What is the Purpose of Envelope Printing?



Do you want to add your return address on the envelope but don’t know how? You can easily set this up before you start printing on an envelope. Once you have set up the envelope according to your preference, you print, save, and reuse it later on.


How to set up a return address?

Step 1: Open Microsoft Word.

Step 2: Click the FILE tab.

Step 3: Choose OPTIONS.

Step 4: Click on ADVANCED.

Step 5: Scroll down, type the return address under GENERAL in the MAILING ADDRESS box.

Step 6: Click on OK.


How to verify printing options?


Before you perform a batch of envelope address printing, verify in the printer options if everything is set correctly. Here’s what you need to do:


Step 1: Go to the MAILINGS tab, CREATE group, and then choose ENVELOPES.

Step 2: Tick on OPTIONS, then click the ENVELOPE OPTIONS tab.

Step 3: Choose the options that match the size of enveloping you have in the ENVELOPE SIZE box.

Step 4: Hit on the PRINTING OPTION tab. Information to wherever the envelope must be loaded in the printer is being displayed here.


a.) The positioning of the loaded envelope is determined in the feed method. Whether it is aligned in the left, middle, or right place and defines whether the short or long edge is applied.

b.) The envelope can be either down or up, and it is the side that the address is printed upon.

c.) The envelope is rotated if it is fed the short edge first. This process will avoid the text from appearing upside down.


Step 5: Put the paper as shown in the dialogue box.

Step 6: Click OK.

Step 7: To test the printer, type something in the delivery address box and then click print to run the print test.

Step 8: See to it that it printed correctly.

Step 9: If you observe that it didn’t print properly, do the following:


  • Make sure that the printer is updated. If not, update it.
  • Check printer information if available to find out exactly how to properly load the envelope.
  • Go back to the printing option tab and make any alterations in the printing options. Then print again in such time that you determine the results that you wanted.
