A business envelope looks professional when the address is computer printed.

Using the "Envelopes and Labels" feature in Microsoft Word makes printing custom business envelopes quick and easy. The entire process is really as simple as opening the feature, typing the address information and clicking "Print."

Step 1

In Microsoft Word, click on "Tools," then "Letters and Mailings," then "Envelopes and Labels."

Step 2

Click on the "Envelopes" tab.

Step 3

In the "Delivery Address" text box, fill in the appropriate information.

Step 4

In the "Return Address" text box, fill in the appropriate information.

Step 5

Place a blank envelope in your printer tray. The printer will print the address information according to the icon displayed under "Feed." To change the way the printer prints the address information, click on "Options," then on "Printing Options." Choose the feed method, then click "OK."

Step 6

Click "Print" to print the envelope.

Tips

  • To change the font properties in this feature, click on "Options," then on "Envelope Options." Click on the "Font" button under either "Delivery Address" or "Return Address." Make the changes. Then click "OK" twice. Click "Print" to print the envelope.

Warnings

  • Avoid wasting envelopes by testing the printing orientation with a blank piece of paper to ensure you position your envelope in the printer correctly.
