The PB3120 and PM3130 trays list envelopes as a possible media type. Approximately how many can be loaded and will the tray adjust to any size that we want? (For example, #9, A6, etc)
Brandon W on Mar 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Brandon,

Thanks for your question! The number of envelopes loaded will vary depending on their size. However, each paper tray will hold 550 sheets of regular paper (the size of approximately 1 paper ream). You can adjust the tray to fit the following sizes:

Paper Sizes 7.25" x 10.5" – 11" x 17", A3, A4, A5
Envelopes: Com10, C5

*Envelopes with peel off tape should be avoided as it overheats the printer and are more likely to jam.

Please contact your Ricoh representative or local Ricoh dealer (http://dealer.Ricoh-USA.com) to find out more.
