My dearest readers,

I hope this post finds you safe and sound!

I was reminiscing about the days of sending letters packed in handmade envelopes.  I remember I used to be excited to write on the wrappers. However, those days of writing on the envelope with a pen are long gone. Printers have taken over.

But has the expression of emotions declined in any way? Not at all! Rather, printers have opened up opportunities for expressing our thoughts more vividly. You can now emboss diverse patterns or make customized prints to establish your own style. No matter if you are packing personal, official, or business products, these printers are making it twice sensible.

Be it for sending your love to dear ones or ship products to your customers to connect with them, there are many printers out there that will capture your imagination. So, if you are wondering about the best printers for envelope printing, check this list out and pick accordingly!

The 10 Best Printers for Envelope Printing

1. Epson WorkForce WF-7720

Epson WorkForce WF-7720Excellent printing quality makes an imprinter rule the envelope printing domain. This Epson WF-7720 wins over this place. If you ask, how does an inkjet printer which isn’t that fast secure the top spot? Well, because we are printing envelopes here! A messed-up envelope coming out in a blink is not what I want to see. You can rely on this printer for borderless printings up to 13” X 19”.

You can use this printer with Epson cartridges only; that is how it brings you the polished prints! You may use it with cartridges of other brands, but I bet you don’t want to ruin your envelopes. Hence, I suggest you use the recommended ones only.

Come, be a bit more impressed by its printing capacity.  It has dual trays that hold 500 sheets and a 125-sheet output tray. There is a rear feed for special kinds of paper. An envelope printer must surely have duplex printing, and yes, it wins here with an auto 2-sided printing capacity.

You have the freedom to scan, copy, fax and print on this same machine. This distinguished scanner from Epson scans up to 11” x 17”. With a 35-page auto document feeder, it actually keeps your tasks rolling.

Operating this printer becomes easier with the 4.3” color touchscreen. Navigating and controlling is impressively hassle-free with this touchscreen.

It has both wireless and wired networking systems. So, I like it for being able to print from my smartphone and tablet. It also has Ethernet and NGC support systems.

What we liked:

  • Amazing text and graphics printing
  • Dual trays and rear feed
  • Auto duplex printing
  • Borderless printing
  • Printing, faxing, copying, and scanning friendly

What we didn’t like:

  • Works well with only Epson cartridges

2. Canon Office and Business MX922

Canon Office and Business MX922

Loading one page at a time for scanning, printing, and copying is troublesome. What about a multi-tasking machine? Here is a printer with duplex Auto Document Feeder to load multiple pages to scan, copy or print at a time! Excitingly, this fantastic printer takes all the responsibilities! It sorts out the paper shape or size for printing by itself!  And this fully integrated ADF can hold 35-sheets.

The auto duplex printing saves pages and energy. On top of it, your envelopes can be gorgeous with prints on both sides! It has various connectivity options for data transferring. It works wonderfully with Wireless LAN, wireless printing, Google cloud printing, AirPrint, Mobile Device Printing, and USB. You may get a super-fast data transfer by plugging the cable into your PC.

This sturdy machine is compatible with Combo and Individual CLI-251 XL Ink Tanks with cyan, magenta, black, and yellow. It also goes with PGI-255 XXL pigment black ink and PGI-250 XL tanks.

You can take it as Canon’s the best inkjet envelope printer. It helps you out in your business significantly.  With the six-color ink system, it prints high-quality materials vividly. You can use filters for images in this printing machine. This inkjet machine prints on plain paper.

Vibrant printing is one of its confident qualities. It cheerfully prints 15 materials per minute. The five-inch LCD monitor helps in hassle-free navigation. It has a longevity issue, but my suggestion is not to be so hard on this printer. You can rely on it, and it is definitely worth buying for its superb quality printing, flexibility, and indeed for its affordability.

What we liked:

  • High-quality printing
  • Various filters can be used while printing
  • Duplex Auto document feeder
  • Auto duplex printing

3. Brother Monochrome Laser Printer MFCL2710DW

Brother Monochrome Laser Printer MFCL2710DW

No one likes to wait while the printer works, and some may not stand for it at all. However, this printer is designed with high-end technology to work with great speed.  If you are looking for speedy output, check this one out. You’ll get classy prints of 32 pages per minute. There is a 50-sheet auto document feeder. Quite the efficient machine! It is a black and white printer.

It has a 250-sheet paper capacity to cope with the workload. Not needing to refill 100 times is a relief.  Imprinting legal-sized paper and letters are easier with this machine.

Handling various papers is also manageable with its manual feeding slot. You may go for different shapes and sizes of paper and rely on it for professional printing quality. It can also do multi-page copying, scanning, and faxing.

Saving time and energy is the name of the game with its automatic document feeder capable of up to 50 sheets. There is also multi-page scanning, faxing, copying, and printing functions.

This monochrome laser printer is a love for its fast output and quality printing. My honest vote goes for its polished printing as a monochrome laser printer only if you can tolerate the part of replacing the cartridge as it runs low. Yes, it stops printing unless you change the cartridge when it signals.

This printer prevents waste of paper by having an auto-duplex printing system. Besides, there is a toner save mode to reduce costs. The convenience of connectivity is another plus point. You can connect this printer with Wi-Fi, Ethernet, or USB. Operating it from smartphones and tablets is as easy as from laptops or desktops.

What we liked:

  • High-end technology for faster printing
  • Professional printing quality

Brother Compact Monochrome Laser Printer, HL-L2350DW

Here is another laser printer from Brother, a monochrome printer like the previous one. What makes it different from the previous one? It has some similar features, but it also has other tremendous advantages that make it unique. This printer works with Alexa, and by combining it with another device, you can add voice control.

This printer becomes a topper as it can handle loads of envelopes at a rather low cost. Brother is known for cost-effective printing machines, and this one is like a cherry on top of the cake. This printer allows you to print 3000 pages with a single toner! It reproduces 32 envelopes per minute and can easily handle 250 envelopes each time. Impressed, yet? It is fantastic to see how polished materials come out of this robust machine.

Along with envelopes, this machine prints on cards. You can go for various shape and size papers, from letter to legal, with a manual feed slot. Being a wireless printer, it has multiple options with solid connectivity.  You can print from your smartphone, laptop, desktop, tablet, etc., with the built-in Wi-Fi and USB interface.

For a flexible and quick printer like this, you can spend a lot, but you don’t need to be. I wish it had a color printing option as well. The auto duplex system saves papers and allows decorative envelope printing. You can also print on only one side if you want to. All you need to do is set the default setting to a single-sided document.

What we liked:

  • It has a compact design
  • Works with Alexa
  • Low running cost
  • Auto duplex and single side printing

What we didn’t like:
