I just figured this out a couple days ago…I just changed the document size to the size of the envelope and changed the printing paper size also and typed the address on the area of the paper where I wanted it to print on the envelope.  I did the same thing for the return address on the back flap of the envelope.  Hope that helps…if you need more specific instructions I can look at the exact way I did it and let you know!

There might be a setting you need to change in your print preferences.. Check out your printer’s manual if you have it, if you don’t, Google! Most electronic manuals can be found on the manufacturer’s website.

To change the printing settings for Office 2007, in Word click on the File button (colorful circle in the upper left hand corner) and click print.  Then, click the properties button in the upper left hand corner.  Click on the Features tab and look for resizing in the middle of window.  It should say letter so click on it and go to custom.  Another window will pop up and you have to name it and change the sizes to the actual document size you created.  Then click save and okay.  Before it actually takes affect, you have to get all the way out of the print box and then go back in (you pretty much just made the custom setting and saved it).  So, to make it actually change the size you have to click print like you did originally and then properties and then features.  Now, where it says letter, go to more and scroll to the bottom until you find the custom setting you just made and click on it.  Then click okay and then done.  That should save the preference for the document and then you can hit print like you normally would.

I just used the envelope setting in Office and just eyeball the measurement and do a test print first to see if it printed where you want it to print.

We did it with word. It just took a lot of trial and error. Use regular paper instead of envelopes to minimize waste, or just keep printing on the same envelope in different colors so you can differentiate when you get it right. Good luck!

Does anyone know how to do this in Open Office?

I had this problem when printing my 4-bar RSVP envelopes.  I just let it go and let them print off center.  Some printed off-center, some printed perfectly.  I thought it had to do with my printer’s feed settings which I didn’t think I could change.

I am just about to start printing…4 bar and A7.  We practiced with the 4 bar last night and when we finally got the paper to actually feed, it wouldn’t print any text.  Weird.  Anyone have a similar problem?  I am going to try on a different printer today, but printers sure don’t seem to like little paper!
