Anti-My-Handwriting

So I made the executive decision today that I WILL NOT be hand addressing my envelopes.... call me tacky, call me etiquette-less...... whatever, I don't care!

With much trial and error I finally got my printer and computer on the same page as my brain.... brown, centered text in a pretty font :-)

Wow...you PRINTED that?! It looks fantastic! I'm still debating doing the same. Although typing in all those addresses (not to mention getting the computer/printer/envelope to cooperate) can be quite the task. Good luck!

I used MS Word.

I have version 2007, so these directions might be a little off if you don't have that version.....

Go to MS Word, and click "mailings" at the top, then over on the left side you'll see "Start Mail Merge" click that, then a drop down menu will appear, click envelopes. Then you can click on to your "piece of paper" and boxes will appear where your return address goes and your delivery address goes. I opted to stamp our return address on the back flap, so I did not use the return address block. Now you can format your addresses however you want. I wanted them centered on the envelope and center justified font. You can click the box boarder and move it around too. I had to move mine up for longer addresses.

NOTE: If you click mailings, and then immediately click envelopes on the far left, it will not work- you must click start mail merge, then envelopes!

HTH!
