    Does anyone here have a colour laser prater with an envelope tray

    I have been looking for a colour laser with an envelope tray as well as a standard A4 tray for around £250 and I can't find one anywhere. Does anyone here actually have anything like this and can point my in the right direction?

    Don't you just need two trays? Aren't they all adjustable for everything from Letter to Envelope?

    Or the manual feed tray?

    All the HP printers I've seen have an adjustable tray, so you can set it and fill it with envelopes if you want.

    But they pull paper from the manual tray in preference to the paper tray ... So it wouldnt really work for what the OP wants.

    Re: Does anyone here have a colour laser prater with an envelope tray

    I meant they have adjustable automatic trays. so you can load up Tray 2 with envelopes and A4 in Tray 1 (or 3 and 2 if the manual feed is called 1) etc.

    Re: Does anyone here have a colour laser prater with an envelope tray

    Yes you need one with two trays or depending on user intelegence, you set up the manual feed for envelopes.

    I did this for one of the office staff, The A4 goes in the draw (paper tray) and when she want to print an envelope she pulls down the envelope door (manual feed) and puts in the envelope.
    It's common for printers to use a pull down panel for manual feed, they use a light sensor to detect if the door is open and that causes it to automatically feed from the manual tray instead of the default tray.

    (Oh yes and if some "pleaset person" rips the manual feed door off snapping the lug that blocks the light sensor when it's closed, there by causeing it to always try to feed from the manual tray which is broken, then the nice HP engineer can fix it by replaceing the entire front section of the printer or by sticking a bit of chewing gum over the sensor)

    I was going to ask what a "Prater" was But I'm guessing it's a printer for prats.

    Re: Does anyone here have a colour laser prater with an envelope tray

    just noticed that!

    It will have to be a tray as she does batches and won't want to have to feed every one through.

    I'll look for a twin tray colour laser printer.

    Re: Does anyone here have a colour laser prater with an envelope tray

    dont look for a twin tray, as thats usually sold as a bolt on for a lot of them, check out the HP colour laser, the cp2025 springs to mind as having optional trays.

    not cheap and make sure you take the extended warranty as it pays for itself.

    Re: Does anyone here have a colour laser prater with an envelope tray

    Going to be tight on £250, 2 trays means a "business" printer so the price strangely jumps

    Just a quick look at Canon's current range, the cheapest colour laser that can use an additional tray is the:
    LBP5100 @ SRP £309
    http://www.canon.co.uk/For_Home/Prod...5100/index.asp
    + the additional paper tray, Paper Feeder PF-92 @ £129
    https://store.canon-europe.com/DRHM/...ctID=105661900
    Total = £438

    the cheapest basic colour laser they do is the LBP5000 @ £172
    The cheapest basic mono laser they do is the Canon i-SENSYS LBP3010 @ £95
    So It may be worth getting 2 printers, a colour and a mono

    Just used canon as an example


    EDIT:
    I can sort of recomend the HP CP2025 as we got one for work, it's been good so far but had it for less than 6 months so time will tell, we had issues with the slightly older hp 2500 series but these new ones seem better so far.
    direct from HP CP2025n @ £332
    http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/uk/en...0-3673586.html
    Additional tray (p/n CB500A) @ £110
    http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/uk/en...1-3742685.html
    Total £442
