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:
|Top Margin||2 inches|
|Bottom Margin||.5 inches|
|Left Margin||4 inches|
|Right Margin||1 inch|
|Paper Size||Com 10 Envelope or Envelope #10|
|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.
