Well, you’ll probably want to download the trial version of Adobe Illuustrator. That program will make it easy to do the swirly thing. You can try different fonts from dafont.com, some of them might be pretty similar.

In short, no you can’t do exactly that on your home printer because inkjet and laser printers cannot print white ink.  If you want white ink, you’ll have to use calligraphy, letterpress or engraving.  If you’re looking to print any other color, you can do so at home on your printer, assuming you choose the right envelope finish.  If you’re looking for a similar look, you could just print them out at home, but use a calligraphy style script.  Nelly Script Flourish is available at myfonts.com and has lots of fancy swirls and swashes surrounding the letters.

Another bee posted that if your envelopes are dark (like mine), you can print the address in the font you want in black and then go over it wiht a gold or silver fine line pen (gel, etc.). Simulated calligraphy.
