I printed our return address on the small RSVP envelopes. It is doable, but just make sure you have TONS extra for mess ups. I had to scrap between 10-15 envelopes because the small size does not feed through the printer as easily as the bigger size envelopes, so the print was coming out all crooked.

 

My advice is to be patient and do batches of no more than 5 at a time when you do the envelopes. Let us know how it goes!

I DID IT!!

 

I spent this weekend working on them with my mom. We did it using Word. I was able to print the large square ones by using the "envelopes and labels" tool, customizing the size and changing the font. I used the delivery address for the return address and positioned it by changing the From Left and From Top options. Then I put them throuh the printer flap-side down so it would print on the back of the envelope instead of the front. The only bummer was that it took forever because I had to re-enter most of the information every time, and I had to hand-feed them into the printer, and press the "manual" button every time.

 

I was surprised the small ones worked, but I did it by opening a new document, typing in the address in the font I wanted, and going through print options to envelope #10 size. It also took a while because I had to enter envelope #10 and hand-feed the envelopes every time (flap-side up), but at least I didn't have to re-type the address or change the margins or press "manual" every time.

 

Karla was right: I needed extra for trial and error! But it was just to find out placement on the envelope and the size of the font I wanted, and i just kept printing on the same envelope til I got it right. I didn't have the problem of crooked printing, I think because I was hand-feeding them.

 

Thanks for all the advice, guys! They came out great and I am just waiting for the post office to open tomorrow to mail them off. I'm so excited to start getting replies!!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
