moderated making an envelope!


G. Gray
 

Hi Listers-


Well, I couldn't find a templet that would work for me, so here is what I did and it seems to work out great.


1.  Open MS Word

2.  Hit enter 12 times

3.  Tab 3 times

4.  Write the addressee's name

5.  hit enter and enter street address.

6. hit enter and address the city/state


It comes out great!!!!

Hi,
You donh't say what size envelope this is for and or do you give information as to what kind of printer you are using.

In Microsoft Word the Create Envelope is found by the keyboard command ALT + M, arrow down and you will find Create Envelope. It will generally pickup the addressee if you are sending a letter with the addressee address.

If you have Word setup correctly with your address for the Return Address, it will also place that in the proper place, in the upper left-hand corner of the envelope.

Opening the Options with ALT + O will allow you to select the envelope size and font.

Milton,

I'm confused, too.  Word has built in envelope templates, or ones it can download inside Word itself, for virtually any standard sized envelope in existence.

I also happened to create two for standard #10 size business envelopes that many find easier to use.  I prefer the fillable form, but others don't.

Commercial #10 Envelope MS-Word Fillable Form Template

 

Commercial #10 Envelope Template without Text Boxes

Hi Milton,
How do I set up Word so that the return address is in the right place? I've used Brian's template but it often takes a few times before everything fits correctly as I get the message that the margens are too small and that information may be cut off so I'm wondering if doing it directly within the tab within Word might prevent this problem and us wasting multiple envilopes.. Thanks
Madison

Madison,

Just FYI, the issue you describe is impossible to fix unless you're at the computer the person using the template uses and using the printer they do.  There is often a need to adjust either one of those templates such that the return address (as that's where the problem lies) fits at the upper left corner where the specific printer can print it.  This varies from printer to printer, even those by the same maker but where different models are involved.

Once the template is tweaked to work with the printer you actually use, you should be able to use it without issue each and every time.

I doubt you'll find much difference with the built-in templates, as the issue is the same with these.  Depending on how closely placed to the actual envelope corner the return address happens to be, and where the printer can actually start printing, cut-offs can occur.

The templates I developed use a Canon TS6320 as the model they print on without any cut-off occurring.

By the way, getting the warning about margins being too small, and that cut-off may occur, does not mean it will occur.  It's a trial and error thing as far as moving the return address where it works for your printer, whether you get a warning or not.

I print tons of things, including recipe cards, where I get that warning but there is no cut-off.  If one happens when I'm first working with a template, I edit it such that positioning is adjusted for the printer I'm using to print the document/envelope on.

So how do I adjust the template? Ours is an HP OfficeJet Pro 8710

Madison,

Please try these two instead:

Commercial #10 Envelope with Return Address Lower MS-Word Fillable Form Template

 

Commercial #10 Envelope Template with Return Address Lower without Text Boxes


There is no way I can describe how to deal with moving things within a document or template without vision.  Others may be able to, but I've just created two variants on the #10 envelope where the Return Address is slightly lower, and slightly further in from the left edge of the envelope.  If these don't print correctly then I really have no idea what else to do, as the return address is between 1/4 and 1/2 inch down from the top of the envelope and in from the edge.

Brian, I recall about twenty years ago when in a computer training program for the blind, there was a printer with a small, side attachment which could hold an envelope for printing.  My printer doesn’t have such an atachment.  Can one print an address on an envelope with a printer which does not have a compartment to hold the envelope?  Sorry for what is probably a dumb question!

Don,

I haven't seen a printer that can't handle an envelope in years.  Generally they're fed in from the back, top "tray" if the printer has one and you just slide the guides in to the correct width.  If it doesn't then the same thing can be done with the regular tray with the guides adjusted.

Thanks for these Brian,  I had just been adding a couple of spaces before typing my return address information on each line and It had been working fine.  My printer had also been giving me the close margin warnings.

What kind of printer do you have?  I have an HP Inkjet printer that has adjustable paper guides on the paper tray that slide in to hold envelopes.

This is what I do. In Word, tap Alt to get into the ribbon, then right arrow until I get to the "Mailings" tab, then down arrow once to get to the "Create" sub menu, then right arrow once to get to "Envelopes", then press Enter. You'll get the envelopes dialog where there is a field for the delivery address and the return address, as well as some other envelope options and a print button.

Works great for me.

Currently 2016, but I have used XP, 2007, and 2010.

I don't remember when I started using Word to print envelopes, it could have been as early as the 2007 version of Office.
