks much!

There is an envelope icon molded into the input tray.  Usually it goes in skinny side in, flap up, with the flap on the left side as you face the printer.

Re: How do you print an envelope?

In both Word and Pages there are templates set up for envelopes.  From the File menu > New from Template.

 

Choose your envelope size and layout and open it.  Enter your own information and the print it.

Wow, it's this easy? Nice! Can you please tell me how the envelope goes into the tray? Does it go face down or face up, and do you put it in "wide" or "skinny"? Thanks!!

My envelope is 6x8 and the template doesn't give me that option. 

 

I think I figured out the size issue but now my printer gets jammed with the envelope. I tried a regular letter size envelope and it worked. Why does my hp get jammed with the 6x8?
