I open up a word document, set it to the right size and type in the address. I put in a sheet of paper and test it out first and see which direction is prints and if the spacing is right. Then I move around my text until it prints in the right spot.

How is it ‘printing wrong’?

I struggled with this so hard! I was seriously about to give up and just pay for a calligrapher. It finally worked for me when I adjusted the page size in the page layout section to the dimension of the envelope (5.25xx 7.25) or whatever and quit messing with the envelope template.

@vorpalette:  Okay so instead of using the default textbox that word uses on envelopes I add my own. I delete both boxes (return address and address) and then instert my own textbox that I can move around. Try doing what you did before but move your address box over closer to the edge so it isn’t getting cut off. I have noticed that once I get everything lined up correctly so it prints right, it always looks super weird on the screen. It’s never lined up how it should be.

@vorpalette:  Weird. I’m always able to move it around and get it to print correctly. Did you change the page size in page layout as Osgirl suggested? That would be my only other idea.
