HP Printer that will print DL envelopes....


...I have an HP C3180 Printer that provides excellent service in every way but one...If I try to print a DL size envelope, it jams every time.
I've followed the advice on the HP official website and I've tried envelopes of differing quality but all to no avail.
Has anyone had experience of a Budget HP printer available in the UK that will cope with a DL envelope?
Thank you.

Very many thanks, Nylex...that's most helpful and it's a sensible price on Amazon too.

No problem. You'll want to check the version of HPLIP that you have installed, though - HP's website says the minimum is 3.9.8.

Thanks, Nylex...I've got 3.10.2 so I should be OK.
