Best envelope printer?

I’ve had great success running envelopes on our Canon C710. The envelope attachment for the paper deck is incredible at feeding. However, the smaller A envelopes don’t work.

we just got an Xante Enpress, and I haven’t been wowed yet. The only thing is I can load a box of 500 instead of 250 on the canon. But canon is faster….
Farmer Dave,
Please get in touch with me, I would love to see your setup. I bought an envelope feeder with my 910. Doesn't run worth a damn. I'd like to know who your service provider is and what they have done differently than mine.
Thanks
Dan

I have the NXT. Printhead is $800.00, ink cartridges are now $383.00 per cartride.
How many impressions can you get out of a printhead?

I wish I had known about this dip switch setting…as someone who has pushed 10k envelopes through our 6085 this week (yay holidays and our vendors not being able to meet our deadlines).

It works okay but I agree the big limit is the input and the output…requires a ton of babysitting. Honestly the “dedicated envelope fuser” feels a bit smoke and mirrors to me, I would rather have a spare general purpose fuser to swap, because envelopes will run fine through the regular fuser if you disable the double feed detection on your paper profile and if you aren’t running large enough quantities to generate a wear line.
Disabling the double feed detection. This is interesting. Something to for us to consider since we just run a handful envelopes once in a while. May be no need to invest on the dedicated fusing unit to just sit there and collect dust.

The envelope fuser felt like smoke and mirrors to me…yes you need a dedicated fuser to avoid the wear lines but it is an expensive unnecessary accessory for most. 10/10 times I would have preferred having a spare fuser that I could use for anything.

We don’t have the KM anymore, we have a Ricoh 7210x. I have so far put about 2000 envelopes through it. After making some paper profile tweaks to the feeding, it runs like a champ. I can increase the interval of fuser belt smoothing into my paper profile to avoid wear lines also. Caveat is you have to open the flaps…but sometimes I had to do this anyway on the KM. Some trial and error no matter what when it comes to pushing envelopes through these machines…if you do a ton of envelopes definitely a better idea to have a dedicated machine designed for that.
