If you need to print multiple envelopes, all the same, you may find it handy to create a Word template that defines how your envelopes should look. Creating templates is covered in other issues of WordTips, but you can start out with the following page settings for the template:

Setting Value
Top Margin 2 inches
Bottom Margin .5 inches
Left Margin 4 inches
Right Margin 1 inch
Paper Size Com 10 Envelope or Envelope #10
Orientation Landscape
Paper Source Envelope feeder

You may need to play with the above settings to best meet your envelope printing requirements. Add any standard text to the envelope (such as a return address), and then save it as a template using the name Envelope.Dot. You can then use the template anytime you need to print your standard envelopes.

Another method is to Add the envelope to your document and then highlight the TO Address in the envelope. Go to File|Print. Under Page range select the radio button for "Current page" and then the quantity you would like to print. Then hit Print.
