1.Buy envelopes at any office supply store. They come in all shapes, sizes, textures and colors, so choose ones that go with the type of invitation you are sending out.
2.Open Microsoft Word 2007 and click on the Mailings tab.
3.Click on Envelopes in the Create section.
4.Click on the Envelopes tab when the Envelopes and Labels box comes up. The box will probably come up with the Envelopes tab open, so you may not need to do this.
5.Enter the recipient's address in the Delivery Address box. Invitation envelopes should include the names of everyone invited--for example: Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Smith and family. Don't worry about the font at this point--you can change it later.
6.Enter your return address in the Return Address box. As with the Delivery Address, you can change the font later.
7.Click on Options. Use the drop-down menu in the Envelope Options tab to change the size of the envelope if needed. The packaging of the envelopes that you purchased will have information about the size of the envelopes. It is very important that you choose the correct size so that the envelopes print correctly.
8.Adjust the font of the delivery and return addresses. Click on Font in each section and change the font style or size. You can also bold, italicize or choose other options regarding the font.
9.Adjust the placement of the delivery and return addresses on the envelopes. In each section, click the arrows in the "From left" or "From top" boxes. In the preview section below, you can see the movement of the addresses as you adjust the placement. Line up everything so that it looks good to you.
10.Click on the Printing Options tab. This is important because you must select how you feed the envelopes into your printer. Choose the correct way that they are fed, whether they are fed into the printer face up or face down, and if they should be fed in manually. This will all depend on your specific printer. Consult your owner's manual for this information if you are unsure. Click OK and you will return to the Envelopes and Labels box.
11.Insert the envelopes into your printer. Click Print once you have everything formatted and arranged how you want. You should print one envelope first to make sure the layout is correct. Once you've confirmed it printed correctly, print all your envelopes.
This has to be done through an application like Microsoft Word. For instance on Office 2007 you would select the Mailings tab then click on Envelopes to specify the address etc. In previous versions you would have had to click on the Tools menu then Letters and Mailings then Envelopes and Labels. Once you've got all the information you want printed on the envelope Place the envelope in the printer in the exact configuration shown on the printer. Should have a feed on the side, look for the envelope symbol. Print and you'll be good to go. (:
I was so pissed off that so many on the web had this same problem that I spent many hours trying to get it to work. I am sure that this is not how it is designed to work but my envelopes got printed.First I went under File, Print, Properties to Page Set-up for envelope #10. I also ********** print colour images in black and white which someone else had suggested- although it might not be necessary. I selected quick print but normal should probably work too. I then closed out these two windows. Then under tools, I selected Letters and Mailing, then envelopes and labels, typed in the addresses, went under options and changed the feed from automatic to default tray, which automatically changes the feed method to the 4th one out of 6 which wasn't what I wanted but ignore it. Check off face up. Putting the envelope into the printer was bizarre- it has to be inserted very far into the printer until only 2-3 inches of the envelope stick above the horizontal surface of the printer. It must be inserted into the middle of the paper holder, until it is just 2-3 inches sticking up, and then slide it all the way over to the right where the printer indicates the envelope should be- nice and straight against the right margin. Do not use the movable paper holders that they suggest you swing over to the right to hold your envelope- or printing won't occur for some odd reason. Press O.K. on envelopes and labels and then press print. Good luck- it worked for me.
THIS PRINTER CANNOT PRINT ENVLOPES, CHECKS, MONEY-ORDERS OR OTHER CUSTOM SIZES.
I have tried the various drivers, and it just won't print custom size documents, like envelopes, or checks. The From address, typed in the top left corner falls on the top right, the to address typed in the center falls off the page, and so it does not even show up. I just see the word to in the right margin, but the addressee's name and address are missing. I have spent days with tech support and online,without a solution. This printer is a lemon.
Go into your Word Document and print from "Tools" then "Letters and Mailings" and click on Envelopes and Labels. Sometime the perimeter isn't defined and it is on there but it's outside the scope of your envelope, especially if the return address isn't in the correct place also. You may even be able to correct it where you are by decreasing the "window" of your typing space, it's just too large.
Usually letter envelopes are insert long-way into your printer. I recommend using the Microsoft Word envelope wizard to print Sender and/or Recipient addresses on envelopes. Here's how it works:
1) Launch Microsoft Word. 2) Click Tools > Letters and Mailings > Envelopes and Labels... 3) Type in what you want to see on the envelope. 4) The default feed direction is shown in the lower right corner of the dialog box. To change it, click Options and select the Printing Options tab. Adjust the settings as you please. 5) Click OK to exit the Options Dialog Box 6) Click Print (in the upper right corner of the "Envelopes and Labels" dialog box.
I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
Sorry for the delay, but I'm new to this site and still trying to figure out how this site works.
OK, are you printing this envelope field from an application such as Word or from an application that sends explicit cursor move commands?
Are you using the correct envelope definition?
Can you do a "Print To File" from the print page menu and then send the failing print job to me so I can look at the file in binary format and see what information is actually being sent to the printer.
