Saving an Envelope for Future Use

Please Note: This article is written for users of the following Microsoft Word versions: 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. If you are using a later version (Word 2007 or later), this tip may not work for you. For a version of this tip written specifically for later versions of Word, click here: Saving an Envelope for Future Use.

There are times when you may need to print several envelopes that have the same delivery address, or you may need to keep an envelope on file for future use. The developers at Word provided the capability to add an envelope to your current document, but not to create a new document that contains just an envelope (as they did with labels).

If you find yourself in this situation, follow these steps:

  1. Open the existing document that contains the address you want to use on your envelope.
  2. Highlight the address and copy it to the Clipboard by pressing Ctrl+C.
  3. Create a new document.
  4. Choose Envelopes and Labels from the Tools menu. Word displays the Envelopes and Labels dialog box.
  5. Make sure the Envelopes tab is selected. (See Figure 1.)
  6. Figure 1. The Envelopes tab of the Envelopes and Labels dialog box.

  7. Place the insertion point in the Delivery Address area.
  8. Press Ctrl+V to paste the address you copied in step 2.
  9. Using the tools in the dialog box, format the envelope as you desire.
  10. Click on the Add to Document button. This creates your envelope.

You now have your envelope and can save it in a file, if you so desire. When it is time to print your envelope, you can do so as you would with any other document, including printing multiple copies. The only caveat is that you should only print page 1 of the document (which is the envelope itself). If you print the entire document, you will get a blank page after the envelope.
