I've never dared.  They're hard enough to get to go neatly through a
simple typewriter, while manually cranking, never mind the twists and
turns that lasers have in their paper path.  Not to mention the expense
involved if you stuff it up.

I have tried putting envelopes though the inkjet, when I still had it.
They'd often jam, as the thickness of the envelope is not uniform, and
they'd start to move off kilter, going diagonally through the mechanism.
If I had a need for mass posting, I'd buy those envelopes with the clear
window, and print the first page to suit.

I've tried labels, the sheets are just too thick.  They'd jam because of
that, or literally get stuck.  Even with manual feed, which only has one
u-bend in the paper travel.  And even simple paper/card is a problem,
despite still being within the specs of the printer.  Mind you, I'm not
using the latest printers, it's a HP LaserJet 4L.
