    You use the template in Microsoft Word.

    In MS Word, go to mailings, then envelopes. From there, you should get a pop-up window with a place for mailing address & then return address is on the bottom. The window should also have a picture showing how to put the envelopes in the printer for proper placement.

    I almost have it working but it's printing so that the return address is falling off the left side of the envelope - how do I adjust the margins?

    you should be able to move the "box" that it prints in like dragging a text box

    You should be able to go to the File>Print option to get the dialog box just like with any other document, and then just change the number of items.

    Carolyn - what you really need is an office assistant to do all this stuff for you!

    Just FYI ..

    Marketing Tip #1: people open a hand written envelope BEFORE they will open a printed one.

    Marketing Tip #2: people will open a "thank you" sized envelop or "invitation" sized envelope first over a legal sized envelope.

    If you really want your customers to OPEN your mail, use those two techniques.

    I hand write all the envelopes - but was using labels for the return addys. That was getting costly so I am now printing the return addy onto the envelope. I am thinking once I run out of #10 elnvelopes, I'll switch to invite sized...I bet I can find 'em cheaper, too!
    Thanks for the tip!

    But you can't fit a mini catalog in an invitation size envelope, right?

    Actually, with our generous discount at Office Max, the box of 500 #10 envelopes is WAY cheaper! The card/invite sized ones are a specialty size so they are more expensive!
